Meanwhile, Nigeria’s former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the tenure expiration of Tunde Fowler as Chairman, Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, and appointment of Nami by President Muhammadu Buhari.
See what he said:
Finally Fowler of FIRS is out and, just as I predicted, he has been replaced by a northern Muslim. When will Tinubu and Osinbajo finally accept that they were outflanked, outmanouvered, fooled and scammed into betraying their own people by the Fulani cabal. More to come!
