- According to FFK, it is important for presidential candidates to understand that elections are not won outside the country
The recent travels made by key candidates contesting the 2023 presidential election have come under condemnation by the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Dino Melaye's remarks on Kashim Shettima
Also reacting to remarks by a former lawmaker, Dino Melaye describing APC vice-presidential candidate Kashim Shettima as a grand commander of bandits, Fani-Kayode said the PDP is a drowning party.
"These are nonsensical words, spoken on behalf of a nonsensical man, who is running a nonsensical campaign.
“The assertion that Dino Melaye is making is at the consequences of the failure of his candidate’s campaign within and outside Nigeria. They went to America, they went to France, they went all over the world, crawling in the corridors of those in power in the places they went and nobody was prepared to see them or discuss with them.
