The Director, Media and Publicity of Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation (PDPPCO), Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has described the information being circulated in social media where he reportedly saying that President Goodluck Jonathan was leaving a legacy of ‘destruction and disaster’ as false.
Fani-Kayode, in a statement,on Sunday, by his Special Assistant, Jude Ndukwe, pointed out that the statement being referred to was lifted from media reports of April 25, 2013, when he was on sojourn in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to him: “The report does not, in any way, represent Chief Femi Fani-Kayode’sopinion of President Jonathan, whom he holds in very high esteem; a fact that made the former Minister of Aviation work so vigorously for Mr. President as Director, Media and Publicity of his campaign organisation in the just concluded presidential election.”
The statement described the cordial relationship that exists between them (Jonathan and Fani-Kayode) as exemplary and legendary.
It accused those tagged enemies of the country of trying to sow a seed of discord and create enmity between him and the president.
The statement added: “We, therefore, call on all those who are behind this show of shame and advise them, in the strongest terms possible, to desist from such acts of cowardice, wickedness, preposterousness and puerility, as they blow no one any good wind.
“We also call on all patriotic and well-meaning Nigerians to ignore such reports and treat them as non-existent whether now or any other time in the future.
“Mr. President is our leader and Chief Femi Fani-Kayode holds him in very high esteem. He accords him the respect he deserves and is very proud to be associated with and to have worked for him.
“The relationship between these two great men remains cordial. No degree of campaign of calumny, by misguided elements, can change this very fact,” the statement declared.
