The Progressive Lawyers for Osinbajo, a group of legal practitioners, has criticised Femi Fani-Kayode, former minister of aviation, over his recent article on Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

In a statement on Monday, the group accused Fani-Kayode of recanting his advocacy against the Muslim-Muslim ticket, adding that the former minister had kicked against such ticket in the past.

In a recent article titled ‘Yemi Osinbajo, Bola Tinubu and Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral’, Fani-Kayode had called on Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to support the ambition of Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the APC.

The former minister had also said Osinbajo should support Tinubu since the latter is a “mentor and benefactor” to the vice-president.

Speaking on the article in a statement on Monday, the group said Fani-Kayode’s attempts to credit Osinbajo’s successes to Tinubu were misleading.

“As against the uninformed thought of FFK, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo came from an enviable pedigree, his life records are open to the public; they are not questionable, including having served as Special Adviser to the Attorney-General of the Federation in 1988,” the group’s statement reads.

“Fani-Kayode is now talking about Absalom, but what about him completely denying and betraying his own faith. Is that not a worse story of Judas?

 “We don’t now know which version of FFK to believe or which is the real or fake. This is what social duplicity means and the unstable public commentator called Fani-Kayode is the best expression of a political chameleon. We demand he apologises to Nigerians for his crooked manifestation of tomfoolery.

“This is a trait that FFK has prepared to fail in his assignment as director in the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.

“That article was in no form a special and well thought-out project. It is simply to brew intraparty rancour that can destroy the chances of the party in the 2023 presidential election.”
