Former Minister of Aviation and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has advised embattled Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan to be bold and stand firm on allegations she made against the Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai.
Fani-Kayode in a statement on Sunday said that she should stop blaming him for reacting to the trending report of the Minister alleging role of the Kaduna State Governor in the kidnap of Chibok Girls.
“Mama Taraba should continue to stand on the platform of truth and not allow herself to be intimidated. I reacted to a story in which she allegedly exposed Nasir El Rufai.
“It took her 24 hours to deny the story and I wonder why it took so long. If the story is not true she should blame the original source, medium and author of the allegation and not me.
“I merely reacted to it like millions of other Nigerians did. She should clean up her stinking mess and not blame me for it.
“I guess that it is also not true that her associates in the APC government have alleged that 12 million went missing under her watch as Minister and that she now supports Abubakar Atiku against her own boss,” he said.
Fani-Kayode challenged her to stand firm and stop blowing hot and cold.
“You cannot serve God and the devil at the same time. I repeat she should clean up her stinking mess and understand that I am not a soft or easy target.
“Whichever way the APC sun is still setting. My advice to her is to stop getting her pretty knickers in a twist, to tow the path of honor, to resign from this accursed Govt. and to leave the APC before they strip her stark naked and feed her to the dogs,” he concluded.
It would be recalled that a news item credited to Alhassan in which she was quoted to have threatened to expose El-Rufai’s role in the abduction of Chibok Girls and Boko Haram went viral, but was also debunked by the Minister through her media aide.
