    Fani-Kayode slams PDP over drug trafficking suit against Tinubu 

    Published By:

    Femi Fani-Kayode, spokesperson for the ruling All Progressives Congress, presidential Campaign Council PCC, has slammed the Peoples Democratic Party over its suit challenging the party’s flagbearer Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

    Wakadaily learnt that the spokesperson for the PDP campaign council, Kola Ologbodiyan, told newsmen on Monday that the party had approached the courts seeking Tinubu’s disqualification over allegations bordering on conviction for trafficking narcotics in the United States.

    Reacting to the suit, Fani-Kayode during an interview with Channels Television’s Politics, described the allegations as baseless, noting that there’s no evidence to back the PDP drug trafficking claims against Tinubu.

    According to him, “This is a simple lie. A fallacious mendacity. Complete falsehood. He [Tinubu] was never convicted. The Americans themselves said that he was not indicted and neither was he convicted.

    “Yet, they keep bleating like little children about these things. There’s no basis in reality in it. It’s a very simple thing. For us, this a civic duty.

    We need to be responsible and it is our duty to expose Atiku for what he really is and we will continue to do that. They have tried to respond by bringing all manner of insults, all manner of fake allegations without any credible evidence.

    “If you have that kind of evidence, present it before the public and let us see. Then we will consider what you’re saying. So, then stop throwing bricks where you have nothing inside them to carry weight,” he added.
