Obasanjo's Letter: Fani-Kayode Challenges Al-Mustapha To Explain Role In Snipers' Training, Describes PDP As Sinking Ship


Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has challenged the former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to the late Head of State, General Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, to come out and explain to Nigerians where he was on the day former President Olusegun Obasanjo forwarded his 18-page scathing letter to President Goodluck Jonathan.

Fani-Kayode urged Al-Mustapha to direct his challenge to a member of the military of his own rank or to one of Obasanjo’s aides because according to him, Obasanjo is too busy to respond to his challenges. He advised Mustapha to concentrate on answering questions raised by the letter Obasanjo sent to President Jonathan rather than throwing challenges of that nature knowing fully who Obasanjo is. 

The former minister also disclosed that the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is on the brink of collapse and described it as a sinking ship.

He said he dumped the party about seven months ago to join All Progressives Congress (APC), which he described as a progressive party, instead of sinking with the PDP, which he said had lost focus.

Fani Kayode made the disclosure while speaking with journalists in Kano Government House yesterday where he had gone to pay the governor a courtesy visit. 

He said, “There are issues that Al-Mustapha ought to have addressed such as his where about the day the letter was made public. Perhaps he should have told the public where he was when the letter was made public.

“Is there any truth in the assertion that he was in North Korea to consult with his old friends that were deeply involved with him during the Abacha regime when they were organising a killer squad. If that wasn’t what he was doing then is he sightseeing there? I am asking these questions and the public are also keen to know the truth.

“If it is true that Al-Mustapha is treading in this dangerous course, he should retract his steps because the Nigerian people may not be as forgiven as he thinks and he may not be as lucky as he was the last time,” the former minister said.
