Fani-Kayode denies attacking Jonathan, says, “I remain President’s reliable ally”

Femi Fani-Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayode, the Director of Media and Publicity to President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign has issued the statement below to debunk speculations that he had turned against the president just few days after Mr. Jonathan lost the presidential election.

Mr. Fani-Kayode said he continued to hold Mr. Jonathan in high esteem and that the statement being circulated represented his views when he was a member of the All Progressives Congress.

FEMI FANI-KAYODE STILL HOLDS PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN IN VERY HIGH ESTEEM

Our attention has been drawn to a report titled “Fani-Kayode blasts Jonathan; says President is leaving legacy of ‘destruction and disaster’”, being circulated in the social media, and wish to put the records straight once and for all.

The statement being referred to was lifted from media reports of April 25, 2013 (two years ago), during the sojourn of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode in the All Progressives Congress (APC). The report does not, in any way, represent Chief Femi Fani-Kayode’s opinion of President Jonathan whom he holds in very high esteem, a fact that made the former Minister of Aviation work so vigorously for Mr President as Director, Media and Publicity of his campaign organization in the just concluded presidential election. The relentless efforts of Chief Fani-Kayode in the course of the campaigns have been acknowledged by Mr President as well as the generality of Nigerians. The cordial relationship that exists between them is exemplary and legendary.

We are very much aware that the reason for this latest round of unwarranted scheme by enemies of Nigeria is to sow the seed of discord and create acrimony between the president and one of his most reliable allies in particular, and in the PDP in general. But their plans have since failed!

We therefore call on all those who are behind this show of shame and advise them in the strongest terms possible, to desist from such acts of cowardice, wickedness, preposterousness and puerility as they blow no one any good wind. We also call on all patriotic and well-meaning Nigerians to ignore such reports and treat them as non-existent whether now or any other time in the future.
Mr President is our leader and Chief Femi Fani-Kayode holds him in very high esteem, accord him the respect he deserves and is very proud to be associated and to have worked for him. The relationship between these two great men remains cordial. No degree of campaign of calumny by misguided elements can change this very fact!

    Yeap, the same way you were a RELIABLE all of the APC just a few months back… dirty political whore!

  • amazing2012

    Shamed to you loser !

  • Rotimi Lawanson

    I dont expect anything less from FFK.. ..always true to form.
    PDP clowns were so busy chasing shadows instead of calling FFK to order for his scathing attacks on Jonathan on Nairaland under the pseudonym cramjones while serving as the PDP media campaign chief. God forbid APC accepts him back into its fold.

  • Lenz

    “Jude Ndukwe”…

    It must be Igbo man that will agree to be Special Assistant to somebody like FFK…

    Follow the smell of money, you hear?

  • Ado Masoyi

    People like FFK spoilt the show for the outgoing president

    • Samadani

      But he deserved it for parading rogues and unrepentant drug addicts as image makers.

  • Allayes

    Ah, dis one pass me o! Femi Fani-Kayode get SA? To do what exactly?

    • Du Covenant

      My broda, this Nigeria for you. The fact that such a hooligan is even called a ‘chief’ baffles me!..

    • Avner Hofmann

      If you read the original article and study it very well, you will not blame ffk but premium times and the person called Nenna Ibe who posted the message. The message was broadcast early in 2013 when ffk was in APC.I think Nenna Ibe and premium times should be taken to court for misleading Nigerians and damaging the character of ffk.

  • Arabakpura

    I blame Jonathan for consorting with renegades and criminals. FFK has no god! he is simply a mercenary who does not care about anybody or anything but himself. The same can be said of Jonathan anyway! Two birds of a kind feather!

  • True Nigerian

    Well, it won’t be long before you, Femi, will attack Jonathan. That is who and who you are, and you have no capacity to be anything else, but a vile poisonous lying self-seeking hypocrite who will even abuse anybody and anything if that is what you need to do in order to get what you want to get.
    Buhari will be an idi0t if he doesn’t send you to jail on grounds of your grand corruption and crimes against this country. Your latest crime is the announcement of fake results to cause mayhem in the country.
    If I were the president or the Attorney-General of this country, people like you would be forgotten, because you will be in a jail where nobody, except your family, remembers you.

  • Sonny Martin

    So what else is new?

  • SAM .A

    Looking deeper into Nigerian politics, the political merchants have a common denominator, vulgarity, double speak,dishonesty,love of money ,hate of service to humanity , only service to their pockets.
    This is the only thin that made Jude.C. Ndukwe to be SA to Femi Fanikayode ,a loquacious , non principled man of the Year 2015.

  • Rommel

    The move back to APC for this character has just begun,did anyone accuse him of ATTACKING Jonathan? a “nwinch” will always see spirits where none is existing

    • Samadani

      The last time I checked, Oga Jona was the presido in 2013. So what could have gone wrong if the statement made by FFK in 2013 is republished in 2015? Please, clear your mind, FFK has no shame. Like Babasanjo said, give him food he will dance for you.

  • sammyctu ode

    I am sure the thug, weed smoker, omo ale, omo ti ko ni eko (bastard & boy without manners) would have sent emissaries to Asiwaju and other APC Chiefs how they can take him back but we don’t want this deranged boy in the midst of Nigerians, He belongs to Kuje prison.

  • maikano bashir yola

    People like Fani could say more than what he was reportedly said. After all if he could say such an unsavory remark about a sitting President in 2013 what stopped him in repeating it now since the game has changed. Is it not said that a fair weather politician has always two mouths in dealing with people.
