The All Progressives Congress, APC, Lagos State chapter has stated that former governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola and his Rivers State counterpart, Rotimi Amaechi, did not fund President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign.
The Publicity Secretary of the party, Joe Igbokwe said the claim by former Aviation Minister and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Fani-Kayode, was a ‘bedtime story for kids’.
Fani-Kayode, had in an article on Friday, 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 have received, instead of giving excuses.
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.”
