Tuesday, Fani-Kayode called the Nigerian government to join other nations worldwide in denouncing the killings of the defenceless in Gaza in a post on his verified X (formerly Twitter) page.
The president was also encouraged by the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to demand an immediate and unconditional cessation of hostilities between Israel and Hamas.
He wrote: “If Hamas were to seize and occupy an Israeli town, would the Israeli Defence Force bomb the city into a sea of rubble & slaughter thousands of innocent Israeli men, women and children, all in an attempt to crush the terrorists?
“If the answer is NO, there can be no justification whatsoever for what is going on in Gaza today. The objective must be to crush Hamas and not to murder or eliminate the Palestinian people and every single man, woman and child in Gaza.
“I urge our courageous and amiable leader, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (@officialABAT) and the Nigerian Government to join others from all over the world and condemn the mass murder, genocide and ethnic cleansing of innocent women and children that is going on in Gaza today and call for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire.
“The Lord wills it, and justice demands it!”
