According to him, northerners will unleash mayhem on
Nigeria, which will result into heavy bloodbaths.
The PDP chieftain was reacting to a recent statement
by Minister of Information, Lai Mohammade that the
president will now attend to issues from home.
Fani, in an article entitled, “The ailing president and
looming conflagration in Nigeria, called on Nigerians to
pray for Buari’s health.
He wrote, “The truth is that we are sitting on a keg of
gunpowder in this country and I sincerely hope and pray
that the President’s health improves and some
measure of order, predictability, sanity, peace and
stability is restored.
“If this happens we will have the historic opportunity to
organise ourselves and vote the APC out in a peaceful
election in 2019 but if it does not and Buhari dies before
the end of his tenure, no-one in his right mind should
expect a smooth transition of power to the Vice
“This is because the cabal and Buhari’s hard-line
supporters and foot soldiers simply despise him and
will not allow it to happen.
“If the President dies whilst on the throne there will be
chaos, carnage and destruction on an unprecedented
and massive scale in our country because his core
northern support- base will unleash mayhem on Nigeria
and particularly on southerners and Christians that
reside in the north.
“What they fail to appreciate is that if that were to
happen there will be an equally massive and
unprecedented retaliation from the south and from the
people of the Middle Belt and Nigeria will not survive it.
“It is unfortunate that things have come to this but let
no-one make any mistake: the will of the south must
not be tested. We are ready for the very worse and
whether anyone likes it or not southern unity and
solidarity is on the rise.
He asked Nigerians not to forget the president in their
“We pray for our President: that God will forgive him of
his many sins, grant him good health and spare his life
but we also warn those that are planning to harm our
people to sheath their swords before they set off a
chain of events that will cause an unprecedented,
historic and massive conflagration on the African
continent, the likes of which have never been seen
before,” he added.
