My Political Enemies At Work – Fani-kayode Defends Insulting Journalist In Viral Video (Updated: Wednesday, 26th August 2020, 07:47 AM)


Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, on Tuesday reacted to a viral video of him verbally attacking a journalist during a press conference.

Fani-Kayode disclosed that the journalist in question did not ask a question but insulted him.

In the video, Fani-Kayode could be heard shouting at the journalist while others sat back and watched.

Reacting to the footage, the former minister claimed that his “political enemies” used the said journalist to insult him.

In a tweet, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chieftain insisted that he had no apologies to offer for his action.

In a series of tweets, Fani-Kayode wrote:

“During my tour of the South and after a long and successful press conference in Calabar, Cross Rivers state, a journalist put up his hand for the last question and said, “Well we do not know who is bankrolling you”.

“This is not a question but an assertion and an insult.

“And if this insulting ASSERTION were made before Trump or OBJ I know how they would have reacted. Above is my response and I have no apology to offer for it.

The young man apologised to me during the press conference and sent his apologies to me after the conference.

“I have accepted his apologies and moved on. I have always had respect for journalists and always will. Those of them that know me or worked with or for me over the last 30 years can attest to that.

However, there is a distinction between asking a question & offering an insult.

“This is all the more so when it is clear that the assertion was sponsored and engineered by my political enemies who wanted to use the young man to insult and embarrass me and question my integrity. Well, they got more than they bargained for.

“I repeat this was not a question but an assertion and a gratuitous insult and I will not accept that from any man born of woman. Thank you.”
