Femi Fani-Kayode has blasted the Buhari-led government for pasting a photo of herdmen on the new Nigerian passport.
In a statement he released this morning July 12th, Fani-Kayode described the photo of herdsmen on the new passport as an insult to Nigerians and their heritage.
He rejeceted it and called for the removal of what he termed the ”accursed page” and called for the replacement of the page with ”another symbol that truly represents the noble, enlightened, civilised and laudable nature and heritage of the Nigerian people’.

Read the full statement below

Quote
Fulani herdsmen are symbols of bloodshed, terror, mass murder, ethnic-cleansing, genocide, carnage, torment, trauma, and evil.

They represent nothing other than cruelty, suffering, land-grabbing, church-burning, home-stealing, molesting and pillaging and they are instruments of occupation, domination and conquest.

They have slaughtered more Nigerians over the last 4 years than Boko Haram have done in 10 and they have been designated as the 4th most deadly terrorist organisation in the world by the international community.

To dedicate a page of the Nigerian passport to them and paste their picture on it represents the biggest and most gratutious insult to the Nigerian people that has ever been served.

It is like dedicating a page of the Israeli passport to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis that slaughtered 6 million Jews.

It is like dedicating a page of the Southern Sudanese passport to the Janjaweed Arab Muslims of Darfur that slaughtered hundreds of thousands of black African Christians in the Sudan.

It is like dedicating a page of the Congolese passport to King Leopold 11 of Belgium and his people after they butchered 10 million Congolese.

It is like dedicating a page of the Rwandan passport to the Hutu Interahamwe after they wiped out 1 million Rwandan Tutsis.

It is like dedicating a page of the American passport to the rebel Confederate forces of the Amerian civil war and to the Ku Klux Klan who slaughtered miliions of black Americans over the years and who insisted on the perpetuation of the institution of slavery.

It is like dedicating a page of the Souh African passport to the white supremacist Boers and Afrikaans-speaking Dutch settlers of South Africa who founded and established the apartheid state, who butchered milions of black Africans over 400 years and who believed that the black man was no better than an ape.

Such a gesture is heartless and unforgivable and it is unbecoming of even the Buhari regime. It is insensitive. It is callous. It is wicked. It is uncharitable. It is unkind and it is evil.

The worship and veneration of cows and cow-loving is alien to the Nigerian culture and it is regarded as an abomination.

We are a nation of believers that worship God and not one that worship cows. Those amongst us that regard cows as wives and that value the life of a cow more than the life of a human being are not Nigerians but aliens that come from a distant land outside our shores.

To paste such people and their accursed cows on our international passport and compel Nigerians to carry them all over the world with us as part of our national identity, heritage and culture is unaccpetable and too much to ask.

We reject it in its entirety and we insist that the Buhari administration removes that accursed page forthwith and replace it with another symbol that truly represents the noble, enlightened, civilised and laudable nature and heritage of the Nigerian people.

We refuse to accept a symbol that represents a retrograde, barbaric, blood-lusting, vampiric, malignant, malevolent and bestial foreign heritage and culture on our passport.

FFK, the inclusion of this picture in the passport may be offensive to our sensibility, based on the current ignible actions of these peoplethe, fact still remains, the offenders are a facet of our national life. Not to worry, nothing lasts long in Nigeria, especially when the progenitors are no longer in power. Remember Soludo's polimer currency? Though hailed as the best thing to happen to the Country at the time, crtissims were heaped on the invention as soon as the man stepped out of reckoning.

Nothing lasts forever in Nigeria you say,and that is why we must wait for Buhari to step down from office before this could be talked about and eventually changed.......sums up all that is wrong with Nigeria....the fear of speaking up and aggressively challenging wrong decisions of sitting Governments.

From your comment,I can see that you are not Igbo....but you are woke !!. If only we can have more like you from the Igbos and the Yorubas...people that will not allow ethnicism to blur their view of the truth.
