Mr Fawehinmi spoke at the unveiling of the new Gani Fawehinmi statue by the Lagos State Government at the Liberty Park, Ojota area of Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, marking Gani’s 80th Posthumous birthday celebration.

Muhammed who was so happy that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode remodelled his father’s statue, said he would like to laugh at the face of three people who made his father’s stay on earth uncomfortable. 

He mentioned the late dictator, Sani Abacha, IBB and Obasanjo, but said, unfortunately, Abacha was dead.

For the remaining two still living, Muhammed said, “I wait for their demise every day.” He said they were now old and deserved to die.

He said the Lagos State Government had continued to set the pace, saying that Ambode was the first governor to build such a gigantic statue in honour of his father, Gani Fawehinmi, while he acknowledged the one done by former Governor Babatunde Fashola which was smaller in size.

Muhammed appealed to the state government to scrap the Land Use Charge, LUC, and noted that he was not happy that Ambode shutdown Lagos the last time President Muhammadu Buhari came to Lagos.

According to him, Buhari had not made him happy, even though he voted for him and was the only military man that his father was close to.

He also lamented that the Buhari government seemed to value cows more than the lives of human beings in view of incessant herdsmen killings in the country.

The Lagos State government had erected a 44-ft tall statue to honour the legendary Gani Fawehinmi, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria. The statue which is one of its kind in the country is set to compete for a Guinness World record for the tallest indigenous statue.
