Former Aviation Minister Femi Fani-Kayode has seemingly repented of his previous comments about Nigeria’s Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.
This is happening at a time when notable politicians, businessmen, world leaders and families are celebrating with President Muhammadu Buhari as his son tied the knot with the love of his life.
Naija News reports that the wedding between Yusuf Buhari and Emir Ado Bayero’s daughter, Zahra held today (Friday), in Kano.
Joining the host of others at the affluent ceremony, FFK while giving an update about his trip to Kano alongside top politicians, described Pantami as his brother and friend.
It could be recalled that FFK a few months ago went hard on Pantami, describing him as a sociopath among many unprintable names.
Naija News reports that Fani-Kayode in April this year lampooned Pantami after the minister came under fire over his past controversial comments supporting Islamic terrorist group known as the Taliban.
FFK who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, labelled the communication minister with ‘humiliating’ terms for his extremist Salafist views and sympathy for the Taliban, currently on the rampage in Afghanistan.
In one of his publications about Pantami, FFK wrote: “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 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.”
However, Fani-Kayode barely four months after his comments about Pantami, has now described the same man as a friend and brother.
In the post on his social media page; FFK said: “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 that is steeped in tradition and history.
“It is a pleasure and a joy to be here. Will keep you posted.”
