Fani-Kayode Urges Support For Government's Anti- Terror Campaign

The former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Wednesday called for increased support for government’s ongoing campaign against terrorism.
Fani-Kayode said irrespective of the differences, it was important to seek collective efforts on the insurgency, stressing that the fight against terror should not be politicized.
The ex-minister spoke on Channels TV Sunrise Programme monitored by our correspondent in Abuja.

The former Director of Media and Publicity to erstwhile President Goodluck Jonathan campaign team, during the 2015 general election, however denied being a member of the last administration.
He said the last administration did not divert money meant for arms purchase.
He also insisted that Jonathan’s administration fought Boko Haram insurgents to a standstill.
Fani-Kayode said the arms purchased were used to reclaim about 22 local government areas captured by insurgents.
He said, “I don’t think it’s helpful to continue blaming the government on challenges we are facing on the war front. But it is important for us to come together to support the government in the fight against terror because we are all Nigerians regardless of what political party you are in.
“This is not the time to cast
The Nation.
