APC threatens to sue Fani-Kayode over Al Qaeda, ISIS claim

Femi Fani-Kayode

The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation has threatened to sue President Goodluck Jonathan campaign spokesperson, Femi Fani-Kayode, for claiming that the APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, is getting funding for his election campaign from terrorist groups, such as the outlawed Boko Haram, Al-Qaeda and ISIS. 

In a statement released in Abuja on Saturday, the organisation accused Mr. Fani-Kayode of perpetuating religious politics, and gave him one week to retract his defamatory comments or face the law. 

“Never before in Nigeria’s history has the issue of religion been applied to such sinister purposes as we have seen during the years of President Jonathan’s government,” said Garba Shehu, Director of Media and Publicity of the APC presidential campaign organisation. “When all fails, they whip out the religious card.”

The campaign organisation however expressed relief that Nigerians were no more being fooled by what it called “this PDP game”.

According to the group, Mr. Buhari has transcended all the religious smears and, together with his running mate, Yemi Osinbajo, who is a pastor, has been able to show the Nigerian people that Nigeria’s growth and development is not about religion, but about a genuine desire to change the lot of the country’s citizens and move the entire nation forward. 

“A majority of the world’s Muslims, including Buhari, do not approve of the Al-Qaeda, and being Muslim does not translate into being pro-ISIS,” the group added. “Again and again, Buhari has shown commitment to ridding our country of these vermin who claim to be killing in the name of Allah, but who, in actual fact, are messengers of Satan.”  

The APC said it will ask the court next week to confiscate Mr. Fani-Kayode’s international passport by way of injunction. 

“There are some campaigners who obviously intend to escape from Nigeria after the handover of government from Jonathan to Buhari on May 29.  That must be the reason why they can boldly make many of the reckless, irresponsible and defamatory statements that they have been mouthing off so flippantly throughout this campaign season. Either that or these people do not believe in our country’s judicial system. They don’t believe that one day; it will catch up with them.”

The APC warned that it would not extend the seven-day deadline given to Mr. Fani-Kayode to retract his false allegations.

“Let me assure the PDP federal government that, under Buhari’s government, the judiciary will work. These men will be made to pay for all the many libel and fines the courts would hopefully issue for the crimes that their big mouths have committed.”

          Buhari has spoken defensively about Boko Haram, even though the evil group has kidnapped and
          enslaved hundreds of young girls. And he has been personally been selected by
          the terrorists to lead its negotiations with the government. “Western foreign policy observers pre-occupied with the rise of ISIS in the Middle East should wake up to the reality unfolding in Nigeria,” wrote Grenell, a former spokesman for four United States Ambassadors to the United
          Nations, most recently Ambassador Zal Khalilzad. “Buhari’s election as head of state would be a disaster for Africa. It would also signal trouble for the West’s fight against the Islamic State (ISIS)
          and terrorism throughout the Middle East. The decision by the 73 million registered Nigerian voters could have a profound impact on the future of Africa.” Buhari even appears to be advocating violence while pushing for the moral and religious code of Sharia Law, according to Grenell.

    Why is APC responding to comical Fanni? Do they not understand that by paying him mind, they are giving him credit?

    Look, I won’t be surprised if Comical Fanni makes a statement tomorrow that ‘Lagosians have not forgotten the ominous masterplan by General Buhari and His Deputy Idiagbon in collaborration with the rain maker (Majek Fashek) to drown all of the Yoruba’s in Lagos with rain and replace them with transplanted MUSLIMS from Saudi Arabia and Kilamjaro!’

    Just laugh and leave the mad man alone.

        Is it not thought provoking and revealing that the terror group nominated GMB to represent them in negotiations? If they don’t trust him as one of theirs, why would they nominate him???? Why should we take this matter for granted????? Must we run the risk of approving the campaign of Boko Horam by embracing GMB simply because we want to teach GEJ a lesson!!! How did we get to this level!!! God forbid!

    Foreign policy expert Richard Grenell has warned the Obama administration to “wake up” to the growing threat of Nigeria turning into an Islamic state, leading to other African nations also capitulating to Muslim extremists. In an opinion column for The Washington Times, Grenell revealed that a leading candidate in the Nigerian general election later this month is a sympathizer of the Boko Haram terror group and plans to install strict Sharia Law if he’s elected.

    FFK talks because APC gives a damn to his garbage. It is only when u pay attention to shit that u perceive its smell.

  • evi

    Why one week? Take him to court immediately! So that when everybody is in court, buhari will also explain why he fought against Jonathan proscription of boko haram as a terrorist organisation, he will also explain why he criticised Jonathan for killing boko haram members that any attack on boko haram is an attack on the north, he will also explain why he supports boko haram sharia cause, when he declared support for sharia at a seminar in kaduna, vowing to implement sharia in Every part of the country .

  • Garden-City Boy

    The JANJAWEED issues this threat everyday but does nothing. This is not the first, nor the second time FFK has tied Boko Haram and terrorism to these APC people. The response is empty threats and hot gas. Reminds one of Fella…..WAIT MAKE I COMMOT MY DRESS….NA SAKARA!!! APC no fit do nothing…..na shakara oloje!!!

    • tundemash

      APC should have ignored the druggie. Only the sick does not remeber what FFK said in the past and relates it to what he says now. This was your hero less than 3 months ago .

  • Arewabetter

    I have several times appealed to APC stalwarts not to waste too much of their energy and resources by responding to the mindless and shameless THING called femi fani-kayode. Just like his master, this THING lacks integrity and his head and ass are interchangeable. The cartoon below says everything about this shameless and outrageous THING, which lacks integrity.

    • ije2014

      This fani kayode is a shameful distraction. Like you said there should be no responses to his comments, especially one as ridiculous as this.

    That is a threat. Sign of what to come should Buhari becomes president. “Let me assure the PDP federal government that, under Buhari’s government, the judiciary will work. These men will be made to pay for all the many libel and fines the courts would hopefully issue for the crimes that their big mouth” Buhari will be President and judge to determine who goes to jail. Freedom of expression will be gone as it was in 1983.

  • CousinBrother

    I thought it was a YES or No question posed to Buhari?

    • tundemash

      Druggie Femi knows most of you suffer amnesia so he can say what he likes at any time as he knows you won’t remember what he told you previously ! Below was FFK on January 8 this year. Does that answer your question ?

      • CousinBrother

        Nope, it didn’t. Your posting here is completely irrelevant and illogical. Tell me, how many days do we have between January 8 and March 21? If you have not lost your thinking capabilities (that is if you have one at all), you would have known that a lot of things could have taken place between then and now. For example and to refresh your stuffed brain, Boko Haram did not declare loyalty to ISIS before January 8 but could you say the same today? On matters that border on logic, the one who asks question is never wrong, only the answers could be right or wrong. What FFK did was to ask question, he didn’t give any assertion and I hope you are intelligent enough to differentiate between the two. It is therefore left to your dummy presidential candidate to answer YES or NO to the questions, period. Not sure why you could not assimilate this simple thing into your stuffed head.

        • tundemash

          Cross-bred chimp… everything you said here is about conjecture … you are telling me “a lot of things could have taken place between between January 8 and March 21″ to warrant your druggie Femi to reach his conclusion. Cl0wn the question i will ask you is did Femi present you anything to that has changed between Jan. 8th and now to buttress his allegation. Is Femi not suppose to present the “a lot of things that could have happened” to the security agents to do their job instead of whipping the emotion of you feeble minds ?
          In your warped mind, it is the accused that has to prove his innocence and not the accuser that has to present facts to support his accusation.

          Like i said earlier, only the insane will answer druggie Femi’s drug-induced questions. The amnesty “awoof” will be stopped May 29th and it’s back to hopelessness for people like u.

    These people are always quick to threaten legal action. They use the court system to try and silence others, while they continue to think that they are immune to the same threat, in spite of their many wild accusations that are in print. It reminds me of those who wanted to take the former COAS to the ICC for fighting Boko Haram. They have turned Nigeria into a jungle.

    “Let me assure the PDP federal government that, under Buhari’s government, the judiciary will work.”’..Garba Shehu, Director of Media and Publicity of the APC’
    which judiciary is shehu talking about here? The same judiciary that Buhari locked up during his government and threw the keys away? If you were not born then or educated enough to know what is happening, why not take history lessons from your elders?
