Fani-Kayode warns President Buhari: Do not join Erdogan to fight Israel



Ex-Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has warned the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) not to respond to the call of Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan to assist Palestine against Israel.

Erdogan had on Friday telephoned Buhari, looking for his help for Palestine in the fight against Israel.

A statement released by the Turkey Presidency stated that Erdogan pointed out the efforts of Turkey used so that the global community can instill the essential lesson to unlawful, unfair and dishonest Israel owing to its attacks against Palestine.

The Presidency declared that Erdogan expressed his confidence that Nigeria would demonstrate unity with Palestinians in this just cause.

It said, “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 Palestinians in this rightful cause.”

Responding to this development on Sunday, Fani-Kayode declared that the Turkish President should leave Nigeria out of his jihad against Israel and his effort to teach Israel a lesson.

Fani-Kayode warned Buhari as saying, “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 every true Christian to stand with Israel. There are over 100 million Christians in this country who love & revere 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.”
