Fani Kayode berates Tinubu, says bragging an ‘affront to God’

Femi Fani Kayode, ex-minister of aviation under former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has mocked the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential aspirant and national leader of the party, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, over Tinubu’s outburst in Ogun State on Thursday.
Posting the picture of the former Lagos State governor on his verified Facebook page, Kayode wrote that only God has the power over what one can become, and that it is a confrontation to God for one to brag over “making” another person.

He wrote, “God alone is God. He alone gives power. He alone takes the glory for who or what we are or become tomorrow. When a mere mortal says “I made you” it is an affront to God, a stench to His nostrils and a challenge to His sovereignty. Mind what you say lest He chooses to humble you.”

While addressing APC delegates in Abeokuta on Thursday, Tinubu had boasted that he made Dapo Abiodun the governor of Ogun State in 2019.

Tinubu who was apparently dissatisfied with Abiodun’s open endorsement of the presidential aspiration of the vice president Yemi Osinbajo, said Abiodun couldn’t have become governor without him.

He said, ”It has been over 25 years now that I have been serving them. This one sitting behind me, Dapo, can he say he can be the Governor without me? We were together at the MKO Abiola stadium, he was intimated, they didn’t want to give him the party’s flag.”

“I was the one that handed the flag to him. He knows that he cannot be the governor without the help of God and my support. If he wants to meet God at the right place, he must know that without God and me, he would not have become Governor.”
