Buhari’s Wedding: Three Months Later, FFK Says Pantami Is His Friend by bkool7(m): 2:22am On Aug 21, 2021
The ancient city of Kano is bubbling at the moment with politicians, government officials, and cronies of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), as his son, Yusuf, marries Zahra, daughter of the Emir of Bichi, Nasiru Ado Bayero.

As expected at such a society wedding, the display of raw opulence and the presence of top members of the ruling All Progressives Congress including governors dominate the spectacle.

However, what many may never have anticipated was the conspicuous presence of a controversial member of the Peoples Democratic Party, Femi Fani-Kayode, who hobnobbed with Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, whom he once described with unprintable names.

In photos shared on his Facebook page on Thursday, Fani-Kayode disclosed that he flew into Kano yesterday, a day before the wedding ceremony.


Fani-Kayode, Nigeria’s Minister of Aviation from November 2006 to May 2007, also grinned sheepishly as he posed in photos with APC members, governors and ministers including Pantami, whom he suddenly described as his “friend and brother”.

“Flew into Kano with my friends and brothers Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state, Governor Babagana Umar Zulum of Borno State, Senator Sani Ahmed Yarima, Senator Ali Ndume, Ambassador Bashir Yuguda, Hon. Minister Isa Pantami, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu and others for the wedding ceremony of President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf Buhari, to HRH Nasiru Ado Bayero, the Emir of Bichi’s daughter, Zahra Ado Bayero.

“The flight was great and we thank God for journey mercies. Kano is a massive, pulsating city which is steeped in tradition and history.

“It is a pleasure and a joy to be here. Will keep you posted,” FFK wrote on Facebook.
The ex-minister’s fond appellation was a sharp contrast to what he had labelled Pantami in a piece in April. Fani-Kayode had lampooned Pantami, a member of the presidential cabinet from Gombe State, for his extremist Salafist views and sympathy for the Taliban, currently on the rampage in faraway Asia, precisely in Afghanistan. “Simply put, Pantami is a homicidal, sociopathic and psychotic individual…Who is a hater of Christians and non-Muslims. He is a religious bigot, an ethnic supremacist, an unrepentant jihadist, a lover of bloodshed, carnage and terror and a psychopathic and clearly insane individual who may well have been responsible for the slaughter of many innocent Christians over the years as a consequence of his inflammatory rhetoric and reckless actions, ” Fani-Kayode had stated in the piece he authored in April when Pantami came under fire over his past controversial comments supporting Sunni Islamic terrorist group known as the Taliban.

A former lecturer at the Kaduna State University, Kaduna, Prof Samuel Achi, had told The PUNCH that Pantami was the Chief Imam at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University mosque in Bauchi State in 2004 when the Muslim community issued a fatwa on his son, Sunday.

According to the don, his son, a Christian fellowship leader on campus, was later killed in the middle of the night inside the ATBU mosque over allegations that he circulated a tract that contained blasphemous content.

In one of his sermons in the 2000s, Pantami had reportedly prayed, saying, “This jihad is an obligation for every single believer, especially in Nigeria… Oh God, give victory to the Taliban and to al-Qaeda.”

The minister later recanted in April, saying he now knows better.

This guy is a shit from a w.hore..lol. How he got as many as those followers he got used to beat me, then i realized. A great number of Nigerians have a similar way of life as him. They belong here and they belong there so long there's something for them to swallow, to put in the pocket, and most importantly to show-off on their social media.

Gullible followers@bolded....any past & present politician can't be trusted reason one mustn't give any personal credence to what they say in public....even the ones seen as discipline like Fashola the minister of works proved that non of them can be trusted going by his recent antecedents during the EndSars Camcorder saga that gave him his new alias Fashola Holmes...

MoIbrahim:


I stopped respecting Fashola when I discovered that he was among the governors that passed laws to legalise the fraudulent retirement benefits for ex-governors and deputies in their states.





This is a major difference between Nigerians and others. We claim to be resilient but cannot stay to build our nation. Our first reaction to every difficulty in our country is often to run away in droves to other countries that were built by citizens that stayed to fight back bad leadership without running away. What is the use of the resilience that cannot be used to fix your own fatherlander, except to be used to device escape means to other countries?
In fixing Nigeria been outside the shores doesn't stop ones contribution towards such it's just that most Nigerians tend to feel unperturbed once they are in a little comfort!
I have over 20 concerned and patriotic Nigerians that are actively involved in LGA development though they reside outside Nigeria.
We are a nation with smart people but the main issue is leadership which we must take very seriously come 2023!


WE NEED YOUNG VISIONARY LEADERS IN NIGERIA!
youngblaq:


We are not likely to have them anytime soon. Is it not obviously part of their calculations?
Our people, none can be trusted. They will give us away. And this evil is meant to stay for sometime.
Your comment above lack credence...in life one of the best way to keep improving is to always keep a positive mindset for progress....no one ever believed a time as that of EndSars Protests will ever occur to put an end to the unscrupulous heinous killing of young people by the Sars division of the NPF....
Be guided.

Buhari has tried ooo angry
He has turned several former politicians into bloggers. Imagine ffk running commentary on a wedding ceremony.

Other politicians turned bloggers are Sani, Dino, Timi, and former gej aide Omokri among others.
