FFK’s Video Is Proof That APC and PDP Should Be Thrown Away

August 26, 2020

If you haven’t seen the video, find it below, but yes, Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK) really showed the darkest side to him when a Journalist asked him if his recent visit to Cross River and other PDP states were being sponsored, or “bankrolled”.

The thing is, there’s too many things that can be taken away from this horrific video, including the utter disrespect that many politicians have for Nigerian Journalists and the overbloated ego of a political class that don’t even think they are bigger than the laws of the land, but that they are in fact the laws of the land.

But what is an even bigger takeaway from this video, for me, is the fact that Nigerians must starting thinking of political parties different from the APC and the PDP, starting from yesterday. If FFK had not been beautifully caught on camera, he would have continued to join the rest of the country in condemning Buhari against Press freedom and so many other things. Alas, he’s just another closet tyrant who is incapable of handling the slightest taste of power.

We really just need a new orientation about things. We need leadership that is humane. We need political leaders who are careful of their words, especially in public. We need political leaders who are not power drunk, even when not in power. We need political leaders who will carefully explain issues when they feel slighted, or even excuse the meeting when their emotions are on the line.

We need a lot of really good political leadership in Nigeria. But I doubt we can get it from anybody in APC or PDP. From anybody we have around right now. Sadly, really.
