Former Minister of Transportation, Femi Fani-Kayode has condemned Islamic group, Muslim Solidarity Forum’s statement which served as a response to Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Hassan Kukah’s controversial Christmas message.
Recall that after the Catholic Bishop said that there might have been a coup if a non-nothern Muslim did half of the things President Buhari has done, Acting Chairman of MSF, Prof Isa Maishanu accused Kukah of trying to break the age-long peaceful coexistence between the predominantly Muslim population and their Christian guests.
The group also asked the Catholic Bishop to “quickly and quietly leave the seat of Caliphate” or immediately stop his “malicious vituperations against Islam and Muslims” and tender unreserved apology to the Muslim Ummah. Reacting to this in a tweet he shared, FFK stated that there is no need for an apology as Kukah did not insult Islam.
The former Minister who stated that those who demand that he “must apologise” or “leave Sokoto” must mind their utterances and keep the peace, added that he will give anyone who provides him with a video of Kukah calling for violence against Muslims or inciting people against Islam one million naira.
He also said he will give one million naira to anyone who shows him a video where “President Muhammadu Buhari specifically apologised and expressed regret for the brutal slaughter of innocent southern Youth Corpers by his supporters in the North”. FFK tweeted; Bishop Hassan Kukah did not attack Islam & has nothing to apologise about.
He has always sought for religious tolerance & peaceful co-existence between Christians & Muslims.Those that demand that he “must apologise” or “leave Sokoto” must mind their utterances & keep the peace.If anyone can provide me with a video of Kukah calling for violence against Muslims or inciting people against Islam I will give him one million naira.
Show me a video in which Muhammadu Buhari specifically apologised and expressed regret for the brutal slaughter of innocent southern Youth Corpers by his supporters in the North during the 2011 presidential election and I will give you 1 million naira.
