Popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has described Femi Fani-Kayode as the ‘Judas of Oduduwa’ following his defection from the opposition party (PDP) to the All Progressive Congress (APC)
President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday formally welcomed the former Minister of Aviation to the APC.
Kayode was led into the President’s office by the Caretaker Chairman of the APC and Governor of Yobe , Mr Mai-Mala Buni as well as Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara.
In a Facebook post on Thursday, Gumi wrote: “I have for long, neglected the rantings of the Judas of Oduduwa attacking me knowing fully well that he is fake and a traitor.
“Time has now caught up with him and thanks to Allah, all his vituperations are cast in the dustbin of merciless history.
“It is him now, one wonders which of the seven circles of hell this duper will settle if he doesn’t repent.”
Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation under President Olusegun Obasanjo had in the past berated those fronting for bandits and terrorists in the country. He, however, did not mentioned names of those he suspected but his rhetorics pointed to Sheikh Gumi.
On joining APC, Fani-Kayode, however, said that he was moved by Holy Spirit to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the APC, pointing out that he was a founding member of the ruling party.
