APC to sue Fani-Kayode for linking Buhari with ISIS, ISIL, Al Qaeda



The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign
Organisation has threatened to sue President Goodluck
Jonathan campaign spokesperson, Femi Fani-Kayode,
for claiming that the APC presidential candidate,
Muhammadu Buhari, is getting funding for his election
campaign from terrorist groups, such as the outlawed
Boko Haram, Al-Qaeda and ISIS.
In a statement released in Abuja on Saturday, the
organisation accused Mr. Fani-Kayode of perpetuating
religious politics, and gave him one week to retract his
defamatory comments or face the law.
“Never before in Nigeria’s history has the issue of
religion been applied to such sinister purposes as we
have seen during the years of President Jonathan’s
government,” said Garba Shehu, Director of Media and
Publicity of the APC presidential campaign
“When all fails, they whip out the religious card.”
The campaign organisation however expressed relief
that Nigerians were no more being fooled by what it
called “this PDP game”.
According to the group, Mr. Buhari has transcended all
the religious smears and, together with his running
mate, Yemi Osinbajo, who is a pastor, has been able to
show the Nigerian people that Nigeria’s growth and
development is not about religion, but about a genuine
desire to change the lot of the country’s citizens and
move the entire nation forward.
“A majority of the world’s Muslims, including Buhari, do
not approve of the Al-Qaeda, and being Muslim does
not translate into being pro-ISIS,” the group added.
“Again and again, Buhari has shown commitment to
ridding our country of these vermin who claim to be
killing in the name of Allah, but who, in actual fact, are
messengers of Satan.”
The APC said it will ask the court next week to
confiscate Mr. Fani-Kayode’s international passport by
way of injunction.
“There are some campaigners who obviously intend to
escape from Nigeria after the handover of government
from Jonathan to Buhari on May 29. That must be the
reason why they can boldly make many of the reckless,
irresponsible and defamatory statements that they have
been mouthing off so flippantly throughout this
campaign season. Either that or these people do not
believe in our country’s judicial system. They don’t
believe that one day; it will catch up with them.”
The APC warned that it would not extend the seven-day
deadline given to Mr. Fani-Kayode to retract his false
“Let me assure the PDP federal government that, under
Buhari’s government, the judiciary will work. These
men will be made to pay for all the many libel and fines
the courts would hopefully issue for the crimes that
their big mouths have committed.”
