Former Minister of Aviation, Femi
Fani-Kayode, has revealed that there will be chaos in the country, if
President Muhammadu Buhari, dies in Aso Rock.
According to him, Northerners will
unleash mayhem on Nigeria, which will result into heavy bloodbaths, than
allow Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, to become President.
Fani, in an article entitled: “The
ailing President, and looming conflagration in Nigeria”, called on
Nigerians to pray for Buhari’s health.
“If this happens, we will have the
historic opportunity to organise ourselves and vote the APC out in a
peaceful election in 2019, but if it does not and Buhari dies before the
end of his tenure, no one in his right mind should expect a smooth
transition of power to the Vice President.He wrote: “The truth is that
we are sitting on a keg of gunpowder in this country, and I sincerely
hope and pray that the President’s health improves, and some measure of
order, predictability, sanity, peace, and stability, is restored.
“This is because, the cabal and Buhari’s
hard-line supporters and foot soldiers, simply despise him, and will
not allow it to happen.
“If the President dies whilst on the
throne, there will be chaos, carnage, and destruction, on an
unprecedented and massive scale in our country, because his core
Northern support-base will unleash mayhem on Nigeria, and particularly
on Southerners and Christians that reside in the North.
“What they fail to appreciate, is that
if that were to happen, there will be an equally massive and
unprecedented retaliation from the South and from the people of the
Middle Belt, and Nigeria will not survive it.
“It is unfortunate that things have come
to this, but let no one make any mistake: the will of the South must
not be tested. We are ready for the very worse, and whether anyone likes
it or not, Southern unity and solidarity is on the rise.
He therefore, asked Nigerians not to forget the President in their daily prayers.
“We pray for our President: that God
will forgive him of his many sins, grant him good health, and spare his
life, but we also warn those that are planning to harm our people, to
sheath their swords, before they set off a chain of events that will
cause an unprecedented, historic, and massive conflagration on the
African continent, the likes of which have never been seen before,” he
