A former Minister of Aviation of Nigeria, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said that US Secretary, Rex Tillerson, might have been affected by his visitation to President Muhammadu Buhari.
It will be recalled that Tillerson was sacked by US President Donald Trump 12 hours after visiting President Muhammadu Buhari at Aso Rock.
Fani-Kayode in a tweet on Tuesday alleged that President Muhammad Buhari has ‘chronic bad luck’.
He said: “If it is not that Buhari has chronic bad luck how is it that within 12 hours of seeing him in Abuja, Rex Tillerson, the American Sec. of State,was removed from office by @realDonaldTrump and replaced with George Pompeio of the CIA?Congrats George!My advice?Steer clear of Buhari!”
The tweet, however, generated reactions from Nigerians; majority of whom described FFK’s tweet as a hate speech.
One of them, Sade Olamide cautioned Nigeria’s policiticians over Tillerson’s sack, saying: “President Trump is sending a LOUD message to Nigerians and to the political elite. Unfortunately, our leaders have no knowledge of understanding the global rearrangement, etc.”
