Angry Tinubu attacks Fani-Kayode, says his “hallucinations now uncontrollable”

Bola Tinubu

A National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has described Femi Fani-Kayode, a former aviation minister, as a peddler of falsehood hired for a smear campaign against the party, its leader, and presidential candidates.

“Fani-Kayode is not as smart as he thinks.  If you read between the lines of his hysteria you see another extreme sentiment: that of surging desperation,” Mr. Tinubu said in a statement issued on Sunday by his Special Adviser on Media, Sunday Dare.

“His statement indicates that even he now realizes that his pay master has lost to Buhari/Osinbajo. The game is over. The whistle has blown. What the fantasy man seeks to do is change the game. He seeks to run against Tinubu in hopes the outcome will be better. Fani now grasps at straw in the night wind.”

Last Friday, Mr. Fani-Kayode, the Director of Media and Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organization, alleged that Yemi Osinbajo, the APC vice presidential candidate, had sworn an oath to vacate his seat should the party win the forthcoming election.

According to Mr. Fani-Kayode, Mr. Tinubu nominated the vice presidential candidate as part of “plans to come to power through the back door”.

“Tinubu, according to our information, has compelled Osinbajo to swear to an oath that after six months in office, he would resign as the vice president, in the unlikely event that their party wins,” said Mr. Fani-Kayode.

“The wicked plot, as laid out by them, is to force Osinbajo to resign for Tinubu to be nominated by Buhari as his replacement.”

Mr. Tinubu said that the former minister “is on a futile journey to shield the populace from seeing the failures of his paymasters”.  

“His statement taken in context indicates that his paymasters will lose the election. They are now worried about what will happen thereafter,” he said.

“The majority of Nigerians have concluded that they have done enough damage to our politics, economy and security; and cannot be tolerated any longer. Rather, they should be voted out by the people. Their journey of lies and deception is at its terminal point. 

“It lied to Nigerians and the international community that elections had to be shifted first because of the PVC issue and later it became a security ambush to change the date thus aborting Nigeria’s date with destiny at the polls.

“That FFK(Femi Fani-Kayode) is the best a ruling party can do as a spokesman speaks volumes about the PDP.  They are bereft of talent and character. They are filled with lies and chicanery. FFK is simply the worst and most outspoken of a bad lot.”

Mr. Tinubu, however, said that he welcomed Mr. Fani-Kayode’s interventions because they are of such low quality and base character and his utterances frighten people.

“Instead of scaring the people away from the APC, his work scares people that someone so unfit is so close to the seat of power, someone so unhinged is given free rein to spit bile and call that public discourse. One must wonder who is unbalanced, the misfit or he who hires him. Keep at it FFK. Continue,” Mr. Tinubu said.

“Most Nigerians are fed up with this government and desire change. They await eagerly that opportunity at the polls. They cannot tolerate four more years of a Fani Kayode, of his paymasters and his utterances. That is your agony Fani Kayode and of course that of the PDP and its gang of destroyers. You will not be able to persuade majority of Nigerians who are prepared to use their vote for a positive change. And if only to shield the populace from your peculiar brand of abuse of power both you and your boss must go.” 

The APC leader said that the ruling party’s smear campaign failed to make a headway against the APC’s presidential and vice presidential candidates, and is now resorting to run against him.

“This plot will not work. Tinubu is not scheming to become president through the back door. He, just like any qualified Nigerian has the right to walk in through the front door if he so desires. But he is not on the ticket,” he said.

“For the job he is hired to do, it is expected that a Fani Kayode will be blinded to the positive nature of the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket. If he has failed to read and do some research on the character of an Osinbajo, let me help him.

“Yemi Osinbajo is fiercely independent. A brilliant mind of great character and a consummate reformer and legal crusader. You will not dare speak of him in this manner. The APC ticket is of people of great resolve. But because among your own crowd you have people who will willingly destroy not only our institutions and country you think so of others.

“APC is a party with people of impeccable character. Courageous and patriotic leaders who are out to rescue our nation. And you, Fani Kayode are on record to have said so in several interviews.”

Mr. Tinubu said that he would not dignify Mr. Fani-Kayode’s “outrageous lies” with any reply, adding that Nigerians know him as a peddler of falsehood.

“Femi Fani Kayode cannot just leave Tinubu alone because they see him as their political nemesis. But Tinubu will not be their dart board . If they want to see the culprit behind their flagging misfortune, they do not need to glare at Tinubu.  They should go home and peer into the nearest mirror. Therein their trouble lies.

“Now that FFK has revealed why his party, the PDP has consistently persecuted Bola Tinubu through phony Code of Conduct Tribunal, massive unjustified attacks against his character and integrity, intimidation and harassment.

“They all have failed. In what is a classic case of abuse of power, the government you now work for have accused Tinubu in the past of baseless and unproven allegations whereas in your party, including yourself, there are wolves feasting on the commonwealth of the people.

“For a leadership that cannot define corruption and theft, we are left with a gang of plunderers. You have openly and secretly stolen and plundered the wealth of the nation without the slightest concern about morality and the suffering masses.”

    FFK hit a home run with this groundbreaking revelation about the secret evil deal to make Tinubu our president. I have observe the angst and shock the APC has been trying to explain away FFK expose since last week. Anyone that listened to Pastor Bakare on YouTube exposing a similar plot in 2011 and comparing it to Osibajo who has been Mr. Tinubu’s man-Friday since 1999 would know that this is possible.

    • progress

      Not in today’s Nigeria and certainly a president Buhari will not be party to such plan.


      FFK has finally confirmed his drug addiction is incurable and that his sole motivation for his lies against the APC leaders is his fear of going to prison, for his corruption case, being prosecuted by Keyamo on bhalf of the EFCC

  • Save Nigeria Father

    The conclusion of majority of Nigerians is not what the cabal is showcasing for they are working against the populace. I would rather say that majority of Nigeria are still waiting for a true opposition to take over from PDP not the like that is presently bedeviled with lies. Lets pray that GEJ continue so that a true opposition best fitted for transformation will emerge. The people I see in APC has much impeccable character.

    • Titi

      the cabal is working against the populace, and the gang leader should continue for ever.. u should manufacture saints and give us as an alternative; u are certainly a mad man

  • Don Uche Ogoke

    Nigerianso are interested in issue and policy based campaign and not name calling and mudslinging. We are now wiser and very objective and will vote very reasonably. Please Fani, all we are interested in hearing from you as the pdp spokesman is his achievements in the past 6yrs and how to make things better.

  • Yusuf

    at least Osinbajo has the morality to make an oath and fulful on that, this is the reason why it is an issue; imagine a news breaking that jonathan or Sambo has taken an oath, who will take it serious. All this empty lies are signs of a drowning man

  • HarryP

    Nigeria must be saved from Tinubu and his cabal… He wants to annex Nigeria just as he emasculated Lagos for his parochial benefit .


      Nigeria MUST be saved from GEJ, MADAM CHAI! and the PDP b4 its too late or else there wont be any Nigeria if these plunderers remain in power any longer. God forbid

    • Victor Odutola Mayomi

      Do you have your proof?Your hate campaigns will just embolden more people to vote against your interest. I am sorry for you because you are on the wrong path.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    If APC can take a pic of Buhari at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja and distribute same to the media as having been taken in London, I won’t put anything past the Islamic Party. I believe FFK. Meanwhile, Buhari will soon be disqualified. Therefore, any talk of him winning an election he will not participate in is not only illusory but also delusional.


      Omisore you are afraid of going to prison when GMB wins the election. So your hatred and fear of an APC win is understandable

    • Victor Odutola Mayomi

      You must be one of the boys of Fayose since you seem to be reflecting his views on this page. Up you!

  • Rommel

    I think the hallucination is spreading now in the PDP faster than we anticipated,a president who consumes concentrated illicit gin with high frequency and has developed liver sclerosis from it is now accusing a man who does not drink at all of ill health,Fani Kayode who is a confirmed psychiatric patient is also now accusing someone who is 72 years with sound mind and clarity of thoughts as unfit,why would their views be worthwhile? views coming from a drunkard and his psychotic spokesman

      Bola Tinubu Where is Lagos State’s $40billion dollars?

      Between May 1999 and now, Lagos state government has earned $40 billion dollars
      as revenues but the money – less salary and running expenses – was partly shared
      between Bola Tinubu, and Raji Fashola under corporate guise in the worst scam ever
      in modern Yoruba history.

      In 2012, Lagos state floated a loan bond of ₦87.5 billion loan in November to borrow
      at 14.5% interest rate and got public investors to subscribe for repayment with interest
      but once the bond was fully subscribed, Raji Fashola took 40% of that money –
      about 35 billion Naira or so – and handed it over in cash to Bola Ahmed Tinubu,
      via bogus corporate fronts, namely: (a) Lekki Concession Company, (b) ARM company,
      and, (c) Hitech company
      ; in a bogus “buy-back deal” of a supposed concession right
      on the 15-kilometre Lekki Expressway.

      • O. Majeks

        …..(2) Bola Tinubu Where is Lagos State’s $40billion dollars?

        This patently corrupt deal was ostensibly to buy back Lagos state ‘concession rights’
        on the Lekki tolled Expressway, according to Raji Fashola, but what the corrupt and
        clever by half Raji Fashola did not say is that the land at issue belongs to Lagos state
        and was never sold to Bola Tinubu’s companies in the first place.

        Or did Bola Tinubu’s companies invest 35 billion Naira developing the road.

        In other words, by sheer fraud, Raji Fashola paid Bola Tinubu 25 years profit upfront;
        without any work, A lien was then imposed on Lagos state allocation of federal revenue
        for the next 3 years to pay for this 80 billion Naira bond debt by all Lagos residents,
        on top of another $3.7 billion dollars of debt Raji Fashola has so far incurred,
        without any sustainable project to show for it; a debt equal to gross future income
        of Lagos state from Nigeria’s federal allocation in the next 3½ years.

      • Victor Odutola Mayomi

        You must be hallucinating. Why are these hate campaigns coming up at this time. This is basically senseless since the massive development in Lagos over the years evidently shows that the funds of the state have been applied reasonably for development. The half truths and deceit cannot sway any decent voter.

  • Mr. Abdin

    Nothing will stop the change by the grace of God and as for FFK he is confused.

  • Repeater Station


    • Orji


      We can call this one BRTP, i.e: Bus Riding The People.
      Hahahahaha! I never go; Lagosians, i beg una, i still dey come!

    • Victor Odutola Mayomi

      You are free to believe your hate campaign. Nobody should be above the law. If anyone is believed to have committed any offence including Tinubu why not charge him to court rather than hiding under untruthful and hate campaigns. I have never seen this kind of desperation in the annals of political campaigns in Nigeria. God loves Nigeria. He will frustrate the plot of hate campaigners in Nigeria.
