Former Minister of Culture and Tourism Femi Fani-Kayode says the voice message of President Muhammadu Buhari to Muslim faithful on Eid-el-fitr celebration is “fake and a scam”.
The Presidency has released the president’s voice message to Nigerians to debunk reports that he is suffering from speech impairment.
But in an interview with DAILY POST, the chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said, “Every body knows the recording is not the president’s voice. We are firmly in the grip of dictatorship.
“They are on top of the pyramid, the rest of us are slaves. God forbid that Nigeria continue like this, we must free ourselves.”
Fani-Kayode added that the “strategy gone wrong” voice message was the same handlers of late President Yar’Adua used when he was very ill in Saudi Arabia.
“This is just like the one Yar’Adua purportedly had with BBC. They were trying to make us believe it was him.
“It was an extensive interview which at the end of the day, turned out wasn’t Yar’Adua’s voice.
“We are seeing the same pattern again. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry and I don’t know whether I am witnessing a comedy show.
“I speak from an informed position and I can tell you clearly and categorically that the person who spoke was not President Buhari.
“Those behind this scam are very insensitive and they have the IQ of a monkey.
“The person spoke in Hausa because it is what they consider as the official language of Nigeria. They couldn’t even communicate in English.”
