Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the Federal Government’s statement condemning former President Olusegun Obasanjo for his recent statements on Boko Haram.
But reacting in a Tuesday statement, the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said that Obasanjo’s statement was deeply offensive and patently divisive.
He added, “Since the Boko Haram crisis, which had been simmering under the watch of Obasanjo, boiled over in 2009, the terrorist organisation has killed more Muslims than adherents of any other religion, blown up more mosques than any other houses of worship and is not known to have spared any victim on the basis of their ethnicity.
“It is therefore absurd to say that Boko Haram and its ISWAP variant have as their goal the ‘Fulanisation and Islamisation’ of Nigeria, West Africa or Africa.”
However, Fani-Kayode said that President Muhammadu Buhari and Alhaji Lai Mohammed had no justification for criticising Obasanjo over Boko Haram.
He stated this in a tweet while reacting to the Federal Government’s statement on Tuesday.
Fani-Kayode said, “Lai Mohammed and Muhammadu Buhari should be the last to talk about Boko Haram or attack OBJ for exposing their Fulanisation and Islamisation agenda.
“The same Mohammed once said it was wrong to ban Boko Haram and the same Buhari once said an attack on Boko Haram was an attack on the north!Who is fooling who?”
