Femi Fani-Kayode: A Sniff Of Foolishness By Remi Oyeyemi

by Good News

“The stubborn listens to no one’s advice and becomes a victim of his hang delusion.”

— Aesop

He came out smoking. He became fire-cracking. He flailed feebly and floutingly. He gamboled ghoulishly and noxious. It became a berserk noctambulism. Dipped within the natatorium of perplexity because of his hang peccadilloes, he desperately swam love a cat fish in a poisoned pond. He became love a bull within the china shop. Admire a rattled snake, he seamlessly and carelessly sprayed poisonous inanities to interpret his foolishness and wicked public shenanigans. He acted love a desperate goat cornered. He painted his charlatanism in quivering colors and deodorized his boondoggles.

He showed that he’s a dreadful ingredient about whom we could per chance aloof all watch out for the sanity of our polity. He concretized himself as a pariah from whom t’erú t’omo could per chance aloof end away. Apart from for those that will seemingly be attracted to feeding this onomatopoeic canines in repeat to send him on odious errands, he is rarely any use to the polity. He demonstrated outright lack of decency and courtesy for himself and no topic he had ever stood for, if the rest at all. He showcased himself as selfish, self- centered, egoistic and homicidally egocentric. He made it particular that he didn’t care a little relating to the rest as lengthy as his childish, self-detrimental needs are delighted at all prices and by all system.

He spoke of his faith however never talked just a few explicit faith. In this context, it’ll had been the Christian, Islamic, Ayélâla, Ògún, Sàngó or any diverse one for that topic. Nonetheless gauging from his public writings, it is miles safer to defend that he became speaking of Christian faith. He then took liberty for license to abuse the Christian faith. He maligned the Christian faith. He slandered the Christian faith. In so doing, he had forgotten that he’s not essentially the most straight forward who has learn the Bible. Sure, he’s entitled to his hang interpretations, however he must understand that all of us reserve the rights to refuse, reject and rebuff his rancid interpretations. His diabolical use of the Christian faith as a defend for irresponsibility, insensitivity and imperturbability, will not be unnoticed. 

In his hurried response, Femi didn’t care to remind us of the save and when Pantami apologized for his acts of terrorism upon which his (Femi’s) faith mandated forgiveness. He didn’t confirm for the readers that “civilization” supposed ethnic detoxification, execute of inclined males, young and extinct, raping of our moms, daughters, sisters and aunts, the destruction of our farms, burning of our villages and cities and appropriating of our ancestral lands. 

Sure, he’s shining. Nonetheless he’s not smarter than all people. Yet in his hang foolishness, he thinks he’s. In any other case, he haven’t got self-immolated in his response to those that cared ample to call his attention to his ignominious day out alongside with his terrorist “brother and buddy” Sheikh Ali Ibrahim Pantami. He could per chance aloof had been extra sober. He could per chance aloof absorb tarried a little bit to speak relating to the problem sooner than his vituperation. 

Femi Fani-Kayode is any individual whom many absorb defended, in conjunction with myself, despite his evident inconsistencies. In his Instagram rant, he showed no iota of fancy for that crowd for being miffed at his indiscretion. He showed them no scintilla of appreciate as he descended into opprobrious needs for all of them. Femi refused to behold that appreciate is reciprocal and that he owed those that had been giving him advantages of the doubt some modicum of reciprocal advantages of the doubt. He clearly showed that he became irresponsible by insisting he owed them no clarification.

This faulty and silly response would nearly haunt him in due route attributable to he became acting love the devil as he perverted the meaning of the note “civilization.” I never knew that “civilization” supposed pandering to murderers and terrorists. His depth-less 

simplification of the camaraderie within the kleptomaniac crowd as a justification for his hang shenanigans is noxious. There is absolute self perception that Femi is aware of that he has handed the ball within the sector, he became dazzling unable to extricate himself from the internet of his greed.

Femi spoke of his braveness. Everybody is aware of Femi is brave, however he could per chance aloof beware of the braveness of the hungry rat who chased after the meat on tàkúté and ended up being killed. He then wrote inter alia:

“All I do know is that I will never prostitute my principles or compromise my stance on fundamental factors and I will disagree with of us that I choose to disagree with however I will never be driven by detest or be deaf, dumb and blind to motive.”

The tragedy of the problem is that already, most Nigerians notion about him an intellectual and political prostitute. He is deemed to set aside not need any precept beyond making wealth by milking the system. Nigerians perception that he would lick any stinking ass, chunk the imperfect of any boot, speck any malodorous cheek and whiff any effluvial sweat to belong to any crew in repeat to absorb the replacement. To Nigerians, he has no integrity. Neither does he contain self-dignity. He is considered as a rabid canines that is eternally, desperately ravenous. He is regarded by Nigerians as an audacious and flagrant canary that could assert on the behold of any fetid crumb

Many who had nursed any hope of rebirth for the Fani-Kayode family title absorb became forlorn. They’ve nearly cherish that an apple falls not too far far from the tree. They’ve realised that genes tend to be right and can not be simply purged from a descendant. The recollections of his father’s atrocities in Western Space is aloof aloof. Many of his father’s victims, many of whom are far older than Femi are aloof alive to express the harrowing reports of his father’s putrid politics.

In 1964, Chief S. L. Akintola, became getting back from Ekiti and handed by Ilesa. His convoy handed in front of Ilesa Grammar College, Ilesa, and it became an Inter Home Sports actions day. The college students who seen his convoy began to hail him “SLA” “SLA” “SLA”. The convoy stopped pondering the college students had been shouting “Esè Olè” which actually supposed “Footprints of a thief.” Remilekun Fani-Kayode, Femi’s father, led the assault on innocent college students as they had been chased with the infamous UTC machetes, wounding a lot of of them whereas he climbed the college fence giving directives to his thugs.

Consider a Deputy Premier of all of the Western Space climbing the college fence to unleash thugs on college childhood! What could per chance they’ve completed to warrant such heartlessness and recklessness? What lack of etiquette will even be so diminishing? What a flagrant and blatant exudation of lack of restraint anticipated of such a high office as that of Deputy Premier? What a miasmic manifestation of indiscipline, indiscretion, indecency as effectively as  uncouthness!

Whereas the sordid incident became unraveling, it became reported that one in all the college students, Olaseni Adeboye, who represented the college in Javelin throwing, became going to throw his javelin to hit RFK. It took the intervention of the science master and Javelin coach, Mr “Segmo”, a South African, who forcefully pulled Olaseni’s arm lend a hand and ended up dislocating the acknowledged arm. In any other case RFK would had been a ineffective man in Ilésa.

This became a reportedly sophisticated gentleman by all requirements. Having completed at King’s College, Lagos, Remilekun Fani-Kayode went to Downing College on the University of Cambridge, in 1941. He then did the British Bar examinations and came high in his 300 and sixty five days for all of the of the British Commonwealth. He became known as to The British Bar on the Heart Temple in 1945, and went on to be appointed Queens Counsel in 1960 (he became the third and youngest Nigerian ever to be made Q.C). Later, he became made a Senior Recommend of Nigeria in 1977 (he became the third Nigerian to be made a SAN). Regardless of all this, Femi’s father, RFK, aloof became out to be a tout and a thug! One other example of the irrelevance of chains of white man’s stage to having a right education and making a solid character.

So, Femi wouldn’t be doing the rest out of his genetic character if he didn’t care what someone thinks about him as a practising political and intellectual prostitute. Many Yoruba had been skittish when he surfaced in Sunday (Ìgbòho Òòsà) Adeyemo’s home in Ibadan. The History of what took verbalize since then are but to be instructed, some ponder. Femi could per chance aloof know that no-one needs his apology attributable to it would absorb supposed nothing to no one. The  Bologna Chapter of Partito Socialista Italiano (PSI) or Italian Socialist Birthday celebration had a motto: “He who betrayed once, will make it some other time.” 

Femi had contemptuously asked in his acerbic response: “Are you proceed to foaming on the mouth attributable to I shook fingers with Isa Pantami?” Wisely, I call his attention to the that I am blissful to foam within the mouth about his treacherous trajectory, if that could cincture our polity from the dirty tricks of a uncertain political wayfarer and intellectual prostitute love him. Optimistically, he would give me some other replacement to “foam” within the mouth with a goal to call him out on his perfidious pandering to the terrorists threatening our existential survival, after this.

Nwón ní k’ómo tí ò gbón kó má kû, kí ló npa’ni bí agò. Yèyénátù.

“In the lengthy history of the area, simplest just a few generations had been granted the position of defending freedom in its hour of maximum concern. I make not shrink from this responsibility – I welcome it.

-John F. Kennedy
