Fani-Kayode counters President Jonathan, says Ekiti rigging tape authentic but ….

Femi Fani-Kayode

Contrary to President Goodluck Jonathan’s dismissal of the Ekiti rigging audio recording as a fabrication that is not worth his attention, the spokesperson for his campaign, Femi Fani-Kayode has admitted that the tape is genuine but that the characters involved in the meeting captured in the recording were not discussing how to rig the 2014 governorship election in Ekiti state.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, Mr. Fani-Kayode said his team had listened to and reviewed the recording and that it came to the conclusion that the opposition All Progressives Congress turned fact on its head by claiming that Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state; former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro; and the Minister of Police Affairs, Jelili Adesiyan, who featured in the recording, planned how to rig the election.

“We have listened to the audio clip and we make bold to say that the discussion that took place in it did not make any mention of any form of rigging in the Ekiti state governorship election and neither did it contain any evidence of any conspiracy to rig,” he said.

Mr. Fani-Kayode also said rather than attempting to orchestrate rigging, what the audio clip clearly revealed was Governor Fayose expressing concerns that a military commander was not acting on information about illegal movement of weapons into certain parts of the state.

“The Governor and others were apparently worried that safety of the voters and INEC officials could be compromised if security measures were not strictly enforced,” he said.

Mr Fani-Kayode’s admission of the authenticity of the tape is another chapter in the series of contradictory responses from the ruling party and those at the centre of the vote rigging plot.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, last Friday, Mr. Jonathan said he would not investigate the authenticity of the audio recording because it was a “fabrication.”

“It’s all fabrications. Why should I investigate things that are not real?” he asked.

Using forensic analysis that compared the voices in the recording with public record samples of the individuals in the recording, Guardian Consulting, The New York-based security firm, that helped authenticate the recordings, confirmed that the tape was genuine.

“The voices from the recording were subjected to a Forensic Voice Frequency Comparison against known samples and were found to match to a 98 per cent degree of certainty,” the firm said.

Mr Jonathan’s dismissal of the tape as a fabrication came after Mr Obanikoro denied taking part in the meeting and threatened to sue PREMIUM TIMES and Sahara Reporters for their vigorous reporting on the matter.

Mr. Adesiyan confessed that the recording was genuine but that it was more of an altercation between Mr. Fayose and Mr. Momoh after the former accused the latter of favouring the then governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi.

“Fayose accused the General who supervised the Ekiti election of taking bribe from Fayemi and APC, that was two days before the election. They called me because they said the General disarmed policemen and I told him to allow the policemen to do their job,” he told the Sunday Punch newspaper.

After initially claiming his voice was manipulated using speech software such as Natural Voices, Mr. Fayose later admitted during a political event in Ekiti that it was his voice that was captured in the tape but claimed he was rebuking Mr. Momoh for favouring the APC.

“If you listen to the tape about military rigging in Ekiti. Listen to the tape you will see that I was the one accusing the army of compromise. Listen, take time to listen. But they would come back with propaganda and saying it all as if the whole world of propaganda belongs to them,” he said.

Counter Allegation

While challenging the APC to do a critical content analysis of the discussions in the audio clip, Mr. Fani-Kayode said it was the APC that rigged the governorship election in Osun state.

“During the course of those elections, some of their agents gathered in secret locations where they thumb-printed ballot papers in favor of their governorship candidate, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola,” he said.

Mr. Fani Kayode also played a video tape he claimed proved the APC rigged the election in Osun state.

“It is ironic that instead of purging itself of its own insatiable appetite for rigging and cheating, the APC, through its Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, chose to call a press conference in which he alleged that our leaders were ordering soldiers to rig in Ekiti state.

“This is a clear case of the pot calling the kettle black,” he said.

APC, Buhari calling for violence

At his press conference, Mr. Fani-Kayode also accused the APC and its presidential candidate of veiled attempts to instigate violence in the country, while also undermining the nation’s armed forces.

“It is now very clear to us that the APC is determined to cause security breaches in the next few weeks. This has been confirmed by their vigorous campaign of calumny against the military and their consistent demand that soldiers must not be deployed for security surveillance at the polling booths in the forthcoming elections,” he said.

Mr. Fani-Kayode also alleged what he termed subtle threat of violence by Mr. Buhari at an APC leadership meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.

“General Buhari said that the patience of the APC and its leaders were on test. One wonders what he means by that and what he and his supporters intend to do once that patience runs out.

“In an AFP news report of Friday, February 6, 2015, he was asked if he would accept the outcome of the presidential election no matter how unfavourable. Listen to his answer: “I am not going to lose; so I won’t answer that question.”

“Again, only yesterday, Wednesday, February 18, 2015, in an interview on ARISE Television, General Buhari was asked what his reaction would be if he loses the election. His answer was: “We shall see.”

“As far as we are concerned, these are ominous and subtle threats to unleash violence on the Nigerian people and all those that he perceives are his enemies in the event of his losing the election,” he said.

Mr. Fani-Kayode said Mr. Buhari has succeeded in inflaming the destructive passion of his supporters in the northern part of the country on many occasions in the past.

“We recall his unacceptable remarks on May 15, 2012 when he said “if what happened in 2011 should happen again in 2015, the dog and the baboon would be soaked in blood”.

“We witnessed the orgy of violence that they unleashed shortly after the announcement of the results of the 2011 presidential election, which the Sheik Lemu Committee, in its report to the Federal Government, said was caused by Buhari’s inflammatory statements.

“We recall with sadness the massacre of some of our vibrant youth corps members who participated in the 2011 election as INEC’s ad-hoc staff in Bauchi State.

“We are concerned that the same thing may happen again given General Buhari’s divisive and inciting comments coupled with the APC’s violent disposition,” Mr. Fani-Kayode said.

He said the attempt by the APC to discredit the use of soldiers by promoting some “misleading audio footage of the so-called rigging during the Ekiti governorship election, in which one Captain Sagir Koli was the dramatis personae, is childish and absurd”.

He said the Nigerian Government deployed soldiers in the Anambra, Edo, Ondo, Ekiti and Osun gubernatorial elections and all those elections were devoid of violence.

“Remarkably, the APC won in Edo and Osun; APGA won in Anambra, Labour Party won in Ondo while PDP won only in Ekiti State,” he said.

He added that the basis on which the APC is agitating for the exclusion of soldiers from the election by sponsoring court cases is patently dubious and untenable.

“The reason that the APC and its leaders do not want soldiers deployed is to be able to intimidate voters and unleash violence on the polity once they lose the elections.

“They know that it would be far more difficult for them to do that when soldiers are on the streets.

“With these dishonourable tactics and desperate acts by the APC, we are the ones who should be worried and who should be complaining but, unlike Buhari and the APC, our patience is not running out because we are committed to a peaceful election and we completely reject the option of violence,” he said.

    BUHARI IN DEEP TROUBLE

    The governor (Ayo Fayose) said; “The truth is that Buhari travelled out today to seek medicare in USA.”

    “If the APC people are saying otherwise, let them publish the picture of Buhari boarding the plane and granting interview to Aviation Correspondents at the Abuja Airport.

    “While I am happy that the APC people that are packaging Buhari finally hearkened to my plea that they should allow him (Buhari) to seek medicare abroad, I must say that it was evil for the APC to have lied that Buhari travelled on a working
    visit.”

    • zacchaeus Akinleye

      Medical care is what you meant. Medicare is an American benefit program and you should stop parroting your ignorance through sentiments.

      • Vladimir

        Midicare may be an American benefit program, but do you care what Medicare means in Nigeria and to Nigerians? I just don’t understand how children of contemporary times reason. No wonder they now throw bananas at you people ‘in the abroad’. Nobody ever threw bananas at us in the 50s & 60s.

        How can you begin to judge a full blown Nigerian based on the nomenclature of a word as used in a foreign land? This is weird and frustratingly embarrassing. You ought to consider what Medicare means to the Ijaw, Isoko, Urhobo, Efik, Fulani, Igbo etc etc in Nigeria and not your damn mention of America. So, remove the log from your eyes, then and then only will you be able to sight a speck in someone else’s eye.

        • zacchaeus Akinleye

          What makes you a full-blown Nigerian if you’re not teachable? I just pointed out to you what Medicare is and you are on this trip to prove your ignorance is deep and ranting about children throwing bananas at their parents abroad. You may enjoy your delusions: my first son recently became a medical doctor, and many more in the pipeline. Since it gives you fits, I restate it to you, again, that Medicare is an American medical benefit program, not just going to see a doctor for treatment.

          • Vladimir

            Indeed, a slave who loves his chains remains a slave forever. I pray that neither you nor your imaginary first son is placed on ‘Choke-hold’ someday. Best of luck!

  • True Nigerian

    Femi prides himself as a Pastor. He speaks and writes in God’s name. He even gets invited to churches where he mounts on the pulpit to speak about spiritual things.

    Now, here is the same Femi burying his head and heart in the business of telling white lies to the Nigerian public. This is why I don’t pay a lot of attention to Nigerian churches, even though I am a Christian. The Nigerian church and the Nigerian Christianity makes Jesus ashamed. Femi and Reno Omokri refer to themselves as Pastors. And guess what? Nigerians flock to these debased fellows in the name of Christianity. Those are the kind of Christians that Nigerian churches are producing. It explains why a horrendous character like Jonathan is being passed-off as “Christian interest” in the next election, despite the fact that his immoral poitics, corruption and divisive tendency clearly constitutes the greatest danger to the Nigerian society today. In the end, it is clear that the Nigerian Christianity is merely reflective of the collapse of values in the Nigerian society.

    If there will ever be a day that I will start practising the kind of Christianity that Reno, Femi and our bribe-taking political pentecostal bishops are practising, may God take my life before that day arrives. You have just read these words from a committed Christian.

    Nigerian Pentecostal Bishops are collecting N7b from Jonathan in order to start spreading lies about Buhari and start telling favourable lies about Jonathan whilst also using spiritual blackmail to intimidate their members to vote for Jonathan and vote against Buhari.

    When Nigeria starts burning, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ will turn deaf ears to the weeping and gnashing that will befall the church in this country. People will think that God is deaf; but to him, the cup of lies, deceit and spiritual fraud by the Nigerian church is only due for a painful judgement.

    God is ashamed of the Nigerian church. If I am ashamed as a human being who is a Christian, I wonder how mortified God feels about the debased level of moral rectitude that Nigerians believe to be Christianity.

      Fani’s write ups are spiritual. So it is difficult or impossible for the children of darkness to understand and/or appreciate his position and writings. So, I admonish you to seek deliverance from darkness in which you are seemingly submerged so that you could be in a position to drink from the sweet fountain of Fani’s writings from which flows knowledge that will transform your life from its visibly miserable state to that of eternal bliss. Be blessed as you take this bold step out of darkness.

      • True Nigerian

        Hahahahahaha! And the Lord “shall laugh at them with derision…” Hahahahaha!

        Talking about darkness, Jesus said that the eyes are the source of light to the whole body, and therefore that if the light that enters into your eye is darkness, then your darkness is really deep!

        Femi’s knowledge which you refer to as light in your own estimation, is to my estimation, deadly gross darkness. That means that the darkness in which you existed before you saw Femi’s lesser darkness is so deep that even a candle feels like a floodlight to your eyes.

        My friend, we all have varying degrees of light. As a person who hasn’t seen many great lights in your life, the fact that you like candles doesn’t mean that those who have floodlights should flick off the switch and borrow your candle. Remember, for all the light you enjoy from your candle-like lights, there are many of us who won’t even read if you give us a candle — because we have the privilege and opportunity of a better lighting.

        Now, let those nuggets of wisdom cure your eyesight! You were already blessed and don’t need to be blessed again, if only you manage to stop cursing your blessings with your blissful ignorance.

        Don’t bother about blessing me again. I was blessed before I was born! You were blessed too, but you are probably cursing yourself by celebrating darkness as great light!

        Anyway, your name is Vladimir. As a Russian Communist, you are not likely to have a fairly good knowledge of what is darkness and what is light in the Christian sense. 🙂

  • Philex

    It is like these people do not even listen to the the things they themselves said on the tape before coming out to tell these stories.

    According to Fani-Kayode, “The Governor and others were apparently worried that safety of the voters and INEC officials could be compromised if security measures were not strictly enforced”. Maybe Fani-Kayode did not hear Obanikoro say to General Momoh: “You cannot get your promotion, while I sit on your Military Council”; “If I am a happy man after the elections, the sky is your limit”; “I am not here for a tea party, I am here on the instruction of Mr. President”.
    It is like Fani-Kayode did not also know that only PDP members were invited to that meetting with General Momoh to discuss the “safety of the voters”, even though the sitting governor was the chief security officer of the state.

    Ok, so Obanikoro was in that meeting as Minister of state for Defense; Adesiyan was there as Minister of Police Affairs. Then Omisore was there as what? And Fayose was there as what? Was he the only candidate in that election? Now, Mr. FFK, I tell you something, if you are looking for a realy food story for this mess, I can help you with one. It would not be a perfect story, but I guarantee that it would be much much better that all these cock and bull you people have been spewing out.

  • Es3

    What the true meaning of the word “Fabrication”???

    If a real real (true) audio tape is circulated as evidence of election rigging and it is has been countered by stating that the tape contains no mention or discussions that can be said to be “rigging planning session” as being claimed!

    Meanwhile and on the other hand, if the the source(s) of the tape insist on their original position as they do while weilding in stories around the tape with the intent to prove what the tape itself is lacking, what would you call that if not fabrications???!!!

    Fabrication does not dwell only on straight-out lies, but also on truth that is being meandered, restructured and dressed to show that which is not obtainable from the original and APC has fabricated stories of how the tape clearly speaks rigging by PDP, when the reality of the tape itself holds otherwise?!!!

    Yes Fayose, the whole world of propaganda does not belong to them that are accusing you, you have also just stared the controversy in another direction and there is your own propaganda for those who care to listen. The difference is that yours is a lie while the tape is true and real. You are a rogue governor after all!

      If you call Fayose a rogue governor, then what would you call Governor Lord Luggard and Queen Victoria of England? Aren’t these the greatest of rogues? But you don’t call them rogues, bcos the history books which they wrote calls them ‘colonialists’…and in that brainwashed state, you lose your identity to the point that your avatar depicts your eternally colonized state of mind.

        Obviously you are still in the colonial era and under Lord Lugard or Queen Victoria of England. Since you have issues with them don`t you think it will be better to direct your comment to them while you let us the rest of humanity deal with the issues of today as it concern us.

  • Vladimir

    STOP DELETING MY COMMENTS

    I am now convinced beyond reasonable doubt, that PT’s reporters all attended that Katsina College. Otherwise how come they cannot understand that Fani & Jonathan are on the same page?

    Jonathan says; “… it is all fabrication. It is unreal…”
    Fani says ; “… admitted that the tape is genuine but that the characters involved in the meeting captured in the recording were not discussing how to rig the 2014 governorship election in Ekiti state.”

    So what is the difference? Jonathan being a PhD holder, expressed his opinion in a terse form, using just one word ‘fabrication’ to describe the saga. This one word ‘fabrication’ represents ALL that Fani described or said. So, why is Premium Times being petty? Does Premium Times really think Nigerians don’t understand English anymore? Make the Editors remember say person wey dey cry dey see road o!…Nonsense!

    ….and see the kind useless caption they used; “Fani-Kayode counters President Jonathan…” It has no other name. It is called bad belle journalism.

Your Jonathan says something isn’t real, ffk says it is and yet somehow you are able to see these two very opposing views as the same!!! Your Jonathan says he is not going to investigate the tape and yet he came to the conclusion that the tape isn’t real. Pray tell, how did he come to such a conclusion without an investigation? This is your level of comprehension and yet you somehow believe you are in a position to condemn the Katsina College? Truly amazing!!!

      Stop your nonsense, what’s your solution ban free speech and free enterprise?

  • Lamentations

    Nigeria is not a country but a Continent
    Continent Nigeria is sick and we all know it.
    Let us not be selfish
    Let us stop wallowing in that murky waters of self delusion that there is hope
    No, there can’t be hope when a presidential candidate threatens to spill blood
    Let us not remain permanent students in the school of ignorance
    Yes! And we all know it but pretend that all is well

    Nigeria is not a country but a Continent
    There is something inherently wrong with Nigeria and we all know it…
    That there is a long standing structural defect –
    A system designed to frustrate the best and encourage the worst
    Such is our ridiculous constitution – Making School Cert a minimum requirement for the highest office in the land
    But it was designed to accommodate a section of Nigeria
    Yes! And we all know it but pretend that all is well

    Nigeria is not a country but a Continent
    This is why from France – Belgium – Germany – Jordan – Niger Republic etc
    All citizens, especially the locals protest against Islamist terrorists after any attacks
    But in our Continent Nigeria, the protest is against the President
    Yes too..We see the opposition in alliance with incumbents to fight terrorists in other COUNTRIES
    But in CONTINENT Nigeria, the opposition sabotages every effort to fight terrorists
    In some cases they opposition canvasses for the bizarre – ‘amnesty’ for murderous terrorists.

    Nigeria is not a country but a Continent
    Oh our Nigeria! Bequeathed to us without consultation
    When will we have courage to dismember?
    That all may prosper according to his own pace…That all may live without bombs here and there
    That those who love backwardness may be on permanent reverse gear
    That beauty pageants may be held once again without bloodshed in any country which so desires
    That a sick President will feel comfortable to receive get well visit from his/her Vice President

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    I just do not think time should be spent deliberating on this worthless piece of malicious rubbish audio. The APC instead of communicating with the Nigerian masses vis a vis the Presidential election,they are busy instigating blackmail and defections.

    Meanwhile the PDP are busy doing real campaign and when the APC are defeated,their tyrant and his band of violent followers will start blood-bath.

    • Wise Head

      Buhari should openly renounce violence and ask to be held personally responsible if his supporters shed any bloood. If Buhari is waiting to unleash violence when he loses (because he knows he will lose), he should start with himself and his family, and not waste the lives of callously brainwashed almajiris in the North. He should kill himself first to prove he is a real fundamentalist.

  • Larry

    Dear Editor,

    Straight to the point, Buhari wants to take power by force, if not by the ballot.
    President Jonathan is not ignorant. He knows what ‘dog-and-baboon’ means.
    Muhammadu Buhari will lose at the polling booth and lose on the battle-field.
    It’s as simple as that. I pity the naive Jihadists who accept to be cannon fodder.

  • Wise Head

    This election will not be won with the multiple postings here by APC e-rats. The people out there will vote and decide whom they want as their president. Buhari should openly renounce violence and ask to be held personally responsible if his supporters shed any bloood. If Buhari is waiting to unleash violence when he loses (because he knows he will lose), he should start with himself and his family, and not waste the lives of callously brainwashed almajiris in the North.

    Sometimes I find it hard to understand the type of journalism PT is practicing in Nigeria———–they often throw the ethics of the profession-into the gutter -of their conscience that is if they have any————then rely on the janjaweed thoughts of APC————-to enable them twist facts into fiction—————in the first place I do not even understand why FFK should trouble his soul over this rubbish————-The president and FFK including the courts are saying the same thing——————the voice recording of what transpired at the said event for which APC paid Captain Kilo–to lie is fake—That is why the captain is on the run——–There was nothing like plans by the Governor and the humans mentioned to rig the elections in Ekiti state—–period—–At least the Editors in Premium Times should have taken the trouble to read what the court said on the matter-if APC is now depending on the verdict of the Appeal court to say government should not use soldiers to provide security for the forth-coming elections————–then why cant APC accept the findings of the court on the issue of the fake tape———? why is APC trying to twist facts into fiction———-with a view to deceiving members of the public that Buhari never travelled out of NIGERIA TO SEEK MEDICAL HELP-in London——————having being in charge of PTF for over 6 years—–he should have left a legacy in the area of equipping our hospitals—Even the road leading to Daura–his village–in Katsina state was built by Jonathan—————–Happily-FFK and the President are saying the same thing–the—-tapes are fake————–kalas–

    NIGER DELTA – ARISE & DEMAND YOUR OWN COUNTRY. NOW!!!

    We have been told of the secret accounts of Nigerian politicians, past and present as revealed by Swiss Leaks in the HSBC scandal. Names have been mentioned with gory details of staggering amounts stashed away in foreign accounts – all monies of the raped Niger Delta Republic. Last week, it was the Halliburton bribe scandal. Names were mentioned too.

    But we will not hear of APC calling that those mentioned in both cases be prosecuted. Liar Mohamed has lost his voice. Could this be bcos there was no Chief Ibori or Sir Alams involved in those scandals/fraud cases? Is it bcos there was no Stella Odua or Diezanni (beautiful eyes) mentioned in the reports? Haba! …Nigeria! …Is this how we fight corruption?

    So some people have license to steal in Nigeria and the news media will forget. While if others dare, the same news media houses will feature such reports EVERYDAY of the year as was the case with Stella Oduah. Thief no be thief ? But they all maintain a crude code of silence now bcos Great Jona was not in power then…When Great Jona says corruption is not stealing, people will say they don’t understand the parable. Nonsense! See una life?

    This is why the Niger Delta must rise up and demand CHANGE. Yes! Change – Demand for sovereignty and control of all resources found on its land, water and air ….Hipicor-hipicor-hipicortor!

  • Arewabetter

    What? I Thought the drastic decline in Mr. Goodluck’s popularity had quietened Mr. Fani-Kayode. Well, it appears to me that I rather committed a grievous and monstrous mistake by thinking so. His continuous appearance on the political scene will just further exacerbate the degradation of the already tarnished political image of Mr. Goodluck. The cartoon below reminds me of the “goat and yam palaver”

    • DY

      Ok——at least you agree that he is popular.

      • Arewabetter

        Rather notorious to make Mr. Goodluck unpopular and inconspicuous.

        • DY

          “…to make Mr. Goodluck unpopular and inconspicuous.”

          Why not speak in your native Ijebu? Instead of disgracing your English teacher in a public domain like this…. I have a working knowledge of all dialects of the Yoruba language.

          • Arewabetter

            Mr. DY, in order not to engage in any unfruitful discussion with you, I have decided to just give you a little lesson. Enjoy it! Here it goes: GMB, MARCH to mash them up come March 28th! The wind of change is blowing very fast and no amount of intimidation or rigging will change its direction. Nigerians have spoken and the whole world has spoken by saying NO to the preservation of the status quo in Nigeria. Enormous and gargantuan shame, humiliation and disgrace to Nigeria and Nigerians have been done under the poor or non-governance of the PDP. What has become of the discombobulated and troubled giant called Nigeria? How long and how much of disaster as well as atrocities and calamities can be brought upon Nigerians by the PDP party that has been in government for more than 16 years? Corruption in Nigeria under the rule of PDP has eaten away the psyche of the nation in the form of eroded confidence of the people in government. Massive corruption has been present for more than 16 years on the political scene in Nigeria like many nations, and the nation has become weak slowly by its weight. Nigerians are sick and tired of thievery, robbery, embezzlement as well as the practice of tribalism, nepotism, favouritism and so many other negative PDP features. The party which has ruled the Republic of Nigeria for more than 16 years has remained progressively more INSENSITIVE to the menace of total corruption. Thanks to the Almighty, we now know that PDP is a nefarious, villainous and sinking ship and is totally finished! The time for a thorough change has matured. General Mohammadu Buhari is here to salvage the nation. Although GMB has risen to STAR on the political scene, but he will face a rough road in the coming days due to PDP’s unpardonable dirty campaign. GMB has IMPECCABLE CREDENTIALS to carry on his Herculean fight against the deeply entrenched monster of corruption. GMB is an anointed David to fight against a Goliath in the form of the PDP Party, which has accumulated and imbibed the power of politics for more than 16 years. GMB carries the true wish and support from all walks of life, which PDP has failed to muster for the same task. Time will tell how this David in the person of GMB would succeed in taming the monster of corruption and diminishing the image of Goliath on the Nigerian political scene. Time for change has finally arrived and I hope this time my fellow Nigerians will not SCREW it up. Vote for change! Vote for the future of your children! Vote for safety and security! Vote for the assurance that your children will have a better future than you do now! Vote for a just and fair Nigeria! Vote for wealth redistribution and end hunger and malnutrition in Nigeria! Defeat the old deal and its reckless spending! Vote out the party that hangs PETTY THIEVES, but appoints the GREAT ONES to public office! What PDP has been doing to Nigerians for the past 16 years reminds me of Tolstoy’s statement, namely, “In order to get power and retain it, it is necessary to love power; but love of power is not connected with goodness but with qualities that are the opposite of goodness, such as pride, cunning and cruelty.” Defeat this wickedness now! PDP has been in power for more than 16 years and during this time all that Nigeria and Nigerians have encountered and experienced is total regress of the nation. May God protect Nigeria and Nigerians from further PDP atrocities and calamities! Amen!!!

    BEHOLD: INDIVIDUALS & REGIONS THAT DESTROYED NIGERIA!!!

    No of yrs in Presidency from 1960 – 2015 by Regional Distribution
    ===============================================
    North = 39 yrs (9 presidents = Balewa,Gowon, Muritala,Shagari,Buhari,Babangida,Abacha,Abdulsalam,YarAdua,)
    West = 11 yrs (2 Presidents = Obasanjo, Shonekan)
    East = 0 yrs (Nil)
    South = 4 yrs (1 President = Jonathan)

    Behold the names of individuals and regions that ran Nigeria aground in every and all ways. Do you want a repeat of the last 5 decades? Do you want the same methods and people from the past? The choice is yours. Shine your eyes! Vote wisely. Forget about the threats. Vote wisely. When that time comes, if anything is thrown at you, throw it back to source twice as strong. This is the way.

    • Good governance has nothing to do with the region the Presidents came from but with each’s equitable performance. That is why Jonathan is unarguably the most corrupt and least performing President ever. What does that tell you, Mr. Bigoted Ethnocentrist?.

      • Kimono

        Read your comment to urself, and you will agree with me that trick does not work anymore. This is 2015 where people who walk on wooden bridges in the Niger Delta can use their mobile phones to view the Chinese blasting rocks before constructing bridges in Abuja…can read the reports of offshore accounts held by abokis & Oluwoles from oil deals, …and so on…

        Your logic is illogical…and Jonathan is corrupt? Did you say so? How could he be responsible for the corruption from 1960 – 2011? ….So u see what drugs can do to you? Stop smoking and lead a normal life

    • Mohstone

      It seems the ffk-virus is fast spreading into your head. From 1960-66 it was Nnamdi Azikwe who was the president then. But am sure you are trying hard to show how ignorant you’re about true history.

    Buhari’s North does not have monopoly of violence. Don’t allow the fear of violence to make you vote for him. If he loses and his brainwashed supporters unleash violence, they shall be defeated like Boko Haram (their brothers and sisters in the North East) is being trashed now. Don’t allow the fear of violence make you vote for Buhari.

    • Solodu Patric

      Then tell me why I should vote for Jonathan…

    • Mohstone

      Shit-Head … it seems you are already infected with ffk-virus.

    It is absurd people listened to the audio tape and still mischievously question the intention of the men who gathered in that room that day. People want to hear the word rigging in the conversation before accepting the very obvious. In the first place, why were these men meeting in a hotel room? If their intentions were honourable, why wasn’t APC representatives not in that meeting as well as members of the press? Why was Fasoye in that audio tape talking about stickers? What were the stickers for? In the audio tape, it was clearly explained, to safeguard their passages or movement on election day. In other word, to enable rigging. What about the INEC result sheets and other forms samples acknowledged by Fayose he was given by INEC officials for? Again to write redults, is that not rigging paraphernalia? Why was Fayose imploring the Brigadier to arrest opposition politicians especially the campaign director of Fayemi. To send fear across while intimidating the opposition. Again the desired result is to facilitate rigging. Everything discussed in that meeting happened before and on election day and the result anticipated was wholly achieved. Ekiti gubernatorial elections was rigged. QED. What is this dog Femi Fani Kayose talking about. Why is PDP so callous with very delicate issues. Why are men in very high places lying so stupidly. We must stand on change. It is so clear these circus characters are hell bent on destroying Nigeria. They have stole us to poverty, hunger and diseases. They have brought deaths, maimed and injured Nigerians in such way that it will generations to repaire the damages. For sixteen years, they have lied and are still lying with foams on their mouths. It is still a theatre of the absurd. A dumb president that is still denying what the main actors have admitted. Should we in clear conscience allow this man to continue to mess us up. The answer is a resounding and capital NO.

  • mayor

    Giving this guy called ffk attention on the media really is a waste of scarce resources and valuable time. Is it possible for the press to ignore him any time he called a press conference? It just very obvious that this man is only looking for what to eat. We know him and his antecedents. Unfortunately, we heard that this character flows in the family; his great grand and immediate father played this kind of politics. We will stop you and your children;ffk

    Because Islam is a religion of peace at least 25 people are killed and 30 injured in a multiple bomb attack in the east Libyan town of al-Qubbah, according to local sources.

    Elsewhere in Somalia some 20 people, including senior officials, have been killed in an attack on a hotel in the Somali capital, witnesses have told the BBC. The Central Hotel, often frequented by politicians, was hit by a car bomb and a suicide attack. Gunmen then stormed the hotel mosque and opened fire during Friday prayers An MP and Mogadishu’s deputy mayor were among the dead, the government says. Islamist militant group al-Shabab has said it was behind the attack

    I believe Mr. Femi Fani Kayode should not be given attention by the media because his own personal integrity is still being questioned. If he can switch from debasing the PDP to being their spokesperson in the blink of an eye then he has no right to judge GMB who he was once belived to be the best presidential candidate then he has no right in political matters. At least he can admit that the audio was not a fabrication.

  • They say: “For every lie you tell, you need a hundred others to cover it up.” PDP, Personality Defamation Party, up to your professional word-smiths like Femi Fanikayode to forge cover-up fabrications.

  • Guguru

    Femi Fani Kayode is a glorified beggar. He will say anything to anyone to get his next meal. People need to take this into account. He is not ranting mindlessly as most people think. The man is hungry and he needs to eat.

    He should tell us what the Gentile men were discussing in a Hotel room more that ti rig elections in Ekiti State. The question now is why are the FANI-KAYODE always rebel in Nigeria politics?

    On three previous occasions 2003,2007 and 2011 Buhari contested for the presidency of these country and was rejected by the southern electorates including our SW brothers. Most noteworthy was the number of votes he got in 2003 in the sw when he contested against obasanjo. My question now is why did the sw people reject Buhari in 2003 when they had the very opportunity of ‘ending’ corruption in 2003?If they know Buhari had all the qualities they now ascribe to him why then did they reject him for a corruption personified obasanjo?

    • Etomi

      Brilliant

    • wode

      This is a question that I know bothers GEJ’s mind and that of those around him. This is not really about SW, it’s in deed about all Nigerians. And by the way, SW people are one of the most sophisticated and well-informed set of people in Nigeria when it comes to election. They know the right place to put their votes. They are not easily deceived neither are they easily sold out by monetary power. The cultural value system is always held at high esteem.

      You should also remember that the SW people did not vote for OBJ in 1999 despite the fact that his candidature was designed to pacify the Yorubas as a backdrop of the Annulled June 12 election. The issue this time around, unlike 2011 when GEJ got sympathy votes, is that, they looked back and they discovered that the level of corruption has reached an unprecedented height, impunity knows no bound, despite trillions spent on power generation, they couldn’t get the power supply, the insecurity remains a nightmare.

      These are people that have seen what is happening at the state level where the opposition Government are in charge. They see the level of development and they feel there has to be a change at the center for better life to be experienced.

      Above all, SW is a unique region, in the sense that in a single family, you can see people of different faiths – Muslims, Christians, and even idol-worshipers – they all live in peace among themselves. Now seeing a Government/Party coming to turn them against one another all in the name of politics get them bewildered and disturbed. They would rather go for a unifying movement than to be with the divisive people. It’s seems the change, this time around, is inevitable!

    The Yorubas are sell outs and they will ever remain sell-outs. those who sold their son Awolowo out, they sold Abiola out . tell me who they cannot sell out. now even GEJ would soon buy them. When people believe they are wise but loves money, it is very easy to buy them out. A Yoruba man installed GEJ. GEJ for 6years ignored the Yorubas and now he is busy bribing them and they are happy. If even GEJ can buy the Yoruba out then what else?

    • CONSCIENCE

      So you like it when Jonathan hides things from Nigeria. You are an anarchist!

    • Bayonle

      I am sure you are talking about “Yorubas” who get Goodluck Jonathan OIL money like Yinka Odumakin, Gov Mimiko of Ondo state, Ganiyu Adams, of OPC who is always looking for something to eat, Femi Okunronmu, the Fasonranti (in Akure, Ondo state) led collection of individuals called “Afenifere”,!, Olu Falae, Fasehun etc. Now if Goodluck Jonathan gave these people money, we Yorubas advise Jonathan to deal with these people. We Yorubas -middle class and grassroots-do not have any relationship with Goodluck Jonathan. You ought to know what the Yoruba middle class look like. We are well trained, cultured and cosmopolitan. So we instinctively reject mis-rule and mis-governance. hence you will see the Yorubas in APC behind Buhari/Osinbajo-who are symbols of good governance. And we the Yoruba middle class sensitize our people to align with a more ethically inclined team-Buhari/Osinbajo. So how is that a sell out? Go and collect your OIL money from Yinka Odumakin. Mimiko, Falae, Fasehun, Okuronmu, Fasoranti. We the Yoruba middle class and grassroots TOLD Goodluck Jonathan and PDP and the rest of Nigeria from DAY ONE where we are headed-which is the Buhari/Osinbajo GOOD GOVERNANCE way. So why is that difficult for you to accept?

    • K-KAY

      Your generalization is faulty and capable of diminishing whatever good point you may have intended to make. If you have monitored the mood of people of the south west regarding the coming elections , you would know that the ordinary yoruba individual is tired of the impunity, corruption, and ineptitude of Jonathan’s administration. It is only the few that are feeding fat from the looting the treasury that you can refer to in the manner you did. Let us desist from comments that will encourage ethnic and religious division, those are cheap tools of the pdp and we all know that they don’t mean well for the country. APC has made it clear on several occasions that it has not brought ethnicity and religion to the table and that’s quite acceptable. I’m an Ibo, i believe in the change which Buhari/Osinbajo ticket offers. And by the grace of God, March4Buhari is a dream that is sure to come to pass.
