Again Fani-Kayode Shreds British Envoy, Calls Him ‘The Strange Little Bald Man’

Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, has again attacked the Deputy British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ben Llewellyn-Jones for faulting him on comments he made during governorship election in Lagos State.

It will be recalled that Llewellyn-Jones had called out Fani-Kayode while speaking on a current affairs programme on Nigerian Info on Sunday, lamenting that the ruling All Progressives Congress {APC} had yet to distance itself from the controversial comments made by  the former minister.

Fani-Kayode, had in a series of tweets on Sunday evening asked the British envoy to take his ‘dirty nose out of the internal affairs of Nigeria’ in reaction to Llewellyn-Jones’ comments.

However, the Director of New Media at the APC Presidential Campaign Council, in fresh tweets on Monday, challenged the British envoy to do his worst, saying he feared no one.

He wrote: “Permit me to add the following addendum to my earlier personal response to the little Englander. I ask, who is this strange little British diplomat who believes he can tell us what Lagos State should be like in terms of ethnic make-up and how it should be run?

“He has accused me of hate speech and incitement simply because I said Lagos is not a no man’s land and that the Yoruba ought to be respected in their territory. Well let me say clearly and categorically that I have no apology for saying this and I stand by every word I said. We do not need any lessons from him. Foreign diplomats come to this country to enhance our relationship with theirs and not to give us lectures.

“They are not supposed to interfere in our internal affairs, to be partial, to tell us what to do or to tell us how to do it. They are meant to observe in studied silence and make their concerns and representations, if any, known privately. They cannot get into the political ring of fire.”

Fani-Kayode added that foreign diplomats should not tell people who to vote for, how to vote or what God to worship.

While challenging the British envoy to do his worst, Fani-Kayode said: “That strange little bald man with slooping shoulders at the British Embassy has really got a nerve. I will take up this matter formally. His diplomatic immunity is not absolute: it is qualified. He is therefore subject to our laws.

“As for his threats, I challenge him to do his very worst. We are not your slaves. Nigeria is an independent sovereign nation. We are no longer a colony. To hell with him and those that are egging him on and licking his feet. I am FFK: I fear no-one and I bow before no man.”

The former minister further stated that the hands of the British government were also not clean saying their “strong economy was built on the blood, sweat and tears of Irish, African and Indian slaves.”

“The days of dictation are long gone. What they are trying to do in our country and to our country will not work. Bola Tinubu won a free and fair election and, whether they like it or not, he will be sworn in on May 29th 2023.

“Those that want to impose an ING on our nation and follow it up with a civil war in an attempt to dismember and destroy her shall not prevail. Nigeria shall remain united, shall be at peace, shall flourish, shall excel and democracy shall be alive and well in our nation for many years to come,” he added.
