Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Olufemi Olu-Kayode (formerly Femi Fani-Kayode), has accused the United States government of encouraging Boko Haram and allowing the terrorists’ activities to feser on Nigeria.
He wrote on his Facebook page: “The U.S. govt. helped Boko Haram immensly by refusing to classify them as a terrorist organisation until 2014 and by refusing to sell us arms to fight them. Worst still, they imposed an international arms embargo on us so that we could not buy arms from anyone else”
His comments comes in the wake of President Muhammadu Buhari’s just concluded four-day working visit to the U.S where he met President Barack Obama and got assurance of America’s help in the fight against terrorism and corruption.
Olu-Kayode had on Wednesday, praised President Buhari for courageously rejecting gay rights
He wrote: “”Sodomy is against our laws and abhorrent to our culture”- President Muhammadu Buhari to the Americans. It took courage to say this to them. Thanks be to God..”
The former minister changed his name from Femi Fani-Kayode to Olufemi Olukayode on July 1, after a court discharged and acquitted him from money laundering charges brought against him by the EFCC
