Part of the statement read:

“Fani-Kayode is now talking about Absalom, but what about him completely denying and betraying his own faith. Is that not a worse story of Judas?”

The lawyers wondered why the former minister of aviation who had openly criticized the same faith ticket in the past, was now soliciting Osinbajo’s support for it.

They said:

“We don’t now know which version of FFK to believe or which is the real or fake. This is what social duplicity means and the unstable public commentator called Fani-Kayode is the best expression of a political chameleon.

“We demand he apologises to Nigerians for his crooked manifestation of tomfoolery.”

The group further stated that Fani-Kayode has exposed his lack of integrity, betrayal of faith in his recent actions.

Their words:

“We have been saying all this quietly for a few months now but nothing has happened. No one seems to be listening and no one seems to care.

“Worst still, instead of reaching out and allaying our fears we are now being fed with subtle yet insulting and unacceptable rationalisations and justifications for what is essentially politically explosive and electorally suicidal nonsense.

“If there is no Christian in Nigeria that qualifies to be President or Vice President and that does not have the noble qualities of “integrity, capacity and competence” that were listed earlier, then they should tell us and we will know what to do.

“The whole thing is beginning to move in a certain direction and it stinks.

“An illicit and subterranean agenda seems to be unfolding and, instead of assuring us that such a thing can never happen or even be contemplated in today’s Nigeria, they are telling us to live with it and that, all of a sudden, religion does not matter anymore.”
