Femi Fani-Kayode, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against condemning Israel or joining “in any reckless adventure against the Jewish state.”
According to Fani-Kayode, who is a former minister of aviation, doing so will have serious consequences.
He also warned the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to leave Nigeria out of what he described as “jihad against Israel.”
Recall that Erdogan had on Friday, in phone conversation with Buhari, asked that Nigeria, as a member of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, stand with Palestine — another member of the organisation.
“President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke by phone with President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria. Exchanging Eid al-Fitr greetings, the two leaders discussed bilateral relations and regional developments,” the Turkish Presidency tweeted on Friday.
“Drawing attention to Turkey’s efforts exerted in order for the international community to teach the necessary lesson to unlawful, unjust and unscrupulous Israel due to its attacks against Palestine, President Erdogan voiced his belief that Nigeria would show solidarity with the Palestinians in this rightful cause,” it added.
In a series of tweets on Sunday, Fani-Kayode urged every Christian to stand with Israel, saying that there are over 100 million Nigerian Christians that love and revere Israel.
He said, “President Erdoghen of Turkey should leave Nigeria out of his jihad against Israel& his attempt to teach Israel a lesson. President Buhari would be wise not to condemn Israel or join in any reckless adventure against the Jewish state otherwise a terrible price will be paid.
“It is an article of faith for a every true Christian to stand with Israel. There are over 100 million Christians in this country who love & rever Israel. We pray for her every day & bless her. If we are forced to choose between the Arabs & the Jews we would choose the Jews.
“Israel can & will NEVER be defeated. If provoked she will bring all her enemies to their knees. We have enough problems of our own. Taking on the Jews would be an exercise in futility, would divide our country & would push us closer to greater conflict & possibly a civil war.
“Remember what happened in Lebanon in the 1980’s and 1990’s? God forbid it should happen here.
“A word is enough for the wise.”
