Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has told the current Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, that he “needs a new brain”, after he gave reasons why the President Muhammadu Buhari-Federal Government, is flouting court orders regarding some high-profile cases.
Featuring on Osasu Show, Mohammed said the government was flouting court orders in the interest of national security .
“Every government will balance national security with human rights; every country in the world. It is the level of the balancing.
“As a government, I will balance national security against human rights; and then I will take a decision. Because there is security, there is stability, that the courts also exist.
“What I am saying (is) that the court has ruled but the court does not have the entire picture when it comes to national security. I am a lawyer too, therefore I have utmost respect for the judiciary,” Mohammed had said.
Fani-Kayode has now taken to his Twitter account to fire back at the Minister, saying this is not a military regime.
He wrote: “The assertion that govt. has the right to disobey court orders on grounds of nat. security is dangerous and false. Lie M. needs a new brain.
“He looks and sounds like a drunken monkey and garrulous chimpanzee when he says such things. This is a democracy and not a military regime!”
