Former minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has released a statement congratulating the three major opposition parties on their various conventions and merger arrangements.
Fani-Kayode described their progress as one that “provides hope for Nigeria and it represents the only vehicle and platform that can deliver our nation from the hands of the PDP and the Jonathan administration.”
Then he latched into the Jonathan administration, describing it as an administration of “tyranny, blackmail, pettiness and incompetence.”
Speaking further, Fani-Kayode said that, “The various resolutions to merge into one new party is a first step in the right direction. I sincerely hope and pray that every other step shall follow and that we will all join hands to break the stranglehold of evil that the Jonathan administration represents and has foisted on our country for the last two years. I urge all those that want to see a positive change in our great country to join the APC.”
Fani-Kayode who was a spokesman and minister under the PDP administration of Olusegun Obsasnjo, but who, just like many other Obasanjo loyalists, lost ground in the party, had more harsh words for President Jonathan and his government, describing the prospect of a Jonathan administration remaining in power for the next six years as “the greatest disaster and affliction that could possibly be foisted on our people. God has rejected our President and his Government and the Lord will honour His word by ensuring that he is roundly defeated at the polls in 2015. The circle is complete and this is the time for all men and women of goodwill to rally around the new standard to stand up for truth and to resist evil.”
