Journalist's Assault: I Allowed My Anger To Becloud My Better Judgement - FEMI FANI-KAYODE


  • Says Action Not Worthy Of A Leader 

Former Nigeria's Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode on Friday (yesterday) said: “I very much regret the Cross-River State incident, I let my anger becloud my better judgement. 

"I deeply regret my actions on that day. 

"My response was disproportionate and unacceptable, that is why I had to apologize to my family, friends and the Media world.

“No leader should ever be found wanting on such. 

"I have reached out to the person in question and I am still reaching out to him again in love personally to say I deeply regret my actions towards him on that very day."

The former Aviation Minister who assaulted a journalist for asking him who bankrolled his tour, stated this during a media chat to mark the end of his visit to Akwa Ibom State, insisting that nobody is bankrolling his tour.

While describing his visits across the country as a fact finding assessment meant to evolve strategies that could help solve the country’s challenges, Femi Fani-Kayode again tendered an apology over the media outburst in Calabar, Cross River State, saying it is an action he regretted.

According to Femi Fani-Kayode: “I am not being bankrolled by anyone. If I am being funded for this fact finding mission, I won’t be able to have a mind of my own.”
