'Remember your three boys are from an Igbo woman' - Knocks for FFK for saying Lagos belongs to the Yorubas

Femi Fani Kayode Femi Fani Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayado has come under intense criticism for describing Lagos as a Yoruba state.

Social media went into a frenzy after Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) declared Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu the winner of the governorship elections.

In his state on his social media pages, FFK called out the opposition political parties who believed they could defeat Sanwo-Olu in Lagos.

Excerpts of his statement read: "That @jidesanwoolu remains Governor of Lagos state regardless of the threats, plotting, scheming, rantings and rumblings of envious, hate-filled, bitter, demon-possessed and satanically- inspired men."

"That guests and aliens that reside in Lagos must know their place and NEVER claim the state as their own again."

Read FFK's statement

Those that believed that Lagos is a "no man's land" have been roundly defeated, badly humiliated and finally taught the lesson of their lives by voters today in a peaceful, free and fair election.

The matter is settled and the message is 8-fold:

1. That God answers prayers even in the most complicated situations and difficult circumstances , that He is able to deliver us from the hands of our strong enemies and the enemy within and that He rules in the affairs of men.

2. That Lagos belongs to the Yoruba.

3. That @jidesanwoolu remains Governor of Lagos state regardless of the threats, plotting, scheming, rantings and rumblings of envious, hate-filled, bitter, demon-possessed and satanicallly- inspired men.

4. That guests and aliens that reside in Lagos must know their place and NEVER claim the state as their own again.

5. That the liberal open door policy to guests and aliens must be reviewed and reforms and laws put in place to protect and secure the culture, identity and rights of the Yoruba in Lagos and to confirm and re-affirm the indisputable and incontrovertible fact that Lagos is not only part and parcel of the SW but also belongs to the Yoruba.

6. That motor park touts and sewer rats like Jandor and those that wish to sell their heritage and race down the river and join forces with those that claim Lagos is "no man's land" like Gbadebo have no place in the politics of Yoruba land.

7. That the fraternal alliance and strong political bridge that has been built between the people of the SW and the people of the North must NEVER again be broken and must be preserved and protected until the end of time.

8. That patience, good planning and a firm and strong resolve to do what is right, to maintain the peace, to honor God, to challenge and defy satan and to stand up for the truth always wins the day.

These are the messages that have been sent and lessons that have been learnt over the last few days and weeks as regards events and the elections in Lagos state and we shall never forget them.

Never again will ANYONE say that Lagos is a no man's land.

Eko Akete, Ilu Ogbon! Eko O gba gbere rara o!

To God alone be the glory!

Reactions trail his comment

relevantfactorwithbernard commented: "The biggest and the major problem with you people the Yorubas, the Hausas and some other tribalism/xenophobia tribes is that you people are Intimidated always by the cumbersome and magnificent successes of the IGBOs and y'all can't stand it nor contend with it. That's why you all nursing and developing Envy, Jealousy and Hatred on the IGBOs because y'all can't contend with the amount of their Massive wealth and successes and Entrepreneural ability and capacities. If not what else is your problem?"

"The Igbos that migrate to a State, Country and Buy Lands, Build Houses, Build Businesses, Create Jobs, Contribute to GDP, Make Investments, Obey Laws and Pay their Tax and still you aren't happy with yourselves with a particular tribe that does nothing to you except minding their businesses and doing well at it to an extent you can't stand nor contend with their robust successes and wealths, out of Jealousy, Envy and Insensitive Hatred y'all are exhibiting your frustrations and weaknesses. You should be ashamed of yourselves that a particular tribe left his space and come to your space and strive/thrive in a massive way more than you the original owner of the place."

"Is that not supposed to be a challenge to you and make some of you xenophobia boogies to be ashamed of yourselves and at the same time be giving them accolades for breaking records and making history in another man's land."

"Maybe you do not know that Yorubas, Hausas and other tribes in their large numbers are living also in all the South Eastern states in Igbo land doing their lawful businesses without any form of threats, insults, fight from the indigenous IGBOs."

"Instead they love strangers in Igbo land and make their stay there peaceful, comfortable and hospitable for them. No IGBO threatened them or tell them to leave their ancestral land and go back to their Land. But only the Yorubas in their land and the Hausa and other tribes in their land with their primitive thinking, tribalism mentally that you will hear such uncivilized tribalism and xenophobic statements from them."

williampowersinc wrote: "Egbin, you're absolutely correct. There should be law in place as soon as possible to prevent the malicious claim that "Lagos is a no man's land" in all its ramifications. Otherwise, we'd be rendered as on lookers on our ancestral land."

suwakweh commented: "This despicable element and other APC rascals manufactured a premise to fan the embers of ethnic division and fake outrage, so they can continue milking Lagosians, and simpletons fell for their pranks. The Agboroism you voted for will remain with you. Instead of standing together to defeat the evil Apc that has shackled Lagos for 24 years, these heartless riggers sold you a false narrative, and you ran with it foolishly. Enjoy the reign of a government installed by low-lives and Agboros. Congrats!"
