FFK defends ‘friend, brother’ comment after labelling Pantami ‘sociopathic Jihadist’..
Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode on Saturday defended his fond appellation of Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, after labelling the Islamic scholar a ‘sociopathic Jihadist’ some three months ago.
According to the ex-minister, politics is not war but about ‘bridge-building’.
In a post on Twitter, the controversial member of the Peoples Democratic Party said the fact that members of the opposition party attended the wedding of Yusuf, the son of the President Buhari showed that “you can be friends with your political adversary and still disagree.”
“Buba Galadima with Ahmad Lawan, GEJ (Goodluck Ebele Jonathan) with PMB, GEJ with VP (Yemi Osinbajo) & Atiku (Abubakar) with PMB. Politics is about bridge-building regardless of your differences. It is not war. You can be friends with your political adversary & still disagree. It’s called politics without bitterness & being civilised,” FFK captioned photos showing himself with Pantami, and other top members of PDP and the ruling All Progressives Congress.
