’I don’t know your father’ – Fani-Kayode roasts Gov. Wike [VIDEO]

A former Minister of Aviation in Nigeria, Femi Fani-Kayode has slammed Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and his co-travellers who tie his relevance in politics today to his father, Remi Fani-Kayode. Late Remi Fani-Kayode is a one-time deputy premier of the Western Region of Nigeria.

POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that Governor Wike had during a recent interview with BBC News Pidgin lashed out at ‘FFK’, suggesting that the new All Progressives Congress (APC) member rode on the back of his father’s goodwill to occupy public offices.

But in a recent interview with Cally Ikpe on the TV show, Talking Violence, Femi Fani-Kayode branded such talks as “rubbish”.

“Most of all those speaking about my father, most of them are not even fit to tie his shoe laces,” Fani-Kayode said.

“This is a man that moved the motion for Nigeria’s Independence successfully, in 1958. This is a man of integrity, a man of strength, a man of courage, that build bridges in this country. And I am very proud of my father.

“For anybody to talk about my father, well, I don’t know who their fathers are, so I tend not to respond to such rubbish.”

Fani-Kayode crossed from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC in September amid knocks from majority of Nigerians.
