A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode took to facebook on Saturday afternoon after the longtime former Cuban leader, Fidel Castro, died Friday at the age of 90.
In the statement, Fani-Kayode referred to Castro as a “a blessing to the oppressed people of the world and a friend to Africa” who “oppressed his own people”, Fani-Kayode said in the statement.
“I admired the defiant spirit, passion, strength, commitment and courage of Fidel Castro.
He was a blessing to the oppressed people of the world and a friend to Africa.
Under his leadership Cuba’s role in the struggle for black majority rule and the fight against apartheid in Zimbabwe and South Africa cannot be underestimated or downplayed.
He played a similar role in the bitter struggle against colonialism and neo-colonialism in Angola, Mozambique and Namibia.
He was a warrior to the core and a great leader. He was also a blessing to the Cuban people and they really loved him.
May the soul of this great titan rest in peace.”
