The British deputy high commissioner to Nigeria, Ben Llewellyn-Jones, has received criticism from Femi Fani-Kayode, a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for a remark made against him.
On Sunday, Fani-Kayode was criticized by the UK Envoy for allegedly making incendiary remarks on social media.
In an interview with Nigeria Info FM on Sunday, Llewellyn-Jones raised concern over the potential effects of the former minister of aviation’s disparaging remarks against opposition parties.
In response, FFK advised the UK representative to stay out of Nigeria’s affairs in a tweet posted on his Twitter account, claiming that the nation is no longer their colony.
The former minister claimed that the UK envoy’s favored candidate lost the recently held presidential elections.
As the Deputy High Commissioner of the UK to Nigeria, he wrote, “I would encourage this Ben to keep his dirty nose out of our internal matters.
“I am aware that his favorite candidate did not prevail in the presidential election, but that does not excuse him from acting inappropriately toward us in this situation. Who the hell does he think he is, I wonder?”
