- Following a tweet by Femi Fani-Kayode asking Trump to tell Buhari to stop killing Christians and Shi'ite Muslims, APC has replied on behalf of the President
- According to APC, Buhari is not a killer of Christians and not a supporter of herdsmen
- Buhari is a defender of all Nigerians and their territories
The All Progressive Congress (APC) Youths Renaissance has spoken in defence of President Muhammadu Buhari who was recently accused by former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode.
APC Youths Renaissance in a statement released by Collins Edwin stated that the former minister was wrong and his statement asking Trump to advise President Buhari to stop killing Christians is unfortunate, Daily Post reports.
The statement reads: “We are using this medium to tell President Trump and the world that President Buhari is neither a killer of Christians nor supporter of herdsmen, but a lover of Christians and Muslims alike.
“He is as defender of all Nigerians and their territory as seen in the decimation of Boko Haram terrorists and the rescuing of 24 Chibok girls which President Trump testified during their phone conversation.
“It is however incongruous that while Nigerians are looking up to new level of bilateral relationships between Nigeria and the United States under President Trump, inglorious elements like Fani-Kayode are busy fanning their familiar embers of discord and acrimony.
“If we may ask, when did Fani-Kayode started recognising his Christian beliefs and has suddenly become a midnight christian activist when his alleged financial scams on whose account he is being tried in our courts have denied millions of Christians their daily breads and access to better life?
“To Fani-Kayode and other leeches who allegedly plundered our patrimonial wealth but are busy trying to create escape routes by whipping up religious and ethnic sentiments so that the country would be enmeshed in crisis, we say to them sorry, because Nigerians cannot be hoodwinked.”
Recall that President Buhari's media aide, Femi Adesina released a statement unbehalf of the Presidency explaining what President Trump discussed with President Buhari.
