Femi Fani-Kayode has turned religious.

The former aviation minister announced, on Monday, July 18, 2016, that the government is after him, but he will be safe as long as Jesus is on the throne.

“They are trying to silence me, break me, discredit me and destroy, but as long as Jesus is on the throne this will never work. I am strong and I am bold and the struggle will continue,” he said.

Jesus is on the throne, no doubt, but he doesn’t associate with unrepentant thieves (allegedly).

Fani-Kayode has been accused of money laundering by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and was only released from detention on Friday, July 15 after being in custody for 67 days.

Instead of giving a concrete defence however, the former minister has danced from one rhetoric to the other. First he never touched public funds, then it became a government conspiracy against him.

After that Fani-Kayode admitted that he received a large amount of money but that he had no idea it was stolen. Now, he has placed his troubles completely at the feet of Jesus and is screaming about how nobody can fight the Lord, and that’s true, but they can sure fight Femi Fani-Kayode.

If Fani-Kayode truly believed the money he took, which was meant for use in funding the Goodluck Jonathan campaign, was legitimate, why did he spend some of it on a brand new Range Rover for his lover?

If Jonathan had taken the time to raise funds honestly and painstakingly, would it be right for a member of his campaign to spend the money so carelessly and frivolously?

I wonder which Jesus Fani-Kayode was speaking for when he maliciously attacked an unoffending Muhammadu Buhari despite the latter’s continuous silence. I wonder which Jesus he was representing when he spouted lie after lie in a bid to justify Jonathan’s re-election.

Who’s the father of liars? Definitely not Jesus.

Which Jesus was Fani-Kayode representing when he mocked Nigerians for choosing change after a suicide bombing which killed 17 people? Which Jesus is in support of him camping and impregnating a young girl without marrying her? Not the one I know.

Fani-Kayode needs to learn from Olisa Metuh’s experience and stop fighting the charges against him, which are most likely valid. Instead, he should do what Metuh eventually offered to do after proving stubborn to his own detriment, refund the money in question.

I’m no judge, but if Fani-Kayode, in his current condition, is waiting for Jesus to save him, I fully expect him to be disappointed.
