Tinubu’s Swearing-In: ‘DSS Will Work Tirelessly To Stop Us From Tearing Each Other Apart’ – Fani-Kayode Threatens
Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has again threatened supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP) to desist from their attempts to annul the 2023 presidential election which produced Bola Tinubu as President-elect.
Naija News reports that the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, in a statement released on Saturday, hints at what the country would experience as he likened Nigeria to the case of the Rwanda genocide, Kigali.
Fani-Kayode, who averred that LP and PDP are attempting to start what they cannot finish, said the country would be made ungovernable if Tinubu’s swearing-in does not hold.
According to him, the Department of State Services, DSS, will have to work day and night to stop Nigerians from tearing each other apart.
He said, “As a consequence of the events of the last few days I am constrained to say that, the Nigerian opposition, represented by the followers of Atiku Abubakar (Atikulators) and the followers of Peter Obi (Obidients), have lost control of their senses.
“They need to get a grip before it is too late. They are attempting to start something that they cannot finish and that they cannot possibly fathom the end of. They are beating the drums of war and are indulging in a level of irresponsible and downright dangerous behaviour that has NEVER been witnessed before in the annals of the history of our politics.
“As a consequence of their subterranean manipulations, byzantine conspiracies, unhinged vituperations and unbridled desperation things are getting very hot and they are pushing us towards an Armageddon-like meltdown and the road to Kigali.
“Be rest assured that had it not been for impartiality, strong resolve, persistent interventions and sheer professionalism of our intelligence agencies and particularly the DSS who have worked day and night to keep the peace and stop us from tearing each other apart, we would have trod that disastrous path and met a bitter end long ago.
“I counsel you to calm down, purge yourself of hate, sheath your sword of war, drop your dastardly game plan and not so hidden agenda to establish an Interim Government, desist from displaying madness, bend the knee and bow to your President-elect, refrain from weaponizing falsehood, act within the law and if you must, make your protestations quietly in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility and there will be no problems.
“However if you continue to say you do not believe in the system or institutions, that the President-elect must not be sworn in under any circumstances and that you have no faith in the courts or the rule of law and you encourage people to take the law into their own hands then you are inviting chaos, anarchy, violence, tyranny, fascism, treason, a breach of the constitution and the law of the jungle and we will NOT sit by idly and allow that.
“Let this serve as a timely warning. We cannot be a punching bag for the opposition forever and soon we will react. Trust me when I tell you that if there is any foul play in this matter or any conspiracy to thwart the people’s will, we will make this nation ungovernable.”
