A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Femi Fani-Kayode has alleged that Kebbi governor, Atiku Bagudu has withdrawn the police protection given to sacked former Chief Justice of the state, Asabe Karatu.
Fani-Kayode, who had lambasted Bagudu and his wife for the action after Karatu alleged that she was not confirmed because of her Christian faith expressed surprise at such treatment meted out to someone with 38-years experience in the civil service.
He further revealed that Zainab Bagudu the governor’s wife has invited him to Kebbi to see her cow after telling her he doesn’t need her attention.
See his statement below.
“Well spoken. When I raised this issue of great national importance she said that I should be ignored and that I am looking for attention. When I told her off and said that I am not interested in her attention and that I don’t do other peoples wives she invited me to Kebbi for a visit and said I should come and see her cows.
‘This is someone who I have known since she was 15 and someone whose father I revered. Instead of offering a plausible explanation for her husband’s shameful behaviour or calling me privately to put their side of the story she insulted me publicly.
“Well, I am not surprised. After all I am just a Christian. The attitude of these people amazes me.
“Meanwhile, I spoke to the former CJ Asabe Karatu at length and the story is even worse than the public is aware of. The Gov. is so vindictive that he has taken away all her police protection, her official vehicle that she is entitled to and all the other perks that are her due.
“He has also denied her of her full pension by refusing to confirm her and then sacking her. This is after 38 years of diligent and meritorious service in the states civil service and Judiciary. And all because she is Christian and she refused to be a puppet to Atiku Bagudu. What a tragedy!”
He, therefore, stated that the respect that can be given to the South West is to ensure that power returns to the region in 2023.
“The President and indeed our party must beware of divisive elements who are now proponents of retaining power in the north beyond 2023 . Power shift to the SW in 2023 is the best honour that can be bestowed on the late Chief MKO Abiola.
“The solution to our problems is not a power shift but restructuring or separation. Even if you shift power between the north and south for the next 100 years it means nothing. As long as some regard themselves as the master race and others as their slaves nothing will change. We are not interested in sharing power with the north: we are interested in winning our freedom from them.”
