Freshly back from London where he went to visit his sick boss, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state had this to say about Femi Fani Kayode: “The guy (Fani-Kayode) is a spoilt child, one of those whose parents over pampered they hardly talk like human beings. Apart from somebody who went into government, he is not known for doing business. I wonder if he has ever worked and all of a sudden he had political appointment. He has nothing else to brandish apart from the father’s name. Remove his father’s name; I don’t think he is a human being. Rochas grew from the scratch. By the grace of God and hard work, he is where he is today. But that one apart from coming to politics what else does he have to brandish?” OUCH!
Governor Okorocha was reacting to a statement credited to the former aviation minister about the images showing APC chieftains’ visit to president Buhari in London; Fani-Kayode had described the images as fake and added that Okorocha, who conveyed the message, was a liar.
Also, in an interview with the BBC, Governor Rochas also pledged his full support to the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in spite of his health challenges, adding that the president is “doing well and will return to Nigeria in 2 weeks”
“He’s very very ok, believe me, he’s very ok. The Buhari I met yesterday is very sound and in high spirit.” But you know, whatever it takes, he might be coming back again (to London) from time to time for his medical checks and all that. But I think he’s in high spirits. He will perform his duty as a president definitely.”
