Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Aviation Minister, has reacted to the backlash from Nigerians after he shared pictures with Isa Pantami, the minister of communications and digital economy and other politicians at President Muhammadu Buhari’s son wedding in Kano.

Fani-Kayode, a fierce critic of Buhari government had on Facebook said he flew into Kano in the company of Pantami; Bello Matawalle and Babagana Zulum, governors of Zamfara and Borno; Nuhu Ribadu, and other dignitaries, which the PDP Chieftain had publicly attacked.

Shortly after he share a picture with Pantami, some Nigerians said he lacked honor for dining with someone he described as a ‘unrepentant jihadist, cold blooded beast, a psychopathic and clearly insane individual.

Reacting, Fani-Kayode stated that people can be friends with their political adversary and still disagree.

He wrote, “Buba Galadima with Ahmad Lawan, GEJ with PMB, GEJ with VP & Atiku with PMB. Politics is about bridge-building regardless of your differences.

“It is not war. You can be friends with your political adversary & still disagree. It’s called politics without bitterness & being civilised.”
