Burning fires of hell await Christian leaders who support Buhari over Obasanjo – Fani Kayode

Published

Twitter pundit and former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode, has said that Christian leaders who support President Muhammadu Buhari over Chief Olusegun Obasanjo are pagans, goblins, vampires, werewolves, sorcerers and orcs.

The controversial Peoples Democratic Party’s chieftain who is a staunch critic of the president said these clerics are lost souls and “hell awaits them.”

FFK made these statements while reacting to Femi Adesina’s earlier post stating that “Christian leaders that support OBJ and oppose Buhari are “false prophets, witches, wizards and marabouts”.

Fani-Kayode’s tweet reads;

“Femi Adesina says Christian leaders that support OBJ and oppose Buhari are “false prophets, witches, wizards and marabouts”.

This is false.

The truth is that Christian leaders that support Buhari against OBJ are pagans, goblins, vampires, werewolves, sorcerers and orcs.

They are lost souls, satan’s disciples and the devil’s spawn. The burning fires of hell await them.”

Recall that Adesina, the special adviser on media and publicity to the president had mocked Obasanjo, Atikulators and political “enemies” who had gone both “physical and spiritual” and engaged in a fierce campaign of calumny to discredit his principal.

In an article entitled, “PMB’s second term: Ain’t no stopping us now, we’re on the move Adesina said “the sluice gates of free funds had been slammed shut, and they were unhappy. As dolorous as King Lear at his worst”.

The article continues in part;

“The man came back as a reformed Democrat. He sought to be president in 2003, 2007, and 2011. But those in mortal fear of righteousness in high places banded together, and stopped him. The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had perfected the art of elections manipulation, and they used it to the hilt.

However, in 2015, there ain’t no more stopping Buhari. A massive coalition for change was built around him, and good Nigerians stood up for the champion. Did he live happily ever after? Not on your lives! The adversaries went after him. Ran, pursued and attempted to overtake. All sorts of things, physical and spiritual, were thrown at him, just to get rid of the man who would not steal, and not allow people to steal.

A debilitating illness came. And for most of 2017, the President was receiving medical attention, both at home and abroad. Instead of goodwill and prayers, they were rejoicing. We’ve finally stopped him, they gloated. But did they? Could they? Not if God was still alive.

Ain’t no stopping Buhari, as in August 2017, he got back his groove. His health rebounded, and he resumed work fully.

But would Pharaoh desist from pursuing Israel? No. He was destined to perish in a watery grave, so he pursued Israel into the sea. They formed what they called a coalition, vowing that they would stop Buhari from winning the 2019 elections. This was after letters had flown around from the master letter writer, virtually commanding the President to dismount from the horse. That letter writer thinks he’s the landlord of Nigeria, as anybody he moved against never survived. He felt he could enthrone and dethrone leaders at will. But the Yoruba people say it’s the day that the witch kills twins that she stops eating meat. The letter writer bit more than he could chew, and it stuck in his throat. He formed a political coalition, it collapsed right in his face. He first adopted a political party to use in his bid to unseat the incumbent, then in act of utter confusion, he abandoned that new party, and went for candidate of the PDP.

The same man he had spent the past 10 years destroying, writing volumes and volumes of verbiage against, he now attempted to sell to Nigerians. Were we fools?

See the grand conspiracy by those who called themselves ‘Atikulators.’ They included former presidents, some retired military top brass, disgruntled senior civil servants, business people, preachers, and the elite, generally. The sluice gates of free funds had been slammed shut, and they were unhappy. As dolorous as King Lear at his worst.

The letter writer mobilized the international community, feeding them with misinformation and disinformation. Fulanization. Islamization, and other creepy concoctions. He was already addressing the PDP candidate as “my incoming President.” Oh, how so very easy to build castles in the air!

Marabouts, witches, wizards, and false prophets masquerading as pastors, bishops, and archbishops also joined the fray. They began to spew falsehood, which they attributed to God. He that sits in Heaven just laughed at them, and held them in utter derision.

All those who were on the wrong side of the law joined the conspiracy. Ex-this, ex-that, who had abused their offices, and were being made to answer questions, crept under the umbrella. They knew if their man won, their cases would die natural deaths. So, for them, it was a matter of life and death…”

Onoja, who influenced the donation in collaboration with his friends and associates, said the donation would go a long way to support the graduating awardees.

He extolled the founder of the foundation, late Prof. Francis Idachaba, for initiating the scholarship program in the year 2000, saying it was the right choice that had been yielding tangible results since then.

”In life, you need to sow the seed to reap the harvest that generations will benefit from.

“I urge us all to continue to sow good seed because nature has a way of paying us back; there is power in seed sowing,” Onoja said.

The deputy governor, who is also a member, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the foundation, commended the awardees for their commitment to having graduated with First class, saying it was not easy.

”When you see such people with First Class Degree, we need to encourage them so that others coming behind can also be encouraged to try their best.

”I want to believe that some of you will be global players in your different fields. I encourage you to pursue your dreams,” he advised.

Onoja urged the awardees not look at the amount, but to utilize it wisely and make the foundation and people of Igala Kingdom proud.

He promised, on behalf of all the donors, to continue to improve on the scholarship so that more people would benefit and build a good legacy.

”Congratulations once again on behalf of his Excellency, Gov. Yahaya Bello, who is also a donor.

“The exercise is a proof of unity across the different tribes of Kogi,” Onoja said.

Earlier, the Executive Director of the foundation, Prof. Joseph Omada, said that the group had over the years been given scholarships to best students at basic, secondary, and tertiary levels.

Omada said the scholarship, which used to be N70, 000 per awardee, was raised to N500, 000 by the deputy governor during the Igala Education Summit held in 2019.

He, therefore, commended the deputy governor for fulfilling his promise and for influencing other donors to ensure that the needed fund was raised for the scholarship.

”This is not politics; it is encouraging the students of Igala to be serious with their academics and come out with good grades,” he said.

Also, Mr. Wemi Jones, the Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology, lauded the foundation for the gesture, saying it worth emulation.

Jones urged the awardees to utilize the opportunity and be a good ambassador of the Igala Kingdom and the state at large.

Speaking on behalf of the awardees, Mr. Dominic Iko-Ojo, thanked the foundation, the deputy governor, and all other donors for encouraging and motivating them through the scholarship.

Banditry: Gov. Matawalle advocates N/West security committee

Published

on

Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara on Tuesday advocated for a NorthWest Security and Peace Committee to address the security challenges of the region.
Matawalle made the call in Gusau while presenting 200 new operational vehicles to various security agencies in the state.
“I recently wrote to Mr President to offer our suggestion on the need to form a North West Security and Peace Committee to effectively handle the intractable security challenges bedevilling the sub-region over the years,” he said.
The governor said the need for the regional security committee was informed by his state experience within the last one year of peacebuilding through dialogue and reconciliation.
“The need for the committee is underscored by the fact that the Northwestern states of Sokoto, Kebbi, Zamfara, Katsina as well as  Kaduna and Niger in the North-central share common borders and have forested areas sprawling across these borders.
“This allows for free interstate movements of bandits and causing damage to people’s lives and properties.
“The setbacks suffered by our peace process, which was gaining traction, is partly a result of this interstate movement of bandits.
“It is only through a united approach by all the affected states that we can effectively root out banditry in the subregion,” Matawalle said.
The governor announced plans to organize a joint security collaboration with the neighboring states of Kaduna, Kebbi, Sokoto, Niger, and Katsina in order to block the existing porous borders so as to impede infiltration of miscreants or armed bandits into the state.
The Newsmen reports that the 200 new vehicles fully fitted with communication gadgets were presented to the Lt-Gen. Tukur Burutai, the Chief of Army Staff (COAD).
Burutai was represented by the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 3 Division of the Nigerian Army, Jos, Maj.-Gen. Nuhu Angbazo.
The COAS thanked the governor for providing the vehicles, saying they will facilitate the fight against crime in the state.
NAN also reports that the vehicles would be distributed to the Nigeria Police, Army, Air Force, Civil Defence Corps, Nigeria Immigration Service, Nigeria Correctional Service.
Others include the Federal Road Safety Corps, the Joint Task Force of Operation Hadarin Daji, Hisbah Commission, Zamfara Road Traffic Agency (ZAROTA) and EFCC Sokoto Zone.
