Former Aviation Minister ardent critic of Buhari administration, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode have weigh-in to diffuse the tension generated by the diatribe thrown at the Ooni of Ife, Oba Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi by Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
Igboho had, in a fit of emotion, described the revered monarch as a slave of the Fulanis for allegedly failing to tell President Muhammadu Buhari, during a meeting at Aso Rock, the home truth about the security challenges posed by Fulani terrorists in the South West.
Reacting to the development via his official Twitter account on Wednesday, Fani-Kayode said, “I just spoke with Sunday Igboho and he confirmed to me that what he said about our revered Ooni of Ife was said in the heat of the moment.
“He expressed his regrets and I was relieved to hear that. To err is human and to forgive is divine. I appeal to Kabiyesi to forgive him.
“For the record let me state clearly and categorically that no Ooni of Ife, whether living or dead, has ever been a slave of the Fulani and neither will they ever be.
“I can also confirm that my friend and brother Seyi Makinde, the Governor of Oyo state, is a deeply courageous individual who would never bow before anyone let alone be a slave to the Fulani.
“We in the South-West must remain united in our quest for liberty and justice and in the face of the common enemy and we must move forward as one.
“No one can dispute the fact that Sunday has fought hard and done well. He has won the respect of all and sundry in Yorubaland and he has inspired millions of our people all over the world. Let us forgive him for this slip and continue to support and pray for him.”
