Why I Made U-turn, Now Supporting Tinubu – Fani-Kayode
Femi Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has defended the same faith ticket of the party, insisting it is the choice of the presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Admitting that no real Christian would be pleased with such selection, the former PDP stalwart said he had prayed about it and that there was nothing wrong with the choice.
Fani-Kayode, who had before now spoken against the APC and Tinubu and even went ahead on many occasions to accuse the ruling party of plotting to islamize the country, said he was only against the APC because he was in the opposition PDP.
Appearing on Channels Television, Fani-Kayode said that when he joined APC, he discovered that many things have changed and that even the issue of fulanization had been thrown out of the window by the emergence of Bola Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the APC.
The APC chieftain also defended Kashim Shettima, the vice presidential candidate of the APC, saying that the former Borno State Governor had built more churches in the State than any other governor before him.
“My choice to speak for APC and Tinubu has nothing to do with morals. It’s a question of choice. It’s my choice. When I was in the PDP, I fought against those that were against my party. Now I’m no longer in the PDP and I’m in the APC, I’ll fight against those that are against my party,” Fani-Kayode said.
“That is my nature and I make these choices based on conviction and based on courage. The most important thing…the greatest danger to national unity and cohesion as far as I’m concerned…is a situation whereby power does not shift to the South after eight years of the Hausa/Fulani man ruling this country.
“And the APC has come up with a Southern candidate and that’s the most important thing. Now the choices that the Southern candidate makes are the choice he is comfortable with.
“Obviously, there are issues with the same faith ticket. There are issues with that. Any Christian that will tell you he is particularly happy with that then seriously speaking cannot be a real Christian.
