Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose and former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK) have reacted to the fake Martin Luther King Award received by president Buhari in Abuja few days ago.
The presidency had announced on Twitter: “President @MBuhari today at the State House received Martin Luther King Jnr’s family. He was also conferred with the 1st Black History Month National Black Excellence and Exceptional African Leadership Award 2018. #AsoVillaToday”.
However, the children of Martin Luther King and the King Center have denied issuing the award to Buhari.
In a tweet on Wednesday, The King Center said: “The award given to President Buhari of Nigeria was not given by The King Center, at the request of The King Center or by the children of #MLK and #CorettaScottKing. @MrFixNigeria.”
Reacting to the latest development, Governor Fayose posted on Twitter by drawing the attention of Nigerians to how he once busted the lie of Buhari having an interview in the UK in 2015 whereas the interview was carried out in Abuja.
”Why using the name of Martin Luther King to lie? But I’m not surprised. Nigerians should remember how they lied that Buhari had an interview with the CEO,All Eyes on Africa TV Show, Kemi Fadojutimi in UK on Feb 20, 2015, whereas,the interview was held in Transcorp Hotel, Abuja”, he said.
Reacting to the development, FFK decided to label as scam the bus terminal which Buhari is currently in Lagos to commission.
”First came the Dapchi scam.Then came the Martin Luther King award scam.And now comes the bus terminal scam in which Lagos,the largest city in Africa,is under lockdown and all roads blocked simply because Pres. Muhammadu Buhari is coming to open a BUS TERMINAL! God save Nigeria”, he said.
