Former Aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode challenged the All Progressives Congress (APC) to face him in court.
Mr. Fani-Kayode was reacting to the APC’s latest response to his claims that the Boko Haram terrorist group was the party’s armed wing.
Lai Mohammed, the Spokesperson of the APC, had on Wednesday said that it was too late for Mr. Fani-Kayode to back away from his statement, for which he must apologize or face court action.
According to Mr. Fani-Kayode, he would ignore the “childish name-calling” coming from the APC.
“I read the second response of Lai Mohammed and the APC to my comments which appeared in today’s newspapers. Does this so-called spokesman for Nigeria’s opposition party have nothing better to do than to join issues with me on a daily basis?” Mr. Fani-Kayode said.
“It is reinvigorating and humbling to note that Nigeria’s main opposition party can dedicate and deploy so much time and so many resources just to tackle me,” he added.
Mr. Fani-Kayode said that he looked forward to meeting the APC in court so that he can prove to the world who and what Mr. Mohammed and the APC “really are and the pure evil that you represent.”
“One wonders what you would do to your perceived enemies if, God-forbid, you ever get that power. Needless to say your belated explanations and attempted rationalisations about what you said last year about the Government’s proscription of Boko Haram and your opposition to it makes no sense,” Mr. Fani-Kayode continued.
