Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has congratulated Dr. Festus Adedayo, who was appointed as Special Adviser on Media to Senate President Ahmed Lawan and sacked barely two days later.
The controversial ex-minister took to Twitter on Thursday evening to congratulate Adedayo.
Recall that Lawan’s office said on Thursday that it “reviewed” Adedayo’s appointment and decided to let him go after announcing the appointment on Tuesday.
Lawan was said to have come under pressure from stakeholders in the All Progressives Congress (APC) to drop Adedayo.
Shortly after the appointment of Adedayo, a PhD holder in Political Communication, the social media was agog with the outcry that he is an “anti-Buhari media personality’’.
Some supporters of the party also took to the streets of Abuja to protest the appointment.
Reacting, Fani-Kayode said working for any branch of the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government was tantamount to serving Hitler’s Nazis, adding that Adedayo was spared falling “under their evil spell”.
He said, “Serving any branch of the APC government is like serving Hitler’s Nazis.
“God just delivered Festus Adedayo from the greatest calamity that could have possibly blighted and afflicted his brilliant and extraordinary life and career.
“He did not eat the King’s foul meat and he did not fall under their evil spell.
“He should do thanksgiving in his Church and he should bless his Pastor with a massive offering.
“He may not know what God has just delivered and saved him from but one day he will appreciate it. I thank God for his beautiful life.”
