If Oil Is Found In The North, Buhari Will Call For Breakup of Nigeria, Says Fani Kayode
Labels: National News
The outspoken former minister of aviation and the director of media and publicity of the 2015 presidential campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Femi Fani-kayode has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari would advocate for “a breakup” of Nigeria if crude oil is found in the north.
While reacting to the recent commencement of exploration for crude oil in the northern part of Nigeria, he said: “My prayer for Nigeria is that oil is found in commercial quantities in the core north. I am glad that Buhari is looking for it desperately.
“If he finds it, he and the north will be the first to call for a breakup of the country. If he fails to find it they will continue to be the the greatest obstacle to the restructuring of our nation and they will continue to provide the greatest opposition to the peaceful division of our country.”
“Why? Because without southern oil the north is nothing”, Fani-Kayode added.
The controversial ex-minister who was recently released from a 67-day detention, is being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly receiving funds meant for the prosecution of the Boko Haram war, from the office of the national security adviser.
