Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation minister and campaign spokesman for President Goodluck Jonathan’s reelection bid has said the Peoples Democratic Party will continue to raise questions as regards Gen. Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign.
Fani-Kayode said, “We believe it is important to always raise questions about facts, you know what these questions are and we will continue to raise them.”
According to him, “We do not wish him ill, we do not wish him dead, we wish him long life and we believe strongly that such sentiment can be aired by individuals certainly not in our name.
“Fayose never said that he was speaking on behalf of President Goodluck Jonathan but for his own self and he said that he issued it in his name. And I have emphasised that, that is his opinion and he is entitled to it.
“I could only disown if a statement was purportedly made on our behalf and in fairness to him, he never said that, what is important is to emphasise that fact that his position does not represent our position on this. He is entitled to that position, he is a leading member of our party. We have immense respect for Fayose just as we have immense respect for General Buhari and we will not allow anybody to attribute something to us that we did not say.
“So it is his statement and he is entitled to it. It doesn’t represent our position and he never said he represented our position.”
