Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has urged the Nigerian government to learn something positive from Spain.
According to him, the people of Catalan in Spain have not been called terrorists, despite insisting on a referendum.
Fani-Kayode tweeted: “The people of Catalan in Spain are insisting on a referendum. Their leader says he will declare independence if the “yes” vote wins. The Spanish govt. refuses to recognise the process but they have NOT called the people of Catalan terrorists or sent in the army. LEARN FROM THIS!”
The Federal Government has gazetted the order of the Federal High Court in Abuja, which proscribed the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and declared it a terrorist group.
The FG, through the Central Authority Unit of the Federal Ministry of Justice, had commenced moves to notify banks, Nigerian embassies abroad and foreign missions operating in Nigeria from further relating with IPOB.
A five-page document was reportedly printed and published by the Federal Government Printer in Lagos on September 20, 2017. The document was signed by the AGF.
