Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the exchange between wife of Nigeria’s President, Aisha Buhari and the Senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani.The duo used animal metaphors in describing the power play around the State House in recent times.
Fani-Kayode tweeted on Tuesday: “First it was ‘dogs and baboons’. Now it is ‘hyenas and jackals’. Nigeria has been turned into a jungle fit only for animals by the Buharis!”
Nigerians who commented on social media, also said it was wrong to illustrate the tussle in the presidency with animals.
Others who lent their voices to the conversation alleged that the duo had joined Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in calling Nigeria a zoo.
Though Mrs. Buhari and Senator Sani did not categorically call Nigeria a zoo, they spoke metaphorically in a way that left many in doubt of the actual message the two tried to convey.
