– Fani-Kayode denies ever asking PDP to apologise to President Buhari
– Vows never to join them to move Nigeria forward
Chief Olufemi Olukayode, Nigeria’s ex minister of Aviation, who recently regained freedom from detention over allegations of misappropriation of public funds, has thrown the first shade at President Muhammadu Buhari.
The former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign frontman, was in detention following his arrest on May 9, 2016, in Abuja. He was later transferred to Lagos where the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) slammed a 17-count charge on him but after weeks in detention, Fani-Kayode was granted a N250 million bail on July 4. The ex-minister who is renown for his fearless and outspoken nature, threw his first shade at the president after denying a Facebook post attributed to him by a random user. While replying the person via his (Fani-Kayode’s) Facebook page, he wrote:
“There is a sick individual on fb who has posted some rubbish and attributed it to me.
“He qouted me as saying the following: ‘I think what is appropriate for us(PDP) is to apologize to President Buhari and the APC, then join them to move Nigeria forward’-Femi Fani-Kayode. “Kindly note that this is FALSE. It is a total fabrication. I never said any such thing privately or publicly and neither have I ever written it or published it anywhere.
“These are desperate and despicable tactics being employed to gather support for themselves by a desperate and despicable government. “I remain totally committed to opposing the Buhari administration and the APC and I would NEVER suggest to anyone to ‘join them to move Nigeria forward’.”
