A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has again come under heavy criticism on social media, after he shared photos he took with Nigeria’s terrorists-linked Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami.

“It was an honour and privilege for my friend and brother, Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State and I to have been invited to dinner at the beautiful home of my friend and brother, Professor Isa Pantami, the Hon.Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, last night,” Fani-Kayode captioned the pictures in a post on Twitter.

“We were there until the early hours of the morning, we had a wonderful time and we discussed crucial national and international issues and the way forward.  

“Thanks for having us my brother. Together we shall continue to build bridges of peace, unity, love and understanding in our country, fight the war against terror and restore the glory and greatness of Nigeria. Great things lie ahead”

The former minister officially returned to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday.

He was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja, by the Chairman of APC National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni.

Fani-Kayode had, in April, described Pantami as a “jihadist”, following the former’s pro-Al-Qaeda views.

He also asked President Buhari to arrest and prosecute the minister for his extremist views and links to Al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

“He (Pantami) is a religious bigot, an ethnic supremacist, an unrepentant jihadist, a lover of bloodshed, carnage and terror and a psychopathic and clearly insane individual,” he had said.

“Pantami is not fit to be a minister of the Federal Republic, but he is also not fit to walk our streets freely.”

The recent pictures have since elicited intense criticism on Twitter, a microblogging platform, with one of the comments describing him as a “shameless man”.
