In his latest demagogic outbursts, former Aviation Minister Femi Fani Kayode, is at his incendiary best, appealing to Christian emotions to gain cheap popularity and sympathy to blackmail the government. The war against corruption is not about Islam vs Christianity. It is about corruption and accountability. If you think you’re being persecuted or witch-hunted, your best defence is your innocence. Don’t however drag Christianity into your personal battle to defend corruption charges. Is Sambo Dasuki left alone because he a Muslim? Demagogues seek to arrest our intelligence by the manipulation of our ignorance and prejudices.
Meanwhile, the following is an extract of Fani Kayode’s article published by the Vanguard newspaper:
“I have no doubt in my mind that this is the time to speak out because we are not only in a time of great moral crisis in our country but we are also facing persecution and wholesale tyranny.
I am making this contribution not out of fear for the plight of the Christendom in Nigeria because I know that, as the Holy Bible says, “the gates of hell cannot prevail against the Church”. It also says “He who watches over Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps”.
It follows that no matter what the enemies of the gospel throw our way, including one million President Buharis, at the end of the day we shall prevail.
I am making this contribution not out of fear or to divide our nation but rather in an attempt to inform the Nigerian people and the world about what is really going on in President Buhari’s Nigeria.
What many fail to appreciate is that the Church and the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ was built and spread by the blood and the bones of the Christian martyrs.
It follows that the more you persecute, jail and kill Christians and the more you subject them to terror, shame, insensitivity and humiliation, the more the Church grows.”
