A former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode said he was not moved by the travel ban placed on him by the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari.
Fani-Kayode was reacting because his name appeared on the list.
Buhari had taken advantage of the judiciary affirmation of the constitutionality and the legality of the Executive Order 6 (EO6) to place about 50 high profile persons on a watch list.
The President mandated the Attorney-General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice to implement the Order on Saturday in full service.
In a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Garba Shehu, all assets within a minimum value of N50 million or equivalent, subject to investigation or litigation are protected from dissipation by employing all available lawful means.
Fani-Kayode in his reaction said he is no longer surprised by Buhari’s actions, adding that he has not travelled out of Nigeria since 2008 since the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) seized his passport.
“I could not give a damn that my name is on the list of 50 members of the opposition and prominent Nigerians that have been placed on a travel ban because nothing that Buhari does surprises me.
“I have not left Nigeria since 2008 because my passport has been with the EFCC and the courts for the last 10 years and they have refused to give it to me and allow me to travel.
“Those on the travel-ban list that need to travel abroad for medical attention or to see their loved ones are the ones I feel sorry for.
“For me, travel ban or no travel ban, I have no intention of leaving Nigeria anytime soon because I am one of those that will be on the forefront in the struggle to liberate our country and ensure that we get Buhari out of power in the next few months.
“By Gods grace, in February we will flush him and his incompetent, fascistic, mendacious, divisive, corrupt, abusive, vicious and genocidal government down the toilet and send them back to hell where they belong.2
