“He has said things straight from the gutters, things that the natural man would call unforgivable and unpardonable.“
The presidency has said that the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode had said unforgivable and unpardonable things against President Muhammadu Buhari prior to his (FFK) recent defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC).
President Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, in a statement, said Fani-Kayode has, however, received mercy and forgiveness from the Nigerian leader.
Fani-Kayode, who had on several occasions lashed out at President Buhari and the current APC administration, last week shocked Nigerians when he officially dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling party.
The former PDP chieftain was received into the APC by President Buhari.
The move has, however, triggered a backlash from concerned Nigerians as many lambasted FFK, describing his nature of politics as unstable.
But Adesina in the statement claimed that Buhari demonstrated the attribute of God by forgiving Fani-Kayode all his previous attacks.
The statement reads in part, “Between last week and now, vitriol poured by FFK on anybody with the slightest affinity to APC has been dug up serially.
“He has said things straight from the gutters, things that the natural man would call unforgivable and unpardonable.
“Against President Buhari, the first family, Yusuf Buhari whom he wished had died when the latter had an almost fatal bike accident, APC as a party, the government, leaders of the party, groups and individuals. Even this writer has suffered horrid descriptions from FFK in many write-ups.
“Buhari showed him mercy, dropping like gentle rain from heaven, when he could have otherwise spat into the sky, collecting the spittle with his own face. Was that not what me and you would have done? Confess.
“We would have told FFK to go to hell, and stay there. But Buhari didn’t. He displayed an attribute of God: forgiveness”.
