In what seems to a dramatic U-turn, former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode is now supporting the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, after acerbic criticism to de-market the former governor of Lagos State in the past.
Femi Fani-Kayode, who is now the Director of New Media for the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, specifically said Tinubu would not become president “as long as Jesus sits on the throne.”
Today, he is one of the outspoken member Tinubu’s campaign council.

In a series of tweets on July 14, 2019, Fani-Kayode accused Tinubu of selling his soul to the devil in response to the letter’s comment over the death of Funke Olakunrin, the second daughter of Afenifere leader, Reuben Fasoranti.
Tinubu’s comment on the murder of Funke Olakunrin, who was suspected to be killed by herdsmen, had generated controversies.
During a condolence visit to the Afenifere National Leader, Tinubu argued that Fulani should not be held responsible for the incident, saying that her death should not be used to divide the country.
But responding, Fani-Kayode tweeted, “Even for a confirmed quisling and desperate serf, this time Tinubu has gone too far. Funke has not been buried yet and he is already pissing all over her bullet-riddled body. Tinubu has sold his soul to the devil and his conscience to the north.
“He has become a slave to his ambition and a plaque to his people. He is a shameless soul and wicked old man who is ready to sacrifice anyone and anything to become President.
“I make this pronouncement today: as long as Jesus sits on the throne, he will fail woefully.”
