Femi Fani-Kayode: APC suspects he may be suffering from 'substance abuse'

Femi Fani-Kayode: APC suspects he may be suffering from ‘substance abuse’

A case of having it in one’s own coin. That was what Femi Fani-Kayode got on Saturday morning from the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The party said it was sure that out of pressure, Fani-Kayode, the spokesman for President Goodluck Jonathan’s Campaign Organisation, has again resorted to substance abuse.

The APC said it would be a real tragedy “if the obviously-disturbed spokesman of a doomed presidential campaign will have to be rushed to a back house in Ghana for therapeutics, hence the need for his handlers to quickly put him on a leash before it is too late.”

Fani-Kayode had earned the wrath of APC, his former political party, after he alleged that the party’s National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, could have been scheming to take over from Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the running mate to Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the APC in the forthcoming elections if the APC eventually wins.

“The PDPPCO wishes to use this forum to expose the ungodly plan by Tinubu to seize the presidency of Nigeria by subterfuge. The real reason Tinubu nominated Osinbajo has been made known to us and we hereby offer a public service to the Nigerian people by drawing national attention to it.

“Tinubu wanted to be running mate to Buhari in spite of the nationwide resentment for Muslim-Muslim ticket that he and Buhari planned to foist on their party men and women. But when he and Buhari could not push through the agenda within the APC, he (Tinubu), after being given the opportunity to nominate a vice presidential candidate, he decided to prop up his stooge in the person of Prof Osinbajo,” Fani-Kayode said.

Responding, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the APC National Publicity Secretary, said in a statement that the sickening and outlandish claim was designed to divert attention from the runaway success of the APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, at the Chatham House in London last Thursday.

The APC said the PDP and the President Goodluck Jonathan administration still do not have any answer to what has now become “an epochal moment that has separated the wheat from the chaff.

“Our presidential candidate’s globally-acclaimed outing has presented Nigerians, and indeed the global community, with a choice between a bumbling, ineffective, incoherent, clueless, visionless and incompetent President and an assertive, knowledgeable, dignified, purposeful and principled President-in-waiting.

“Having failed to discredit that outing with a rented crowd, some of whom confessed to have been paid to carry placards they do not even understand, the PDP and the Jonathan Administration have now resorted to making nauseating claims that are totally untrue, absolutely incomprehensible and nothing but sheer bunkum.”

APC said the claim by Fani-Kayode is the latest in a series of desperate moves by the PDP and the Jonathan administration since the emergence of General Buhari as the APC presidential candidate, and the clearest indication yet that they have no answer to the unstoppable momentum of a man of history.

“They have thrown everything imaginable at Gen. Buhari, but he has continued to wax stronger and stronger: They said he was not qualified, that he was too old, then they fabricated a medical report of an illness of their own choice, sponsored death wish adverts against him and instituted a myriad of court cases to stop him.

“After they failed to stop him, they went after the election itself, using the PVCs as a tool to launch a campaign for postponement and, when they realized that would not work, came up with the bogey of insecurity in the North-east to force a postponement of the election, hoping they can buy enough time to revive their electoral misfortune.

“With everything working against them, they engaged in a show of shame at The Chatham House that backfired badly, on the heels of their bare-faced lies that Gen. Buhari was hospitalized in London. The preposterous claim of a secret oath – reminiscent of what they do in their own party – by the apparently ailing spokesman of the Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, is their latest desperate act,” the party said.

APC said in as much as it has so far refrained from engaging Fani-Kayode in his game of character assassination, abuses and irresponsible name calling, the party is becoming seriously concerned that he may be caving in under pressure and reverting to his undignified past of substance abuse.

    Thank you for this reminder. God has answered our prayer. We thank him. He will deliver our country through all of us voting massively for Buhari.

    Also –

    Jonathan said it himself. You cannot put a goat and yam together, the goat MUST eat the team. We have put a goat and yam together – and we see what has happened! LET US NOT REPEAT THE SAME MISTAKE! Doing the same thing over and over again is madness and Nigerians ARE NOT mad people – So God willing we would vote Buhari.

    See how the last goat and yam put together played out:

    The Supervised-oil-theft contracts:
    President Jonathan have personally supervised the grand theft, through two contracts financed with tax payers money, since January 2012 (possibly fall of 2011) of 400,000 barrels of oil per day by those he hand-picked to safeguard the supply lines against theft. According to Soludo: “First, you (Finance Minister, Okonjo-Iweala) admit that ‘oil theft’ has reduced oil output from the average 2.3 – 2.4 million barrels per day to 1.95 mpd (meaning that at least 350,000 to 450,000 barrels per day are being ‘stolen’). On the average of 400,000 per day and the oil prices over the past four years, it comes to about $60bn ‘stolen’ in just four years.

    – This is done through two 2 contracts that Jonathan signed to rebel leaders from his tribe.

    These are the 2 contracts by the Jonathan administration that is a major feed to the monster bedevilling Nigeria and turning it into a failed state, and a personal estate of King Jonathan, it was fall 2011 & 2012 time frame – widely reported by Wall Street Journal and major newspapers in Nigeria – just google it – I like the composition in the piece titled, Help, This Nigerian State Is Failing By Ayobami Oyalowo:

    ”In August, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) broke some disturbing news about Nigeria. It was reported that some ex-militants in the Niger Delta had been paid about N6.32billion within the past one year by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). Yes, for the ‘noble’ service of providing security against vandals for the Corporation’s oil pipeline network. Imagine! The breakdown, as outlined by WSJ, is this:

    Chief Government Ekpumopolo (alias Tompolo), Alhaji Mujahid Asari-Dokubo, ‘General’ Ebikabowei Victor Ben (Boyloaf) and ‘General’ Ateke Tom were respectively paid N5.1 billion, N1.44 billion, N608 million and N608 million yearly by the state-owned NNPC, as ‘protection money’ to guard the pipelines they once attacked.

    As if that was not enough an insult on the collective intelligence of Nigerians, earlier in the year the Federal Government awarded a contract worth $103.4million (over N15billion) to the Global West Vessel Specialist Limited (GWVSL) – a firm widely believed to be owned by Tompolo to supply 20 vessels for the use of the nation’s military authorities to secure the waterways. Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Ziadeke Akpobolokemi, had last year sent a memo titled, “Award of Contract for the Strategic Concessioning Partnership with NIMASA to Provide Platforms for Tracking Ships and Cargoes, Enforce Regulatory Compliance and Surveillance Of The Entire Nigerian Maritime Domain,” to President Goodluck Jonathan.

    In considering the memo, President Goodluck Jonathan and Akpobolokemi chose GWVSL as the preferred company for the 10-year concession agreement, renewable for two terms of five years each. Jonathan, in a memo dated 9th November, 2011, with reference number PRES/99/MT/61, approved Akpobolokemi’s memo, which the Federal Executive Council rubber-stamped on 5th January, 2012. According to Akpobolokemi, GWVSL “will provide platforms for effective policing of Nigeria’s maritime domain and ensure compliance with international maritime conventions on vessels and ships voyaging the country’s waters”. NIMASA maintains that the concessionaire would help the Federal Government to enforce the sabotage law and collect levies on its behalf. This, in a country that still maintains a statutory Naval force, and without a track record for GWVSL?

    From the above, the current occupant of the presidential villa showed where his loyalty lies…rather than train the military, he equipped criminals and vandals who had taken up arms against the state. No wonder so much arms and ammunition have found their way into Nigeria and our country has now become one gigantic human abattoir where someone is killed on an average of an hour, daily. Between January to May 2014 it has been estimated that over 1,500 people have been mindlessly cut down by terrorists and blood thirsty killers.

    Fani Kayode is suffering from mouth diarrhea and brain wave. Read what Fani Kayode wrote about Jonathan in 2014 below.


    by Femi Fani-Kayode _FFK, 2014

    A President who does not understand the
    meaning of the word ”class” or ”honesty” and who breaks his own word
    consistently. 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
    community and breaks his solemn oath to protect and defend the Nigerian people.
    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. May God
    deliver our country.`
