Fani-Kayode blasts Governor Bello, Shittu over pro-Buhari comments


Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has lashed out at the Minister of Communications, Bayo Shittu and Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, over their recent remarks in support of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Fani-Kayode quoted their comments and labelled both men as “worthless and pitiful souls”.

He tweeted on Sunday: “‘Buhari has done more for Igbos and Yorubas than he has for northerners”- Bayo Shittu, Min. of Communications.

“‘Christians are angry with Buhari because they can no longer STEAL to pay tithe”-Yahaya Bello, Gov. of Kogi.

“How did we end up with such worthless and pitiful souls?”

Shittu claimed Buhari had done more for Igbo and Yoruba people than the House/Fulani in this administration. He said this when he fielded questions from Vanguard, where he also claimed that Presidents of other African countries are queuing up to have handshakes with Buhari because of his integrity.

Meanwhile, Governor Bello has denied insulting Catholic Bishops, stating that he would not do anything to disparage any religious organisation.

In a statement released on Saturday, he said the reports in the media that he disrespected the Catholic Community and its leaders was “another low by his detractors in their desperation to portray him as an irresponsible leader”.
