Femi Fani-Kayode: A Statesman Par Excellence

By Mohammed Bello Doka, Political Editor, Abuja Network News.

When former Minister of Aviation and APC chieftain, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, joined the ranks of the All Progressive Congress, he brings with him a renewed sense of hope and undoubtedly becoming a valuable asset to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu's agenda. As the Sadaukin Shinkafi, Fani-Kayode has proven his honesty, expertise, and unwavering loyalty not only to the President and the APC but, most importantly, to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Fani-Kayode, a man known for his generosity and chivalry, stands out among the APC leaders by using his hard-earned resources to support party structures across the country without seeking recognition or making any noise about it. As a reporter and researcher, I have come across numerous instances where Fani-Kayode has silently intervened and provided assistance to these party structures. Though he often requests that these interventions remain discreet, I feel compelled as a journalist and publisher to acknowledge such noble gestures, just as I condemn ignoble acts.

While I respect his wish for privacy regarding his interventions, it would be a disservice to ignore the details of such impactful actions. However, I trust that with time, nothing remains hidden forever, not even the sun in the darkest night. The truth will eventually emerge, defying the doubts of naysayers.

Moreover, Fani-Kayode stands out as one of the few courageous APC chieftains who fearlessly bring matters of national importance to the attention of the President. An example of this can be seen in his opposition to the proposed military intervention in neighboring Niger Republic. Through extensive research and substantial financial investment, Fani-Kayode vehemently argued against its implementation and demonstrated how it would fail to benefit Nigeria in any way.

Even without an official portfolio, Fani-Kayode has been actively providing support and offering free consultancy services to those in government, drawing from his wealth of experience, twice a former minister and a special adviser to one time President as well as other portfolios too numerous to mention. A recent example of this can be seen in his visit to the Honorable Minister of State for Defense, Hon. Bello Matawalle, the former Governor of Zamfara State.

In Fani-Kayode, Nigeria is fortunate to have a selfless citizen who transcends tribal, religious, caste, and class barriers in his unwavering support for the nation. This quality has endeared him to people from all walks of life, forging friendships with the rich, the powerful, the middle class, and even the downtrodden. In each case, he consistently strives to make a positive impact on the lives of those he encounters—a true testament to his honorable character.

As Fani-Kayode takes his place within the renewed hope government, it is evident that he is not just a blessing to the APC but also to Nigeria as a whole. His presence serves as a reminder that there are still individuals committed to the noble cause of advancing the nation's interests, regardless of personal gain or recognition.

With Fani-Kayode's entrance into the APC, a new chapter unfolds, offering renewed optimism and the promise of a brighter future for Nigeria. As we witness the dedication, generosity, and astuteness he brings to the party, we can only remain hopeful for what lies ahead.
