According to him, “Governments are meant to support and encourage their people and not discredit and undermine them”.
On his Twitter page, Fani-Kayode wrote: “Reduce the number of Nigerians you give visas”- FG….I have never seen a government that hates and despises its own people and treats them with as much contempt and disdain as Buhari’s.
