The Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos State, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, says former governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola and his Rivers State counterpart, Rotimi Amaechi, did not fund President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign.
He described Fani-Kayode, who is a former Minister of Aviation’s allegation as a ‘bedtime story for kids’.
Fani-Kayode, in an article on Friday, had alleged that former governors Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State and his Rivers State counterpart, Rotimi Amaechi, funded President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign.
But Igbokwe urged the former minister to quickly return the N840m he admitted to receiving instead of giving excuses.
Igbokwe wondered how an opposition state could have access to more funds than a party that had been in control of Federal Government resources for 16 years.
He said, “Fani-Kayode is afraid of his shadow. Fani-Kayode’s PDP ruled Nigeria for 16 years and also looted Nigeria for 16 years with nothing to show for it except decayed infrastructure and empty treasury.
“In his confused state of mind, Fani-Kayode thinks APC spent huge sums of money including Lagos and Rivers states’ money to defeat Jonathan and PDP. This is a bedtime story for kids. What the APC did was to apply common sense where PDP was spending billions.
“Fani-Kayode is one of the PDP shameless leaders that destroyed the PDP. Fani-Kayode left the PDP and for almost a year, he rained abuses on President Jonathan and the PDP. He left no stone unturned in exposing Jonathan as clueless and rudderless, and in fact he brought to the public knowledge the inner workings of PDP and its many woes. Fani-Kayode later returned to the party he had labelled as a monumental and colossal failure to serve as the spokesman for the campaign organisation. What a confused man.”
