A former Minister of Aviation , Femi Fani -Kayode, says he is not moved by the decision of the Muhammadu Buhari – led government to bar him from travelling.
Fani- Kayode said in a statement that his passport had been with the courts and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission since 2008, thereby making it impossible for him to travel .
The ex – minister, however , said he pitied those who needed medical attention but had also been placed on the list of 50 persons not allowed to travel .
He said, “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. ”
Fani- Kayode said Buhari had shown repeatedly that he was a “despot ” and would “do anything to muzzle the opposition in order to retain power .
