Fani-Kayode calls Sheriff a liar

15 August 2016, 15:18

Abuja - Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has declared the disputed National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ali Modu Sheriff, as a liar and a curse to PDP as a party.

Fani-Kayode was reacting to a statement credited to Sheriff that he begged the former Borno State Governor after declaring him as the face of Boko Haram.

Sheriff had on a Channels TV programme, Politics Today, alleged that Fani-Kayode had begged him after the statement.

But Fani-Kayode in a statement on Sunday described Sheriff as a liar.

He said he never begged Sheriff over the issue as claimed.

Rather, he said he remains happy that he was one of those who saw Sheriff for who he was and quickly opposed his leadership of the PDP.

“These are the lies of a desperate and drowning man.

“He came to destroy the PDP and if we did not rise up against him and kick him out when we did he would have succeeded in his mission.

“I am proud to have been the first to see him for what he is and to publicly blow the whistle on him.

“I was one of those that led the rebellion against him and orchestrated the campaign to push him out and dump him as the National Chairman of our party and many have thanked me for that including some of those that brought him in the first place and attempted to impose him on us.

“The man is of the devil and no-one should believe a word that comes out of his mouth or take him seriously. “He is a curse to the PDP and the sooner he is kicked out of the party the better it is for us all.

“Lying Ali Modu Sheriff has changed political parties no less than five times in the last few years. “Each time he goes to a new party that is not in power at the center he assumes the role of a government mole and spy and tries to destroy it from within on behalf of the government of the day.

 “On return he gets protection from the state for all the many atrocities he has committed over the years.

“He has betrayed everyone and every political party he has ever worked with or for.

“We used him to spy on and destroy the APP when Obasanjo was in power and now Buhari is using him to destroy the PDP.

“Luckily he has failed because 99 per cent of PDP members have rejected him and now he is on his own.

“He failed in his evil mission and now he is making noise like a chicken or snake whose head has been cut off. “

Unlike him I am consistent in my views and I am as constant as the northern star. 

“With me you will always know where you stand and I will always speak my mind no matter whose ox is gored. “He is the opposite.

“He pretends to be a friend and a loyalist when his real plan is to stab you in the back and kill you on the night.He does not have the courage to be loyal to any cause, any person or any political party.

“He is more of a gangster than a politician and everyone knows it.He comes into another man’s house or political party and tries to pull it down by deceit and guile. “He is a vessel of destruction.

That is the man who some misguided people believe can be trusted. “He was in APP, then ANPP, then APC and now he is in PDP all in a matter of a few years and everywhere he goes he fights everyone until they get tired of him and push him out.

“If anyone wants to talk about ‘changing goal posts’ it should certainly not be him.”
