Fani-Kayode congratulates Aregbesola for defeating Omisore “convincingly”

Femi Fani-Kayode

For the last two weeks I have been in the field in Osun state campaigning for my friend, brother and kinsman and my party’s candidate in the governorship election, Senator Iyiola Omisore. It has been a gruelling yet wonderful experience and I am very proud to have been part of the team and so deeply involved.

It is now 7.00a.m. in the morning and the final results of those elections have just been formally announced by INEC. They are as follows. Governor Rauf Aregbesola of the APC polled 394,684 votes whilst Senator Iyiola Omisore of the PDP polled 292,747 votes. It is clear from the foregoing that Aregbesola has not only won but he has also won convincingly.

I hereby congratulate him and his party on their victory. I commend INEC for conducting a free and fair election in which there was no rigging. I commend the security agencies for maintaining law and order and ensuring that no-one was killed or maimed.

I salute the courage of my friends and colleagues in the PDP in Osun state for putting up a good fight. I thank my kinsmen and the good people of my district, zone and hometown Ile-Ife particularly for standing by the PDP in this election and delivering virtually all the votes in their four local government areas to our son and candidate Senator Iyiola Omisore.

This is democracy and the will of the people must be respected. You win some and you lose some yet the struggle continues. Though we lost this one we are not deterred. As a matter of fact the battle has just started and we are deeply encouraged and touched by the massive suppport that we received from many quarters.

We shall continue to proudly fly the flag of the PDP and we shall continue to work and fight for a better Nigeria. God bless the good people of Osun state. God bless Nigeria.

    Faniweed. After some ‘pipes’ and gulps, he changes to another song. He is not the governorship candidate but he has congratulated the winner on behalf of his party. What a chameleon and attention seeker! The leader of PDP called these people ‘rascals’. A rascal is somebody who does not know what to do in the afternoon even if he had promised something else in the morning. It is only in Nigeria where these group of political rascals have no evidence of what they do to earn a living in their useless and miserable life of sycophancy.

    • Dan

      Thanks Amaka, Faniweed is like his father. Maybe you never read or heard about the politics of the Western region in the 60s. His father was a chamelon, seeking for attention and power not minding killing and maiming innocent people in the process. Nobody should take him seriously, he is a product of a violent man.

      • Onike24

        again a cautionary tale against seeking of power at all costs. Fani power is long dead can anyone point to a single child of his that is doing well? one a drug addict, one died of AIDS, one a political beggar despite having a Public school/Oxbridge education! He who sows the wind………………………… May God teach us to know that the things we do today will have consequences tomorrow.

  • Monkeyano

    Fani Kayode, will you just shut the hell up?!
    Who the hell do you think you are to jump the gun and issue congratulatory message to your contender when your principal is yet to release any statement?
    Trying to swallow your pride for being trounced by a man you and your party resented with disdainful scorn?
    What are you trying to achieve?
    Oh, you want to look like a gentle man when the world knows your true identity?
    Your are an unstable, two-timing scoundrel, a pathetic scumbag, a loser, a scalawag, attention seeking son of a nonentity!
    Go to hell!

  • Okache

    Good but it is very late for you dear countryman. You have lost all your credibility. In sane climes such as in Europe and the United States, you are finished politically. By jumping from PDP to APC and then back to PDP just like just another of your fellow countryman, Atiku, it shows clearly that something is fundamentally wrong with you ideologically. It shows you are a pitiable fellow without principles. A man without integrity is as good as dead and that is what you are finished. You deserve pity really. In normal societies, you remain in your political party and clean the mess, you don’t move around as prostitute which is what you and Atiku Abubakar and your likes in Nigeria political terrain are. Joining a political party in civilized societies demand you thoroughly go through the manifesto and it is akin to the “till death do us part” in Christian marriage. I have read several of your articles while you were still bedding APC, how you called Mr. President “flowery” names. Some extracts maybe will help you realize how empty and unreliable you are; devoid of integrity. I hope your beloved brothers and friends in PDP, keeps their eyes very open because you cannot be trusted. Extracts dear Prostitute, “I have
    said it before and I shall say it again, Nigeria has become an abattoir of
    human flesh and blood under the tenure of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan
    and all those who support him should bury their heads in shame. The blood of
    all those innocent people is on his hands because he swore to an
    oath before God and the Nigerian people to protect them from such
    evil.” (January 2014) Again, you quoted Bonaparte where he stated incompetence should not be substituted for conspiracy and then former British Prime Minister referring to another former minister as “weak, weak, weak” all in your bid to capture what Nigeria has been reduced to under your now beloved messiah, the honourable, venerable Goodluck Jonathan. You wrote so many “nice” things about Mr. President and to finish this very dear brother of yours in another scathing article you penned this ” A
    President who has abdicated his responsibilities, destroyed his own political
    party, divided his own country, alienated his own friends, humiliated his own
    mentor, abandoned his own people, brought ridicule to his own faith, cowers
    before his own officials, betrays his own governors, scorns the international
    A President who does not even have the nerve or the guts to call to order any
    of the numerous Jezebels that control him. He is the problem we have in our
    country today and until he resigns, is impeached or is voted out of power
    nothing will change and Nigeria will continue to go from bad to worse. That is
    what you get when you vote for a man who never wore shoes to school.” ( JONATHAN,
    TUKUR AND A GOVERNMENT OF JEZEBELS’, Premium Times, 19th January, 2014). Hmmmmm! Fani Fani…hmmmm. Such a sudden change of heat, perhaps a sudden conversion on the road to Aso Rock. Fani, Fani, na wa o!

    • Bunduma Mohammed

      FK has jumped ship because of EFCC. He has no moral nor character. I believe he is a liaibilty to PDP if they would ever realise it.

    • Lanre

      Thank you, Okache.How do you congratulate a “Terrorist.”? Abi. Shebi he said APC and Aregbesola are supporters of Boko Haram. As they say “Omo o le jo baba e, ka ma binu omo…” A fruit does not fall far from the tree. Some people have no self-respect and so they do not know when to keep quiet.

  • Gideon Orkar

    That is the spirit FFK. You win some you loose some.

    • Bunduma Mohammed

      FKK would never win anything anywhere anytime because he is a lunatic.

      • baba

        u are within your rights to disagree with ffk but i think the insults is unneccessary


      FFK is a loser!!!

  • Dorcas

    Belly politician…. you are finished already… good to see you kiss the dusts.

    • Olu Ade

      Prior the election, Fani-Kayode had tweeted a scathing statement against APC, vowing that his party would win. “Today the rulership of the cult of blood, the Almajiri, the Janjaweed, Boko Haram and the Nigerian Taliban ends in Osun state.”

      “When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance you don’t really have to do anything, you just let them talk,” Obama (April 27, 2014)

      Femi Fani-Kayode, a typical Nigerian politician – no principles, no ideology, large mouth, jump on whatever bandwagon for relevance.This guy turns around like a spinning barber chair in his quest to dance to his Pay master. He is young but he behaves like the old rejected politicians who knows nothing other than to divide the people along ethnic lines but will associate with any politician for his selfish and bias motives.

      Thank you, keep talking, we know you are a wolf in a sheep skin.

      Thank you, keep talking, we know you are a wolf in a sheep skin.

      • Dorcas

        Bros.. this man is suffering from acute mental problem.

  • Wähala

    No Comment!
    No sane person should comment on anything coming from Fani Oloja… bcos whenever he opens his mouth: sh*t falls out!


    This guy is thoroughly sick. Feigning magnanimity will not make people to forget how he tried to use religion to sway the outcome of the election in favour of the PDP. He went to Osun to call the APC a military wing of Boko Haram. Now that he has been repudiated, he is here engaging in sophistry. Shameless FFK should know when to talk and went not to talk. Loser!

    And this: The use of religion to divide Nigerians has failed. PDP should look for another strategy ahead of next year’s general elections

    • redeem

      APC have published a list of reasons justifying Aregbesola’s victory: Political machinery/campaign strategy, support from all ex-Osun governors, MILITARYpresence, several projects, grassroots support, the late Bola Ige, religion, most importantly (larger population of Muslims in OSUN state must have added to the victory of Aregbesola), that is what they said- support of the APC governors and chieftains//LASTLY THE ELECTION RIGGING MACHINE OF APC/which led Sharia Reporters PT among APC controlled media outlets to announce the result b4 INEC did/

  • Bunduma Mohammed

    Since you have boxed yourself in Ife into minority, you should henceforth forget the governorship position since you cannot vote for somebody who everybody aknowledged has performed than you as well count yourself out permanently. Credit for the victory should go to John Oyegun and APC for their vigillance and discovery of PDP rigging strategy few days before the election. This is what would be used in 2015 to route our irresponsible and currupt political party PDP. Now shame to you Fani Kayode and Ooni of Ife for supporting a murderer in the name of son of the soil.

    • redeem

      i begi make we hear better words–those scary lies– they told about election manual being discovered-one of the biggest problem PDP has is that of not responding quick enough to attacks by APC—————–they have a terrible media team–instead of being on the attack they wait for APC to take the fight to them

  • Dodon Doya

    I am glad very comment seeks to portray FFK as silly and even insane. We should continue to shame FFK and his likes for a better Nigeria.

  • Mike Adams

    Bury your face in shame FFK. The janjaweed has won. I am wondering why the people chose the janjaweed then your brother… I am so grateful for your moving to PDP and your bokoharam friend Ali Modu Sherif (SAS)…. With people like you gone APC forward ever!!!!!…. The former aviation minister did better then you by far as the Aviation minister…Now u dey follow follow GEJ for position what an Irony….

    • redeem

      because APC rigged the Osun election period–they stole victory from omisore–who won election while in jail–haba

      • Tonnero

        You are a senseless buffoon. APC rigged with all the troops that Jonathan deployed to intimidate people?

  • Ayemi

    This is an unstable character. He only goes where he can chop chop chop!!! The reason why he needs to keep jumping from one party or the other is still unclear. I just pity these useless politicians who depend on what they will eat and steal from their country and not what they are ready to give back or contribute to the advancement of their country. It is a pity!!!

  • redeem

    he was too quick to congratulate them- APC riggers-its still Ok-sha-nonetheless-FFK did not say APC won convincingly–i begi

  • zacchaeus Akinleye

    A better Nigeria is possible without the input of scramblers like you. Less than 10 hours ago you said your vote tally had Omisore ahead. Osun is a better place without a shady character like you.

  • Onike24

    well said! hear, hear!

  • EPO


  • odiate obong

    spoken like a true democrat

  • ismail umar

    He may be guilty of whatever anyone wants to call him but he has done the very right thing. Nobody wins always.

  • john micheals

    people are quick to attack the messenger but ignore the message, when people put aside rivalry and embrace a loss, they deserve a little atom of respect. whatever he may have done in the past doesn’t concern me, BUT this act is RIGHT and we must acknowledge that.
