Its likely turning into a verbal war on the Nigerian politicians as each takes turn to release there verbal bomb on each other with there choice of individual. Since the inception of the Buhari administration and APC government, the PDP politicians have not seized to monitor the activities of the opposition party and make there comments when ever they see fault and as such, the APC politicians have not relent in giving back there own comments against the opposition hence the verbal war have continued to lingered among them.
The former minister of aviation Fani-Kayode have always been that one pdp politician whose name have not seized to appear in the pages of the Nigerian News Paper if not against Buhari it will be against the APC government together with his EKITI State counterpart Fayose. This time around is the turn of the IMO state governor Chief Rochas Okorocha who has described him as an “Over-pampered Child Who lacks Respect for elders” after Fani-Kayode described his visit to buhari on sunday as being fake.
In addition to the above comment, Fani-Kayode also questioned the paternity of the governor saying that the governors paternity is doubted even in his own state. Reacting to the statement, governor Rochas said that the statement is unwarranted, adding that the ex-minister lacks self-discipline and respect.
The statement reads in part, “And on our part, as responsible people, we had delayed in responding to Fani-Kayode’s attacks or hesitated to take issue with him because most Nigerians had, before now, doubted his intelligence quotient and have also called for certain clinical examinations.
“Again, there is obviously a very wide gulf between a man, who has succeeded in every segment of life through the dint of hard work and indeed, by God’s grace, and someone whose only claim in society or his only meal ticket is the late father’s name.
“And we also know that spoiled and over-pampered children do not know what it takes to have self-discipline and respect for others. They see everybody as ice-cream, tom-tom, yoghurt and indomie noddles. Hence they can abuse anybody not minding the gaps.
“Rochas Okorocha has succeeded in business, in politics, in education and as governor without brandishing any name except God. And he has always claimed that even his achievements as governor in six years have superseded or exceeded the achievements of all those who had governed the state before him put together; and has challenged anybody with contrary view to come forward so that they can compare notes.”
“The problem with Nigerian politics is that everybody is equal, and that is why a man, whose story in life begins and ends with the father’s and grandfather’s names, would be abusing someone, who began life as a street hawker and became a governor and a successful man both in business and in other areas of life. They are two different scenarios.
“One would have thought that the excruciating damage inflicted on Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party by this same guy would have humbled him. The Bible says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God that gives to all men and upbraids not and it shall be given him” (James 1:5).”
