Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has mocked President Muhammadu Buhari over an incident with pigeons in the course of the Armed Forces Remembrance Day ceremony on Friday.
As an indication of peace, the president normally releases some white pigeons from a cage and instantly they fly away.
However, this 12 months, the birds refused flying on Friday with most of them sticking to the cage.
The incident was greeted with combined reactions with many Nigerians, attributing the birds’ behaviour to dangerous luck and the absence of peace and unity within the nation.
Reacting to the incident, Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Celebration, PDP, described the incident as dangerous luck.
Sharing a video of the incident, the previous minister wrote on his Twitter deal with: “When the white doves of peace refuse to fly and when the white pigeons of the Villa fail to go away their cage it’s an ominous signal and a nasty omen.
“Buhari beware the ides of March.
“Even the pigeons refused to fly! What sort of dangerous luck does this man have?”
