unapologetic after insulting a reporter yesterday

The former of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has responded to the scathing criticisms he has received after verbally assaulting a journalist yesterday.

The incident which happened on Tuesday, August 25, 2020, was captured in a viral video and shows Fani-Kayode unloading a barrage of insults on the newsman.

Visibly angry, the former minister was reacting to question from the reporter who wanted to know who was “bankrolling” Fani-Kayode’s tour of projects in Cross Rivers and other states in the South-South.

Fani-Kayode had said:

“I could see from your face before you got here, how stupid you are. Don’t ever talk to me like that. Don’t judge me by your own standards.

I have been in politics since 1990. I am not one of those politicians that you think will just come…. I was taken, I have been locked up how many times by this government. I have been prosecuted, unlike most of these politicians you follow for brown envelopes!

Don’t ever judge me by that standard. I spend, I don’t take and I am not a poor man, I have never been and will never be.”

Nigerians have slammed the politician for his use of harsh words over what many say was an overreaction on his part.

In his defense, Fani-Kayode took to his Twitter account to address the ensuing backlash, saying he has no apology to offer for the incident.

He says he has accepted the reporter’s apologies and has moved on, adding that it wasn’t a question but an “assertion” sponsored and engineered by his political enemies.

Speaking further, he stated that the question was a “gratuitous insult” and that he would not accept that from any man born of a woman.
