Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani Kayode has defended his friend, Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, after leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU kick against the professorship.

Speaking to press in Abuja on Monday November 15 at the end of a two-day meeting of the National Executive Council, the newly elected President of the association Victor Osodeke stated that ”there are many unanswered questions on Mr Ibrahim’s professorship’.

Reacting to this development, FFK via his Instagram page wrote;

”What has Isa Pantami done to ASUU? When will the hatred stop? Is it because he is Muslim? I know Pantami well and he is eminently qualified to be a Professor. Let us be guided by love and not hate. Lies, disinformation, prejudice, ignorance and religious bigotry has blinded many in our country.”
