Arrest Fani-Kayode now, Senator Aliero tells security agencies

Femi Fani-Kayode

A former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Adamu Aliero, on Tuesday called on security agencies to arrest Femi Fani-Kayode, the director of publicity of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organization, for falsely claiming that the PDP had won the presidential election in 23 states.

Mr. Aliero made the call while responding to questions from journalists in Birnin Kebbi, the Kebbi state capital, on his victory at the senatorial election in the state.

Mr. Aliero was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress for Kebbi Central Senatorial District.

Mr. Aliero said it was reckless and irresponsible for Mr. Fani-Kayode to have made such a “stupid statement”.

“Fani-Kayode is supposed to be arrested because such people can cause mayhem in this country,” the former minister said.

He urged Nigerians to ignore such inflammatory statements because they could cause crisis in the country.

He said the only body empowered by the Constitution and Electoral Act to declare election result is INEC.

“Where you have two results being released, the INEC one and that of the fraudulent one by so called Fani-Kayode with the intent to rig the election, there can be confusion.”

He said the introduction of Card Readers by INEC in the conduct of elections is a revolution.

“It has completely eliminated electoral fraud. This is because previous elections were marred by election fraud,” the Senator said.

He expressed satisfaction with the conduct of election in the state and called on INEC to retain the use of Card Reader and if possible, improve on lapses recorded during the presidential election.

He expressed appreciation to God and the people of the state for his reelection to the Senate and for their support throughout the electioneering campaign.

“We were in PDP just about four months ago and all of a sudden we changed to APC because of injustice manifested throughout the conduct of primary election in Kebbi State,” he said.

He promised to do his best in giving his people robust representation at the Senate.

  • ije2014

    Please don’t arrest this sad lunatic. Find him a doctor instead. This is now a new Nigeria and we’re leaving all bitterness of the past behind us.

  • umar

    When we told Nigerian not to vote for APC because–because of their usual jack-boot style of governance–they said no and—–helped APC to rig Ijaw man Jonathan out of power—–what is it that FFK said that has not been declared by the Fulanis now in POwer with their Yoruba traitors–How can a senator order the police to arrest a Nigerian—–Is this what the country will soon turn into—-Did any of the security agents arrest any of those underage voters–we saw in the North–Those APC thugs that stone the president in the North? This is just the beginning of what Nigerians should expect–from the government of Buhari——————Let us see how the media will take advantage of the FOIB–to chase the buhari the same way—they attacked Ijaw man Jonathan–animals

    • Fulani

      Sorry i understand the frustration you found yourself in. Please tell Patience Jonathan the Power of Almajiri and People shse no like from that side wey dey born shildren and throway for street and no fit count. INEC has counted them now for us… Mumu Blind and Clueless Ijaw people. Wait and see how Fulani Lead not RULING

    • Ade

      Go and die. Son of th devil. Ntoooo

      • kiza

        All these are no longer necessary…Jonathan has set an example; Buhari has reciprocated GEJ gesture; I dont expect us to get into unnecessary Cyber-wars. Lets look into the future with hope…assuming Jonathan didnt behave responsibly in conceding defeat it would have been, probably, impossible for us to be here attacking each other; lets maintain the peace online and offline…

    • Fredodo1

      @buringspear:disqus …I can feel your pain. But one advice I will give you is never to dabble into a game you know nothing about.
      it went into you people’s head and that was your downfall. Go back, learn more, regroup and take advantage of the lesson-learned.
      Nigeria will be great again

      • Uwan

        Thank you for that piece of advice. “He who can not see must be made to feel.”

    • OLD COL.(RTD)

      Will you stop this your”Ijaw man” crap. This process was vividly transparent and the election was free and fair. However, I must not hesitate to express my newfound respect for this “Ijaw man”, who as Nigeria’s president, graciously conceded the election to his opponent. This has never happened in Nigeria before and I do hope it is a new beginning. The North must now retool with the knowledge that losing an election must never again mean making the country ungovernable. May God continue to bless President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan for setting a good example for others to follow. We will always remember and admire your courage and contribution, Mr. President.

      • oma

        It is not about been free and fair but mostly about the love of this Ijaw man to humanity. He has to concede to guarantee his word that no Nigerian blood is worth his ambition otherwise the dogs and the baboons would have been soaked in blood. Great man he remains in history. As for the election, it is well. There is no need saying all that transpired in conspiracy.

    • Uwan

      Mama peace also asked people to stone anybody that shout CHANGE; Dokubo also said there will be war if Jonathan is not allowed. People infringe on others right we say they are expressing their views; some spread rumor we laugh and say this guy is too funny. Put youself in Tinumbu or Buhari’s shoe, how will you fiil if you hear those dirty speeches of FFK? Be sincere to yourself. The reason why we keep seeing all these is because .first we don’t know our rights and secondly if you have the backing of power that be you can do and undo. Now all that has got to stop; so, tell those that you care for that CHANGE has come to stay. Discipline and Integrity is the watchword

      • oma

        Haha haha! Well meaning Nigeria’s are laughing. Change and integrity indeed. Especially having to be voted by under age and scoring mopped up votes from home zone. From the look of things, this integrity will be demonstrated in expansion of prisons and construction of more since many are going to be incarcerated for daring to air their views. Change to the trenches it seems. God shall surely deliver us.

  • Nostory

    No more food for FFK

  • blackdove

    The coward is already in Tema- Ghana on the run.

  • Philex

    It is the EFCC that will come after him if he does not settle all the outstanding claims of the people who worked for him at the PDP campaign organisation.

  • Sanmi Falae

    Fani Kayode is a (professional) freelance politician. As far as he is concerned the election was job done, got my fees, am out of here, and next victim please!! He is a ruthlessly sleek operator who couldn’t careless about Nigeria, Yoruba, PDP, or Jonathan Good-luck but only about himself. At the end of the day, he is one of Nigeria’s teeming jobless leadership elite, like his ‘brother’ Nuhu Ribadu.

  • wode

    Why fighting again when God has declared you a winner. Fani-Kayode has lost everything – integrity, image, trust, assignment and ruling party.

    • Julius

      He never had any of those !!!.

  • kiza

    All these are no longer necessary…Jonathan has set an example; Buhari has reciprocated GEJ gesture; I dont expect us to get into unnecessary Cyber-wars. Lets look into the future with hope…assuming Jonathan didnt behave responsibly in conceding defeat it would have been, probably, impossible for us to be here attacking each other; lets maintain the peace online and offline…

    • oma

      Wise counsel

  • mdsurgeon

    Not really necessary to arrest anybody for all their vitriolic speeches and comments made during the campaign. They all need to be adequately warned though, especially for such speeches and comments that infringed against the law of the land.
    Fani-Kayode in particular needs to have his ears seriously pulled in a warning manner like the Yorubas would usually do, and warned not to repeat such again if ever given such an opportunity. Who know?

  • Musuru

    Look at this Aliero! Old thief… He probably thinks we do not know the magnitude of his robbery abi? Not your fault, changing parties like one changing clothes, rogues being elected and re elected for no just cause. We are yet to awaken from this pattern of re- electing thieves, worst still, over and over again to head our affairs in this country!

  • Abule Jagede

    This is one of the reason we never want Buhari or any malo as a president especially a one time dictator. You imagine useless alhaji Aliero already nursing bitterness again people of opposition party when you guys have not even resume office, forgetting that the attack were coming inn from both parties. Instead of building this nation as one family.
    Mallam Adamu Aliero SHUT UP before God punish your generation

    • Buzi

      Why should Fani Kayode lied that PDP has won in 23 states when you and I knew including himself (Fani Kayode) that his assertions were false aimed at causing chaos. It’s better to arrest him to serve as a lesson for people with similar intentions in d future.

      • Abule Jagede

        He ‘s entitled to his opinion just like the nonses Tinubu was saying though he became lucky to have won the election. I thank God i am not a politician and does not support them in any act, but nursing wickedness in their act is unGodly and devilish.
        Fani Kayode saying does not stop inec from counting !!so what is his offense? Must you guys show your act of wickedness?, then Buhari should come to power and kill or jail every opposition then since that is what you guys want

      • oma

        This is chasing shadows. They have forgotten that APC started releasing results before ballots were polled and FFK just reacted to the nonsense going on at that time. Now they are pursuing effect and not cause. Desporados in Association of Past Criminals
