A former Minister of Aviation and member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Thursday, said he would no longer keep his peace over continued attacks on Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential flag bearer.
In a post on his official Facebook page, Fani-Kayode once publicly admitted that he has a short fuse particularly singled out Arise TV, alleging that the media house has unbridled hatred for Tinubu.
He wrote; “With disgust and consternation, I watched one of the leaders of Peter Obi’s PCC insulting and attempting to mimic Asiwaju’s speech on Channels TV the other day and suggesting that he had mental health challenges.
“A few days earlier I heard another Obi spokesman on yet another Channels Television programme referring to him as “Nebuchadnezzar”, “a monkey” and “satan”.
“The thing that appalled me the most was that in both interviews the moderators allowed him to keep making the point and mocking our candidate.
“They all appeared to be enjoying themselves and having a good laugh.
This has become the norm on virtually all the television stations in Nigeria today where insulting and denigrating Asiwaju has been turned into a public bloodsport and favourite pastime.
“In this respect the prize goes to Arise Television who can barely disguise their utter disdain and hatred for our candidate.
“Like Obi’s men, the PDP, their spokesmen and their leaders are also guilty of this attempt to slur and say some of the most outrageous things about our candidate and his health on national television as well.
“Up till now, I have been quite gentle and I have kept the peace by refraining from targeting the respective opposition candidates on national television but let me serve them notice that it is my intention to respond to them fire for fire from today onwards on every social media platform, every newspaper and every television and radio station that they seek to disparage our candidate and leader.
“The Obidients particularly mistook our silence and restraint for weakness but they will learn the hard way because we will tell the world who and what Obi and Dati really are.”Follow us on social media
