- A chieftain of the PDP, Femi Fani-Kayode, has fired back at his critics
- Fani-Kayode's recent meeting with some leaders of the ruling APC has continued to generate reactions among Nigerians
- Fani-Kayode, however, noted that he is never broke as being speculated
A former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has replied Nigerians who said he is broke and wanted to seek refuge in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
PM News reports that he said he has 55 domestic staff in his house alone and pays them regularly, adding that he is not broke as being championed by his haters.
Legit.ng gathered that Fani-Kayode, in an article on his blog said people insulted him and said he was broke because he had talks with two APC governors.
“You insult me and say I am broke because I had talks with two APC governors. Do you know that I spend more on my monthly salary bill in one month than some of these people that are claiming I am broke earn in 5 or 10 years?
“I have 55 domestic staff in my house alone. Not one of them gets below 70,000 naira per month which is higher than the national minimum wage."
Fani-Kayode said for the last 60 years of his life, God has been good to him as he caused him to excel, prosper and flourish and that from beginning to end.
“You say I make money through politics, meanwhile I left public office in 2007 which is 13 years ago! Does that make sense to you? In any case, is politics my only source of income in the world?
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that amid his alleged plan to defect to the ruling APC, Fani-Kayode, has finally cleared the air.
It was reported that Fani-Kayode said in a Facebook post on Sunday, February 21, that over the last one week, millions of Nigerians have expressed concern about which direction he is going politically.
