Ahmad Gumi, Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, has slammed Femi Fani-Kayode over his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Fani-Kayode officially joined the APC on Thursday, after many months of speculations.
The former minister of aviation was received at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, by President Muhammadu Buhari, after he was presented by Mai Mala Buni, the caretaker chairman of the APC.
Fani-Kayode, who had been a staunch critic of the Buhari-led administration, claimed that he was moved by the Holy Spirit to join the APC.
Last week, the former minister had said Gumi was “from hell”, after the cleric condemned the ongoing military onslaught on bandits in Zamfara State.
The former PDP member also described Gumi as an “unrepentant and unapologetic lover of bandits”.
“My question: which of the seven circles of hell did this creature come from”? he had said.
Reacting to the news of the defection in a Facebook post, Gumi shared the 2019 Twitter post by Fani-Kayode, saying he would “rather die than join the APC or bow to President Muhammadu Buhari”.
Gumi said he had long neglected the “rantings” of Fani-Kayode, knowing fully well that he is a traitor and fake.
He described the former minister as “Judas” and a “traitor”.
“I have for long neglected the rantings of the Judas of Oduduwa attacking me knowing fully well that he is fake and a traitor,” Gumi wrote.
“Time has now caught up with him and thanks to Allah, all his vituperations are cast in the dustbin of merciless history.
“It’s him now one wonders which of the seven circles of hell this duper will settle if he doesn’t repent.”
