Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has expressed his disappointment following Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo’s persistent silence on the killing of some Christians in Nigeria.
Fani-Kayode stated that the refusal of Osinbajo to speak against the incidents and protect his own people from what he tagged as ‘sneaky dirty rats’ was very pathetic.
The controversial writer-cum-orator, who was reacting to the Monday’s interrogation of the Senior Pastor of Omega Fire Ministry, Apostle Johnson Suleman faulted Osinbajo for refusing to condemn the genocide that was being perpetrated by the Fulani militias on Christians across the country.
In the concluding part of his article entitled ‘the travails of Apostle Johnson Suleman and the inciting words of the Sultan Of Sokoto, Fani said if the killing continued, the Christian community would have no choice but resort to self-defence.
He wrote, “Our Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, who is undoubtedly a fine gentleman and who is a practising Pentecostal Christian, appears to be helpless and has done absolutely nothing to help and protect his own from the “sneaky dirty rats”.
“Clearly he has no power and he does not have the disposition or the political will and clout to take a stand against this great evil.
“The best he could do was to issue a tepid statement telling Nigerian religious and political leaders not to allow religion to drive us apart.
“He did not condemn the genocide that was being perpetrated by the Fulani militias and neither did he commiserate with the families of those that were butchered or express regret about the inability of the Federal Government to prevent the carnage,” he added.
Fano-Kayode added that despite the killings and persecutions of Christian, it would not deter them from remaining steadfast and strong in faith.
“Not even one hundred million inciting words from the Sultan of Sokoto or anyone else can change that,” he said
