The actor in an open letter to the President on his Instagram account condemned the President for smiling and receiving flowers in the country which he claims is still wet with the blood of his children killed in Xenophobic attacks.
According to Fabiyi, receiving the reception is like spitting on the graves of Nigerians that were killed during the attack.
Read the open letter below:
“GEN. BUHARI WHAT IF YOUR SON WAS KILLED IN SOUTH AFRICA XENOPHOBIA”
“Mr President, I am writing this letter with a heavy heart. Attached pictures are allegedly your arrival in South Africa, a land still wet with the blood of your children and you are all smiles receiving flowers to a heroes welcome on a red carpet.”
“I put it to you, sir, such an arrangement was never queried because your son or close relative was not part of those killed gruesomely. From the last I know, my son lives in South Africa, and I put myself in the shoes of those parents, families whose breadwinners lives were cut short out of hate, wickedness and outright evil, how will they perceive this? Will you demand true justice?”
“Under the UN article, every person has the right to travel and live anywhere in the world. What if your son was killed(God forbid), is this the kind of entry your protocol will accept? Sir, Nigeria can do better. The govt who cannot send one of the aircraft in your fleet to evacuate planned this, disgusting. Nigerians that loot shoprites are in court and South Africans that killed your sons, daughters and countrymen are giving you red carpet welcome. Shameful.”
“Sir, your ability to allow SARS to torment Nigerians without you addressing it vigorously. That peaceful protests disrupted right from what Legendry Tuface Idibia planned to the recent Omoyele Sowore’s planned revolution protest are no good signs for our democracy. Maybe this is why you hardly bother rejecting or query some diplomatic or govt actions that may anger Nigerians, maybe you assume we FEAR you and protest can never happen. For how long?”
“In my opinion, that welcome and body language is like spitting on the graves of slain Nigerians. That is even if the Nigerian Embassy know where the bodies are, how they were buried and where they were buried.”
“I will continue to speak up responsibly on matters that affect people’s peace, that may trigger perpetual violence on and offline. In the case of Nigeria, SILENCE HAS NEVER BEEN GOLDEN, IT IS BECOMING A PUNISHMENT. The culture of silence, fear and cowardice are reasons why most political evil, non-challelance and extreme disregard continue unabated.”
