Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has again condemned Nigeria’s Minister of Communication, Isa Pantami and renowned Islamic scholar, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi.
Naija News reports that Nigerians had called on the Buhari govt to sack Isa Pantami for backing terrorism some years back.
But the presidency on Thursday vowed not to sack Isa Pantami while insisting that the minister has apologized for his views on Boko Haram, Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
Gumi had warned against the sacking of the minister, saying that Nigeria will regret it if Pantami is sacked by Buhari.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter handle on Wednesday, Fani-Kayode stated that Nigeria is not being governed by a democracy, stressing that this is a rulership of Janjaweed.
He said those that believe that they are the owners of Nigeria do not see the country as a modern-day 21st century secular state but rather as a conquered territory.
Fani-Kayode wrote: “I will not mention names but when a Salafist terrorist who says he loves Al Qaeda & the Taliban, who says Osama Bin Ladin was a better Muslim than him, who says he is happy when “unbelievers” are killed, who says he will lead Muslims into Christian areas as their “commander” & avenge their deaths & who hates Christians & non-Muslims with a passion continues to occupy a critical & sensitive position in Govt. even after millions of Nigerians have demanded for his removal or resignation you know we are heading for the rocks.
“Again when a supposedly respected Islamic cleric who acts as a front& go-between for foreign Fulani bandits & terrorists, who facilitate the payment of ransoms to them& who loves& constantly defends them tells us that if that man is removed from Govt. we will “regret it” we can comfortably conclude that our country is under the power & influence of a bunch of murderous & heartless jihadists.
“This is not a democracy. It is the rulership of the Janjaweed. It is the manifestation of an ancient agenda & the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy.
“Those that believe that they are the owners of Nigeria do not see our country as a modern-day 21st-century secular state but rather as a conquered territory which is in the process of being transformed into a full-fledged Islamic & Fulanised state in which Christians, non-Muslims, non-Fulanis & moderate Muslims will be rendered useless & worthless & will become willing slaves, pitiful beggars & wretched serfs.
“Millions of us would rather die than accept such an arrangement & we will fight to the last man to resist it.
“We have nowhere to go or run. Will will stand our ground, hold the line, build up our defences & guard our space for the sake of future generations.
“We are either all equal before God & the law or we will end this godless, unequal & unholy union. We will either build a new.
“Nigeria in which everyone is regarded as a human being with rights & dignity or we will have no Nigeria at all. We stand at the gates in the name of the God & take a solemn oath that those that seek to destroy and enslave us shall not shall NOT have their way & shall not pass!”
