Fani Kayode replies Adesina over Obasanjo and Buhari You can’t compare angel with demon Fani Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has said comparing ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo with President Muhammadu Buhari is like comparing the living with the dead.
Fani Kayode replies Adesina made the remark while condemning a statement by the presidency that Buhari elevated a state Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, who Obasanjo called an idiot.
Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina had said the president recently received CAN chairman, Plateau State Chapter, Rev Yakubu Pam who Obasanjo described as “a total idiot”.
Reacting, Fani Kayode replies Adesina condemned the statement by the Presidency.
In a series of tweets, the former minister insisted that bandits never abducted any CAN Chairman and demanded ransom during Obasanjo’s tenure.
“No CAN Chairman was kidnapped and killed by terrorists under Obasanjo. No CAN Chairman was ever abducted for ransom by bandits under Obasanjo.
“Comparing OBJ to Buhari is like comparing the living to the dead.
“It’s like comparing light and darkness. It’s like comparing angels and demons. It’s like comparing good and evil. It’s like comparing blessings and curses. It’s like comparing joy and pain.
“It’s like comparing Churchill and Hitler. It’s like comparing George Washington and Idi Amin.
“It’s like comparing the sun and the moon. It’s like comparing heaven and hell.”
