Femi Fani Kayode has lambasted Abubakar Malami for drawing an analogy between the ban open grazing to the ban on sales of spare parts in the North.
The Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) has come under heavy criticism for berating the decision of the Southern Governors who had a meeting on May 11 in Asaba, the capital of Delta State.
In reaction, the former Aviation Minister Fani-Kayode, said Malami’s remark was unfair, stressing that the Southeastern people had been marginalized enough.
He made this known in a tweet released on Friday morning via his handle. It reads;
“It is totally unacceptable and deeply and inherently racist to compare spare part dealers to killer herdsmen.
“Permit me to ask: is it a CRIME to be Igbo in Nigeria?
“We killed millions of them (including their children) over the last 61 years. We terrorised them.
“We traumatised them. We insulted them. We denied them. We deprived them. We dehumanised them.
“We mocked them. We criminalised them. We marginalised them. We humiliated them. We forced them to stay when they wanted to leave.
“We caged them. We broke them. We cheated them.
“It is ungodly. It is evil! It is totally and completely unacceptable.
“It erroneously depicts us as a nation of unrepentant barbarians, savages and sadists that have no sense of justice or decency and that is NOT who or what we are as a people! We are far better than that!
“As long as we have this utterly racist, bigoted, shameless and self-deprecating mindset about our Igbo compatriots and fellow human beings things cannot go well for us as a people and as a nation. This is the bitter truth”.
