'Biafra, Buhari and the 'Soft' civil war' - Femi Fani Kayode

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to Vice President (VP) Yemi Osinbajo’s statement that he never begged to be made VP and that he could leave the office at anytime.

Fani-Kayode said that Osinbajo should go ahead and resign so that somebody ready to defend Christians from “mass murder, ethnic cleansing and genocide” can take his place, adding that Christians are not cowards.

Osinbajo had when he was asked to exonerate himself from President Muhammadu Buhari’s alleged islamisation agenda during a stakeholders’ meeting held at the new Banquet Hall of the Benue State Government House, Makurdi, said, “Let me assure you that under no circumstances, none whatsoever, will I give up my (Christian) faith or refuse to stand up for my faith.

“You can take that to the bank. Even the position that I currently occupy, I did not ask for it and I’m prepared to leave it at a short notice. It doesn’t mean anything.”

He then said, “In the name of Jesus resign and let another, who is prepared to defend the honor of the Church and protect Christians from mass murder, ethnic cleansing and genocide take your place. Christians are not cowards!”
