Fani-Kayode said:

“Is it only Christians that have been killed and kidnapped by terrorists and that are affected by the ASUU strike?
“Why do you thrive on deceit and division? Can't you just grow up and stop trying to set Nigeria on fire?”

"Up until then you despised and showed contempt for every Christian in this country except for those that shared your Catholic faith.

"This newfound attempt to be champion of our holy faith cannot and will not work and it is deeply insulting. Worse still you are the least qualified."
