Femi Fani-Kayode, a former aviation minister and chieftain of the main opposition party in Nigeria, has congratulated the new president elect of the United States, Donald Trump for his stunning victory at the elections.
Chief Fani-Kayode, a prominent Nigerian supporter of the billionaire real estate mogul, was in detention when Trump defeated a former US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton after a hard-fought election on November 8, 2016.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission was holding him illegally in what activists and his political allies say is a politically motivated witch hunt because Fani-Kayode is a critic of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
In an opinion editorial which would be published in a few hours, Fani-Kayode said that President Trump would team up with the Israeli president, Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian president, Valdimir Putin to fight radical Islam jihadism in the world.
He also said that the incoming US president would end the Islamisation agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari and restore America’s Christian values in the White House.
“Let it be clearly understood that the implications of a Trump presidency for Nigeria are far-reaching and self-evident,” he wrote.
“Those that came to power last year on the the mantle of islamic domination, religious intolerance and racial discrimination and that espoused the most hideous form of ethnic bigotry and religious fanaticism certainly have a lot of soul-searching to do because there friends in the Obama White House are on their way out and their darling Hilary is not coming in to replace him.
“I assure you that President Donald Trump, who I have known and studied closely for many years, will literally give them hell.
“Not only will he resist their constant and gross violations of human rights and civil liberties but he will.also bring them to justice for their regular use of genocide against religious and ethnic minorities in our country.
“He will also confront their hidden agenda to islamise Nigeria and turn us into a nation of ethnic and religious vassals that must bow before President Muhammadu Buhari and his kinsmen.
“For those that wield political power in Nigeria and for the small cabal of ethnic hegemonists, “born to rule” irredentists and religious bigots that run the affairs of our nation, the writing is on the wall.
“Their days are numbered because those that put them in power from America have themselves been shamed and removed from power by the Living God,” the editorial said in part.
