Ex-minister Femi Fani Kayode asks “Is it a crime to be a PDP member?”

He also said he did not receive any funds from any government official during GEJ’s tenure.


Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has issued a statement in response to reports that he received N1.7bn from former president, Goodluck Jonathan.

Fani-Kayode said “I read with amusement the allegation that was made in saharareporters, the unofficial media wing of the Buhari administration, the SSS and the EFCC,, that I was given 1.7 billion naira cash by President Goodluck Jonathan. This is false. “

“A few hours later they changed their story and said that I received 1.7 billion naira from the office of the former NSA, Colonel Sambo Dasuki. This is also false. I have never received one kobo from President Jonathan himself, Colonel Dasuki or any other member of President Jonathan’s government,” the ex-minister said.

He also said he did not receive any funds from any government official during GEJ’s tenure.

FFK, as he is fondly called, revealed that he only collected funds from private individuals, and not government coffers,  when he headed the Media and Publicity department of theJonathan/Sambo Campaign organisation.

Fani-Kayode also wondered if it was a crime to be a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

His words: “If it is a crime to be a member of the PDP and to be in opposition they should just say so. If it is a crime to speak up for and defend President Jonathan and key members of his government after he has left office they should just say so.

“If it is a crime to oppose the Buhari administration and speak up against his gross violations of human rights that they are indulging in and the violation of court orders they should just say so.”

The former minister also wrote an open letter to President Buhari where he alleged that Mr. President was lying.

Femi Fani-Kayode also served as the Special Assistant on Public Affairs, to former President Olusegun Obasanjo from July 2003 until June 2006.
