The All Progressives Congress (APC) says Femi Fani-Kayode, spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Organisation, may be abusing substance owing to the series of “incoherent” allegations he has levelled against the party.
FanÍ-Kayode had alleged that Yemi Osinbajo, APC vice-presidential candidate, is a stooge of Bola Tinubu and would eventually pave the way for him to become vice-president.
But the APC through, Lai Mohammed, its spokesman, on Monday said: “No, we have never and will never wish anyone any ill-health. However, we are seriously concerned that Fani-Kayode may have unhinged, perhaps as a result of a relapse into an unhealthy lifestyle of substance abuse.
“Our concern stems from the series of incoherent statements, outlandish claims and inconsistent behaviours exhibited by Fani-Kayode in recent times, which call into question his state of mental health.
“We wish Mr. Fani-Kayode well and call on him to tell Nigerians that he remains clean, despite the massive pressure of work, and that he will not do anything that will see him needing a prolonged reformation in a foreign land.”
The opposition party stated that it was only an unstable mind and someone teetering on the brink that would conjure up the kind of improbable scenarios that had been put out there in quick succession by Fani-Kayode, and still believes strongly that he is doing the right thing.
“The APC does not harbour the kind of disturbed personalities who abound in the PDP, and who will not hesitate to publicly wish fellow Nigerians ill or dead, as long as they believe such ill-will would endear them to their masters and guarantee their political survival,” it said.
