Buhari, herdsmen are greatest supporters of Boko Haram, Fani-Kayode claims

With all the scandals, 'do you still believe Buhari is Mr. Clean and APC is a party of angels?'- Fani-Kayode

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has backed ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s claim that the Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, has plans to “Fulanise Nigeria and Islamise Africa”.

The former minister then described Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and Fulani herdsmen as the best and greatest supporters of the terrorists and their alleged evil agenda.

Obasanjo, during his keynote address on Saturday at the 2019 Synod of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), held in Oleh, Isoko South council area of Delta State, was reported to have made comments on Boko Haram and herdsmen crisis in Nigeria.

Fani-Kayode, in a tweet on his official Twitter handle had quoted Obasanjo as saying apparently at the event that “Boko Haram wants to Fulanise Nigeria and Islamise Africa.”

He then wrote as his response to the claim, “True. And Buhari and his Fulani herdsmen are their best friends and greatest supporters.

“I said all this in 2015 and no-one would listen. It is a pity that it has come to this.

“Botswana, Africa’s greatest success story, is the only ethnically homogenous country in sub-Saharan Africa.

“That speaks volumes. Oduduwa Republic here we come!”
