Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to condemn the alleged mass murder and genocide of innocent women and children in Gaza. Fani-Kayode made the appeal in a post on his verified X (formerly Twitter) page on Tuesday, urging the Nigerian Government to join other countries worldwide in condemning the killings.
As a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Fani-Kayode also called on President Tinubu to advocate for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas conflict.
“If Hamas were to seize and occupy an Israeli town, would the Israeli Defence Force bomb the city into a sea of rubble & slaughter thousands of innocent Israeli men, women and children, all in an attempt to crush the terrorists?” Fani-Kayode questioned. He emphasized that if the answer is “NO,” there can be no justification for the alleged actions in Gaza.
Expressing concern over the situation, Fani-Kayode urged President Tinubu and the Nigerian Government to join the global community in condemning what he referred to as mass murder, genocide, and ethnic cleansing of innocent women and children in Gaza. He called for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire, emphasizing the need for justice in the matter.
“I urge our courageous and amiable leader, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (@officialABAT) and the Nigerian Government to join others from all over the world and condemn the mass murder, genocide and ethnic cleansing of innocent women and children that is going on in Gaza today and call for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire.
Fani-Kayode concluded by stating, “The Lord wills it, and justice demands it!”. The appeal adds to the international calls for intervention and condemnation of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.
