Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, on Wednesday reacted to the alleged rumour that candidates participating in the ongoing recruitment into the force wrote examination in Arabic.

In a tweet, the former Minister stressed that Nigerians are not Arab, hence “this madness must stop.”

The tweet reads, “Arabic words on our bank notes. Arabic inscriptions on our Army’s coat of arms. Arabic language part of the Police CBT examination.

 “What is going on? Is Nigeria an Arab colony or Saudi Arabia? Are all Nigerians Muslims? Must we bow to the Arabs too? This madness must stop.”
