APC Threatens To Drag Fani-Kayode To Court Over Osinbajo, Tinubu Oath Allegation

Published

on

Lai Mohammed-Fani-kayodeThe All Progressive Congress, APC, has asked the Peoples Democratic Party and its Presidential Campaign’s Director of Media and Publicity, Femi Fani-Kayode, to produce evidence on his claims of oath-taking and resignation of Vice presidential candidate, Yemi Osinbajo, for national leader of APC, Bola Tinubu, in the event that APC’s Muhammadu Buhari wins the March 28 presidential election.

The APC Presidential Campaign Organisation in a statement in Abuja on Monday warned the PDP and Mr. Fani-Kayode to either show evidence of the oath-taking or retract the libellous claims within 72 hours or be ready to be charged to a court of law.

“For the PDP through Fani-Kayode to state publicly that an erudite Professor of law, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and a reputable Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God swore an oath to vacate his seat as the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for the National Leader of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, should the party win the forthcoming election is an attack on the hard-won integrity and the reputations of these great Nigerians and APC stalwarts”, said Garba Shehu, Director, Media and Publicity of the Campaign.

“We view this as both slanderous and libelous and therefore will not leave the matter to chance. To this effect, we hereby give Femi Fani-Kayode and the PDP 72 hours to produce evidence or in the alternative issue public apology to Pastor Yemi Osinbajo, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and our party the APC or be prepared to be charged to the court of law”.

    We may not be lawyers but there is nothing libellous about that publication. One would have expected them to go to court on the more serious allegation of Tinubu’s arrest in USA for money laundering. Try that for size noise makers.
