PDP Orders Probe Of Fani-Kayode Over Media Attacks

Published

on

Femi Fani-KayodeThe Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has ordered the immediate probe of one of its members, and former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, for criticising the party’s leadership and calling for its resignation.

The party advocated sanction on Mr. Kayode, who was the Director, Media and Publicity of President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign organization, for launching a media war against its leadership.

Mr. Fani-Kayode, alongside the Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, and some other PDP members, have blamed the leadership of the party for leading PDP to its worst outing in 16 years.

The party not only lost national elections, the number of states under its control reduced significantly from 21 to 13.

The ex-minister, while x-raying the party’s performance at the polls, on Tuesday accused two unnamed members of the party’s National Working Committee of working for the opposition All Progressives Congress.

However, in a classic example of the hunter becoming the hunted, the party ordered its chapter in Osun State, Mr. Fani-Kayode’s home state, to immediately investigate and punish him.

In a letter signed by its National Secretary, Prof. Wale Oladipo, the party mandated the PDP in Osun to first establish whether Mr. Fani-Kayode has been a “registered and financial member”.

If Mr. Fani-Kayode is a member, the party said, he should be punished severely, otherwise, he should be treated as a usurper.

Meanwhile, the NWC has expressed the party’s complete confidence in the National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, after Mr. Fani-Kayode attempted to question his capacity to play the role of opposition party spokesperson.

The NWC commended Metuh for his “outstanding performance, exemplary commitment and sacrifices”, particularly in the ways and manner with which he conducts the affairs of the Publicity Directorate in projecting the positive image of the party and its government.

“In the first place, the reason, why everybody should join politics, is to serve the people. The essence of government is to shield the poor masses and ensure justice,” he said.

“My main mission of joining the APC is because I have seen justice, I have seen development and I have seen the desire for the leadership at the highest peak to sacrifice their personal comfort just to make the poor people feel good. So I am in the APC to deliver, I am into the APC to help the people.”

The lawmaker promised to work to make sure the APC takes back Adamawa State from the PDP in 2023.
