Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has berated President Muhammadu Buhari for inviting the Chinese doctors to the country whilst his people are being treated like a slave in the country.
The former aviation minister and one-time senior special adviser to President Olusegun Obasanjo on political matters, Chief Femi Fani- Kayode has condemned in strong terms the invitation of Chinese doctors to Nigeria in the wake of Nigerians being evicted out of China forcefully while the coronavirus rages on the in the country.
In a tweet, Fani-Kayode wrote, “Whilst Buhari is inviting the Chinese to Nigeria to “help fight Covid 19”, the Chinese Govt. is throwing Nigerians out of their homes, persecuting them, subjecting them to the vilest and despicable human rights abuses and mocking, insulting and humiliating them on a daily basis!”
Recall that Nigerian consul-Gen of the Nigerian high commission in China, Mr Anozie Maduabuchi Cyril, has confronted the Chinese officials after they appeared to have seized passports of Nigerians while trying to forcefully evict them out of their homes.
On Cyril, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode said, “After our Consul-Gen. in China complained about the way in which Nigerians are being treated by the Chinese authorities they assaulted him and threatened his life. This is reckless, dangerous, unacceptable and provocative behaviour on the part of the Chinese and it must stop
Berating President Muhammadu Buhari, Fani-Kayode wrote, “If not for the fact that we have a weak, corrupt, incompetent and cowardly Federal Government who do not care about our people this would not be happening. Under Buhari Nigerians were sold into slavery in Libya, killed in South Africa, vilified in Britain and treated like scum in China”. Fani-Kayode tweeted.
Meanwhile in response to the viral video showing how Nigerians are being treated, Speaker for the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila met with the Chinese head of Mission to Nigeria where he protested the maltreatment of Nigerians and calls for an end to such inhumane treatment of Nigerians in China.
