Nothing Should Happen To Fani-kayode – Osun Group Warns Modu Sheriff


BEVERLY HILLS, February 25, (THEWILL) – A group, Osun Ibile Forum has warned the new chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff over his recent threat to deal with former Aviation Minister, Chief Fani Kayode for linking him to Boko Haram terrorism.

The new PDP Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff had on Monday threatened that this time round those who are accusing him of being the founder of Boko Haram, particularly Femi Fani-Kayode “will not go scot free”.

But in a statement signed on Wednesday by its Coordinator, Prince Adeoluwa Adesegun, the group noted that what Kayode alleged about Boko Haram was already in public domain, wondering why Senator Sheriff should issue personal warning on an issue that is already a public knowledge.

The statement reads, “We are using this opportunity to warn that nothing untoward should happen to one of our leaders, Chief Oluwa kayode Fani Kayode. The former minister is a committed party man and he has every right to defend the credibility of his party. There is nothing on earth that should warrant a direct personal threat to a public figure like Fani Kayode.

“For us on this forum, we stand by Chief Fani Kayode and we say it loud and clear that we uphold his fight for justice, credibility and due process in the reform of the PDP. He is a man known for speaking his mind and most of the time, he speaks the truth many are afraid of saying.

“If truly Senator Sheriff is a statesman, why should he issue a threat as strong as that against a party man? At a time he should be pursuing reconciliation, is it right for the chairman to engage in open brawl,” the group asked.

The forum, while pointing out that the PDP cannot regain power if it fails to engage in genuine reforms, added that “PDP should encourage rather than silence the voice of reason like that of Fani Kayode “
