“I would never speak evil against Tinubu” – Fayemi

21 November 2016, 08:21Lekan OLadeinde

Abuja - Minister for Solid Minerals Kayode Fayemi has denied reports that he spoke ill against National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.

The former governor of Ekiti State who was reacting to a purported interview he granted said on Sunday evening through his Twitter handle that he would never demean Tinubu in anyway.

He said, “I have been alerted to a story circulating online ascribing certain remarks to me regarding the person of our leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
 

“The said report is not only mischievous but totally malicious and nothing but a tissue of lies. I never granted such interview and will never use such words quoted in the fictional report against anyone let alone our revered Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“I subscribe to the highest moral and ethical standards of the Yoruba culture. I respect my elders and leaders at all times. As such, I would never speak evil or seek to demean Asiwaju Tinubu or any of our respected leaders under no circumstance whatsoever.

“My relationship with Asiwaju dates back to days of pro-democracy agitations thus precedes the mundane politics of the 4th republic. I thank those who drew my attention to the report and many more who were quick to discard the falsehood of a report.
