As Nigerians continue to react to Saturday’s tragic helicopter crash, which left Governor Patrick Yakowa, General Andrew Azazi and four others dead, a former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has described Nigeria as a federal republic of shattered dreams, plagued by bloodsucking demons.
In a statement last night, Mr. Fani-Kayode said Nigeria has become a geographical location for everything evil, spewing out too many tragedies, blood-letting and blood-spilling. He said the helicopter crash and the recurring air disaster in the country has again shown that the country is plagued by blood-sucking and relentless demons.
Read the former minister’s full statement below.
Today we have witnessed yet another tragic air crash in our nation with the usual attendant loss of life. This is so sad. There is so much death in this country. So many tears. So much evil. So much sadness and so many tragedies. So many shattered dreams, broken hearts and wounded souls. So much injustice and insensitivity. So much greed and want. So much bloodshed, blood-letting and blood-spilling.
Welcome to Nigeria- the Federal Republic of Sadism, Failure, Inequity, Injustice, Wickedness and Shattered Dreams. A land in which “men of God” do not pray but instead sell the annointing and buy private jets. A country where common decency, kindness and human compassion has no place. A nation in which the rulers pay homage to and make open sacrifices to satan. A country where ignorance and mediocrity is exalted and in which excellence and knowledge is scorned. A nation in which truth has no place and in which those that tell it are hated and treated with contempt. I weep for my country. May God deliver her from the blood-sucking and relentless demons that plague her.
