Fani-Kayode Blasts Sheik Gumi, Says He’s A Bandit Lover, Spokesman Of Fulani Terrorists
Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, has described controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi as an unrepentant lover of bandits.
Fani-Kayode made the remark while criticizing Gumi for defending bandits and herders despite their criminal activities.
He accused the Kaduna-based Islamic scholar of being the spokesman of foreign Fulani terrorists.
Sharing a video of Gumi on his Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode wrote: “Listen to Sheik Ahmad Gumi, the unrepentant and unapologetic ‘lover of bandits’ and the Chief Spokesman for the foreign Fulani terrorists that come into our country from other shores and kidnap, torture and slaughter our men, women and children.
“He continues to demand that the terrorists must be paid huge ransoms and must be granted amnesty. My question: which of the seven circles of hell did this creature come from?”
Recall that Gumi had urged the Federal Government to create a Ministry of Nomadic Affairs.
Gumi said the ministry would address the challenges surrounding herders.
He pointed out that bandits in the North are going nowhere.

JUST IN: ‘There Can’t Be Healing Without True Justice’, Rhodes-Vivour Replies Tinubu
…Says Insecurity Our Common Enemy, Not Our Neighbours
Governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Saturday’s gubernatorial poll, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour (GRV) has said President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s call for healing after the elections cannot happen without justice to all the alleged infractions that happened during the electoral process that is now nearing completion.
The candidate also said the party will explore all available legal options to address alleged injustices that marred the governorship and assembly polls in the state.
Recall that the governorship poll which held on Saturday, March 18 2023 was a three-horse race that had incumbent Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdul-Azeez Adediran of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP and Rhodes-Vivour slug it out with each other.
At end of the contest, Governor Sanwo-Olu took the day. The Returning Officer, Prof Adenike Oladiji while declaring the results on Monday said Sanwo-Olu, polled a total of 762,134 votes to defeat his closest rival, Rhodes-Vivour who polled a total of 312,329 votes. PDP’s Adediran polled a total of 62,449 votes.
Rhodes-Vivour during a world press conference on Wednesday said his message during the campaigns was based on empathy, love, good governance devoid of the rancor.
Read full text of his address below;
“Good afternoon, Lagos, I start again by thanking Lagosians for their courage for making decisions based on hope and resisting fear. Our message was about empathy, love, good governance that is open and accountable.
“Yesterday I spent my day visiting victims of Saturdays state back terrorism and violence from Abule-Ado to Surulere, Apapa and Ikeja. I met with young men and women with bullets lodged in their body with deep cuts, fractured legs, etc.
“I reach out to you to say I am with you I feel your pain and we myself the deputy governor are by your side. We have launched the platform GRV cares 2023 and anyone who have suffered violence should upload their picture, hospital bills and police report and we will help towards offsetting these bills.
“Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu called for healing yesterday, but healing cannot happen without justice. The APC unleashed evil on Lagosian, diabolically with their fetish rites and curses during the day, and physical violence against all Lagosian, yet they want the peace of a graveyard, they want the healing of the dead.
“The thrust of my message isn’t to the evil cult organization of the APC, but it is to the indigenous Lagosian, and Lagosian at large. We cannot afford to have an agberocracy – or a military type of government that will use violence and diabolical means to create a one-party state – from Ikoyi to Ikeja to Ikorodu, we were all disenfranchised.
“They could not campaign on their past records, so they stoked ethnic strife. For the ambition of one man and his cult, the entire credibility that inec had built over the last 4 years was ripped in shreds. For the ambition of one man, we saw our traditional institutions reduced to pawns, tools, oro rites that are done at night were done during the day, invoking in broad day light the spell that Senator Tinubu and his cult have used to keep Lagos bound.
“This was no election, it was violence on multiple levels, diabolically and physically. On this ambition they sowed seeds that could potentially lead to outcome like the Rwandan genocide. Lagosian, our enemy are not our neighbors or visitors, or fellow Lagosian with diverse tongues. Our common enemy is violence, insecurity, poverty, stagnation, corruption, and underdevelopment. It is these same people responsible for these, that have weaponized poverty and ethnicity to distract us from their evil endeavors and diabolical activities. We will never have a free and fair election under a Tinubu presidency. “They have tried to destroy years of delicately balanced ethnic relations, years or inter-marriage and friendships, years of commerce, and years of building Lagos into the economic juggernaut that it is. I call on the silent majority, decent and cultured Lagosian, indigenous Lagosian and Lagosian at large to speak out. It is enough of the worst of us defining the rest of us. On Saturday, we saw their vision for Lagos and agberocracy, and we will fight through all legal channels to birth OUR LAGOS,” the statement
Meanwhile, Rhodes-Vivour, has disclosed there was no election in the state.
He described the March 18 governorship election in the state to be marred with violence.
He said this while addressing the media on Wednesday.
He said, “There was no election in Lagos state. It was violent at multiple levels physically and diabolic.
“My dear Lagosians, our enemies are not our neighbours or our visitors or fellow Lagosians. Our common enemy is violence, insecurity, poverty, stagnation, corruption and underdevelopment.”
The Independent National Electoral Commission had announced Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress as the winner of last Saturday’s election in the state.
The declaration was made in the early hours of Monday, March 20, by the Returning Officer of the Governorship and House of Assembly elections in Lagos State, Professor Adenike Oladeji.
Sanwo-Olu polled 762,134 votes to defeat Rhodes-Vivour who polled 312,329while Olajide Adeniran of the Peoples Democratic Party polled 62,449 votes.

Kano Senator Barau Joins Race For Senate President
…Says He’s The Best Candidate For The Job
The lawmaker representing Kano North in the Senate, Senator Jubrin Barau, has officially announced his intention to run for the position of President of the Senate in the 10th National Assembly.
His declaration is coming a day after the Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, said it is his turn to be the Senate President of the country.
Speaking to journalists at the National Assembly Wednesday morning, Senator Barau said competence, capacity and experience should be the factors to determine who should be the President of the Senate in the 10th Assembly.
On the matter of religious considerations bearing in mind that he is of the same faith with the President and Vice President elect, he said religious sentiments should not be a factor in determining who will lead the 10th Assembly.
The race for the position of principal officers of the 10th assembly is heating up as some federal lawmakers-elect in the Senate have signaled interest in running and are reported to be lobbying their colleagues for support.
Other Senators-elect who have signaled interest in the position of Senate President include Godswill Akpabio and David Umahi.
