Oh dear! Femi Fani Kayode has written an open letter to Yemi
Osinbajo who has been picked as Buhari’s running mate in 2015. According to Mr
Fani, Yemi Osinbajo is a well-educated man who shouldn’t be in the same party with the
likes of Buhari, talk less of being his running mate in the presidential race.
What has light got to do with darkness? These and many more where the questions
Fani asked Osinbajo in this open letter. Please read after the cut.
the wisdom in not fielding a muslim/muslim ticket for the 2015 Presidential
election even though I hear that, right up till the last minute, they almost
on his nomination as the Vice Presidential candidate of the APC and running
mate to General Muhammadu Buhari.
he is not only a very pleasant and civilised person with a warm and gentle
disposition but he is also a cerebal lawyer with a brilliant mind. I have
immense respect for him.
announcement as Buhari’s running mate I have felt nothing but sheer pity for
him and a deep sense of pathos. My counsel and words for him are as follows:
darkness and that seek to thwart the counsel of God for their nation by joining
hands with the sons of Boko and the daughters of Haram.
darkness?” It says ”what does God have to do with Belial?” It says ”what
profiteth a man to gain the world and lose his soul?”.
a devout and committed Christian and an intellectually-sound, well-bred and
well educated Professor of Law accepts to be running mate to a closet fundamentalist,
a bloodthirsty, cruel and murderous military dictator and a die-hard believer
in the philosophy of ”born to rule”? This is serious.
Rev. Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church Of
God has jumped into bed with one of the most notorious troublers of the faith
and one of the most consistent enemies of democracy and Nigeria? This is very
most respected generals on the planet and one of the Church’s most humble and
best-loved precious gems, yet one of his spiritual sons has surely let him, and
indeed the Kingdom of God, down by choosing to play ”man Friday” and second
fiddle to an individual that represents everything that is troubling,
unsettling and repugnant to the modern world and to the 21st century? What a
Nigerian bar who is the leading authority on the law of evidence and who has
written numerous books on that topic chooses to play number two to a man that
failed all his exams at military college and that never went to a decent school
or to any university? Jumping Jehoshaphat.
Yemi. Look at what the Haramites have done to him and look at what they have
reduced him to. Is there anything that these creatures from hell will not do?
that they will not defile, pervert, debase, violate and corrupt in their
ignoble quest for power and as a consequence of their insatiable lusts and
friend Yemi, will ultimately have to answer to God for the choices that we make
and we must live with the consequences of those choices.
has disassociated itself from a false claim that the Church and, by
implication, Rev. Adegboye himself, was supporting the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket.
categorically that this is not so. One can always trust Adegboye to do and say
the right thing because he is a man that is truly ”after God’s heart”.
Church is just the first of many shockers and unwelcome surprises that Yemi
will be served with in the next few weeks. He will get shock after shock and
surprise after surprise until the battle is over and circumstances compel him to
go back to his very lucrative legal practice.
one of his esteemed colleagues and yet another Pastor of the Redeemed Christian
Church of God, the courageous Pastor Bosun Emmanuel. Bosun said the following
words in his famous sermon titled ‘The Nigerian Church’ which went viral just a
few months ago.
enemies of God in an attempt to bury the Church and destroy the gospel”. This
was a timely admonition and these are strong and wise words from a true servant
of God who is under no illusion about what is going on in the politics of
Nigeria and who is brave enough to say it as it is.
absolutely certain of one thing: those that have aligned with the servants of
satan and the children of darkness and that seek to thwart God’s counsel for
our nation shall not prevail.
18th and they killed no less than 52 innocent people. Despite that some people
are still supporting Buhari and his army of desperate Haramites? What a people,
what a country.
chose a Pastor as his running mate are ignorant. Did he not have a Pastor as
his running mate in his last outing in 2011? Did he not still say that it was
his intention to ”spread sharia throughout the country” and that ”an attack
on Boko Haram is an attack on the north”?
states and say that it was unfair for the military to kill Boko Haram members?
Did he not say that instead of killing them they should forgive them, pamper them
and treat them in the same way that the Niger Delta militants were treated?
that the proscription of Boko Haram by the Federal Government was ‘’unjust’’
and ‘’unconstitutional’’? How does the fact that Buhari has opted for a
Christian running mate change any of these things?
because he was compelled to do so as a consequence of the hue and cry that the
prospect of a muslim/muslim ticket had already started to generate.
mate as evidence of his new-found love for Christians aware of the fact that
during the American civil war a small, ignorant, misguided and deluded group of
negro slaves actually fought on the side of the southern confederate forces in
an attempt to keep slavery in place?
confederate ‘’secession’’ states suddenly changed their minds and fell in love
with the blacks that they had enslaved and treated like animals?
hausa-fulani tribe not a little far-fetched? Did he not lead a northern
delegation to Alhaji Lam Adesina, the late Governor of Oyo state, just a few
years ago when some Fulani herdsmen were slaughtering Yoruba farmers on their
own land and ask him ‘’why are YOUR people killing MY people?’’
invaded the land and farms of others and that killed all the occupants had a
right to do so simply because they were fulani. Yet some people still claim
that the man is not a tribalist.
in this context it is not only terrible but also very dangerous. Buhari’s choice
of a Christian Pastor as his running mate means nothing and changes nothing
about him or his entrenched views and ancient mindset.
to win power at all costs and it is a reflection of his obvious and deep-seated
deceit. Let the truth be told even though the heavens may fall: Christian Vice
President or no Christian Vice President, Buhari’s heart remains as dark as
