Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani Kayode, FFK, has reacted to the disruption of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, convention that led to the suspension of election into national offices of the party.
FFK said he foresaw the incident and warned against it but no one cared to listen to him.
On Wednesday the PDP suspended the election into its national executive council.
The party took the decisions at an emergency National Executive Committee meeting in Port Harcourt, Rivers state capital, after the disruption of its National Convention by the police and soldiers.
We gathered that security agents had sealed off Sharks Stadium in the state capital and prevented the National Convention from holding.
They were said to have been acting on an order from an Abuja Federal High Court.
The court declared the convention illegal and said it should be held on another date after September 7, 2016.
Following the development, the party said it had shifted the convention by 90 days and would continue negotiations with factional national chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff, who obtained the Abuja court order.
But reacting to the suspension, FFK on his Facebook page wrote: “When I warned our people about President Muhammadu Buhari and what he would do with power no-one listened.
“When I warned the PDP leadership and particularly our PDP governors about the dangers of making Ali Modu Sheriff National Chairman they would not listen.
“I also told them that the government would NOT allow the convention to hold because Sheriff is working for them.
“Now look at what they are doing in PH in collusion with some corrupt judges just to destabilise, destroy and silence the opposition.
“Governors put under house arrest. Convention venue sealed off. Delegates prevented from entering the stadium. It is shameful.
“Let me make another prediction: this is just the beginning of their tyranny. It will get far worse. That is “mai chanji” for you!
“The sooner the leaders of the PDP wake up, smell the coffee and appreciate the kind of monster they are dealing with and the sooner they elect and select leaders that are prepared to risk their lives and liberty to confront this government the better.
“If you want democracy and freedom you must be prepared to confront the dictator and fight for it.
“Where there is no justice, there can be no peace. Where there is no freedom, there can be no joy,” he added
