It Is Time To Forget About Religion And Other Petty Considerations In Politics- Fani-Kayode.

Mr Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation in Nigeria, has taken to his official Twitter platform to urge Nigerians that it is time to forget about religion and other petty considerations when it comes to politics.

In a series of posts on Twitter, the former minister opined that when it comes to politics, that the heart does the work and not the person’s religion, tribe or color, and he also recalled how the United Kingdom elected a Hindu prime minister, while Scotland elected a Muslim as first minister and London also elected a brown skinned ethnic minority as it’s mayor.

Fani-Kayode also argued that it is time for Nigeria to move beyond religion and tribe in electing leaders of their countries, citing that as long as we refuse to change our mindsets, our country would hardly move forward to become the great and mighty country that it’s destined to be.

However, the comments by Fani-Kayode did not seem to go down well with many Nigerians as many people took to the comments section of his post to slam him for his political opinion, while a host of others gave their reasons to support his claims.
