FFK WITHDRAWS WORD "STUPID" USED TO A JOURNALIST IN CALABAR

 



The Former Minister of Aviation ,Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has withdrawn the word "stupid" used in his encounter with a journalist in Calabar.


It is only a wise and reasonable leader, with high level of humility can take back his words.


He said: "I met with my advisors till late last night and I wish to say the following. I hereby withdraw the word "stupid" which I used in my encounter with a journalist in Calabar. 


I have many friends in the media who I offended by losing my cool and using such words. I hereby express my regrets for doing so.


I do however wish to state categorically that no threat of physical harm was ever made to the journalist in question and neither did I send anyone to threaten him. Anyone that says otherwise is lying and I challenge them to bring the proof.


I would never seek to physically harm a journalist. For the last 30 years I have defended and worked with journalists and fought for the right of freedom of expression. 


I am  also very close to many in that profession. I would be the last to seek to disparage those that are honorable and noble within its ranks. 


I hope that this will assuage the pain and anger of anyone that was hurt or offended by this ugly episode. I have now put this matter behind me and moved on. Now my tour of the South continues. Moving to yet another state today!"
