APC thrives on lies, says Fani-Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayode

The Director of Media and Publicity of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has accused the opposition All Progressives Congress of “coming up with a different lie every day of the week”.

Mr. Fani-Kayode, who reacted to the APC’s allegation that the Federal Government and the PDP were planning to render the card readers ineffective on Election Day, said the allegation was wild and baseless.

The spokesperson of the APC, Lai Mohammed, had Monday issued a statement saying the Goodluck Jonathan Administration and the PDP was plotting to render card readers ineffective on Election Day, with a view to justifying their fears about the use of the device and ultimately to scuttle the polls.

Reacting, Mr. Fani-Kayode said the Federal Government and the PDP did not have any plans to sabotage the card readers and did not need to indulge in such “shady, sinister and tardy practices”.

“We view this wild and baseless allegation with amusement,” Mr. Fani-Kayode. “Frankly the APC deserves to be pitied. So desperate are they for power that their latest strategy is to come up with a different lie for every day of the week.

“They have lost control of their senses; their imagination has gone wild and they see things that are simply not there.

“This latest allegation is absurd; it is not rooted in truth; it is irrational and it is illogical. It is clear that the opposition are already preparing the grounds and making excuses for their own defeat.

“They are running scared and they are already preparing the minds of their supporters for their imminent failure at the polls.

“Instead of saying something tangible and attempting to ginger up and encourage their supporters, all they indulge in is giving them a daily dose of sub-standard fairy tales and dirty lies. They should stop all this nonsense and desist from making these wild and baseless allegations.

“President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP do not have any plans to sabotage the card readers and neither do we need to indulge in such shady, sinister and tardy practices.

“We look forward to the elections which will commence in two weeks time and we have no doubt that the overwhelming number of the Nigerian people will vote for our candidates and support our party.”

    FFK you started the lying scenery and now its paining you…those who live in glass house don’t throw stones..don’t start wat u cannot finished or control..bloody liar..shut up

  • Bigzy

    Fani Kayode and the PDP needs to react a bit more quickly than this. The statement was made last Monday and we have waited this long to hear a respnse. In spite of the fact that we know that it is false, a quick retort puts the allegation to bed sooner. Besides there is need to mainatin momentum both in going on the offensive and responding to bogus claims. In this regard, I think that Fayose is doing a very good job.

  • Tunsj

    Hearing this nonsense from Fani Kayode proves that PDP is a clueless and erratic party.

  • blackdove

    A drug addict like Femi cannot differentiate truth from lies. This man is totally shameless. A man without principles is no man. I pity your innocent children for having a useless father.

  • Ola Onanugaola

    Are these pictures also lying, “White” powder effect:

  • Dr.Dan

    It surprises me when people leave issues and start attacking personality. Femi Fani Kayode is doing what every Nigerian politician does. Cross carpeting base on interest.Nigerian politicians in general lack ideology, credibility and integrity, its always about personal interest.His problem is being too outspoken and attacking his opponent with every acid word in black and white. If Jimi Agbaja wins in Lagos don’t be surprise to see leading APC chieftains decamp to PDP its always about what they can get afterall “politics is about who gets what,when where and how”.Believe it or not FFK writing,oratory and lying skills is an asset in politics.

    • tundemash

      It surprises me when feeble minds claim politicians’ “writing,oratory and lying skills is an asset in politics” while they castigate those who point out the double-talk and dishonesty of such politicians.
      So many Port harcourt Degree holders scrambling for yams!


      Only in a country like ours will a mad man be speaking for anyone, talk less of the ruling party and a sitting government, and someone will be applauding him. FFK is simply not well, and no sane fellow will take him serious. To call him an asset to politics is to show that words have lost their meaning. Disgusting!


    APC said GEJ is working to postpone election, it came to pass. APC said GEJ and PDP are against card readers, it came to pass. APC said GEJ has paid ethnic militias to demonstrate against Jega, it came to pass when MASSOB and OPC did just that. APC said GEJ is not interested in free and fair elections, Nigerians can now see. So who is lying now? APC or PDP? Truth is constant

  • ibrahim

    So what can you say about it

  • Truth

    I dont think I can do this dirty job that Fani is doing. Believing something and defnding something else. Fani Kayode believes Jonathan is a failure and truly wants a change for the country but he has to stand on lies, defend lies, promote lies, and speak evil because of money. This is extreme hypocrisy. All his family members believe in APC and they will not vote for Jonathan. Fani knows this but he has to earn a dirty income. O ma se o.

  • Spoken word

    FFK has changed his positions so many times.he must be a porn star.

  • Concerned

    FFK is a man hooked on lies – if he goes one day without telling them he will suffer withdrawal symptoms – so have pity on him he knows not what he does!

    Globally, the power sector is undertaking a ‘Grand Transition’, as fossil fuel-based economies seek to diversify their energy portfolios, manage infrastructure investment and environmental responsibility, and support social programmes and well-being for the future.

    Of emerging nations in the spotlight, Nigeria is well-known for its vast oil reserves. Africa’s largest economy also boasts ample natural gas resources and a sufficient quantity and quality of mineral deposits to make clean-coal technology a viable proposition. However, the story does not stop there.

    Interest in Nigeria as a prospect for growth in renewable energy is also now building, with the investment community waking up to the potential – as evidenced by the $200 million Green Credit Line announced by the German Development Bank, KFW.

    This is no distant dream: Foreign money is already entering the market, with $30 billion of Korean investment set to generate 10,000 MW of solar power, and a $5 billion Canadian-Saudi Arabian joint-venture project that would generate 3,000 MW.

    Of course, a number of major players in the utilities sector have a long, ongoing track-record in Nigeria, including GE Power & Water. Its General Manager, Shaun D Wiggins points out: “GE has over 40 years in Nigeria. We are a committed partner and look forward to meeting the future power needs of Nigeria, from gas engines to their growing renewables generation.”

    Just to put that statement into perspective, 40 years ago, there was barely colour TV worldwide, never mind the internet, or mobile and digital technology. Wind turbines were nowhere to be seen and solar only common on spacecraft.

    While The Grand Transition will not occur overnight, neither will it wait long. According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, Sub-Saharan Africa saw more electricity capacity come online in 2014 in non-hydro renewable energy than during the first 13 years of the century.1 With climate change forcing the pace, the process of transition is accelerating and unstoppable.

    For key players like Nigeria, the enormity of this challenge is only matched by the richness of the opportunity, as Dr. Richard Munang, Africa Regional Climate Change Coordinator, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), explains:

    “Nigeria has immense renewable energy potential. Small hydro is estimated at 3,500 MW; in addition to wind, geothermal, biomass, and solar. By leveraging appropriate partnerships with investors to develop this potential, Nigeria will not only build human capacity and acquire new technology – all of which will contribute to growing this nascent sector and create additional jobs and GDP – but also enhance access to electricity in rural areas, thus contributing to improved livelihoods.”

    According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), at present only 219 million out of 915 million people in Africa have access to electricity.2 The cost effectiveness of solar, relative to kerosene, is key, concludes Dr. Munang:

    “Basic levels of affordable access to electricity through off-grid solar will provide lighting to power household-level enterprises, communications, healthcare, and education – all of which are substantive components in improving the earning capacity of rural communities to enable them to afford food and alleviate hunger.”

    From this perspective, the Grand Transition can do more for Nigeria than just mitigate and ameliorate impacts, it can also create and stimulate social and environmental improvements – with the economy a winner on all counts. This multiplier effect, for business, industry and markets, represents the true sustainable power and promise of Nigeria.
