Fani Kayode Replies Soludo, Says You Are Confused, ConflictedLatest News, News, Uncategorized Monday, January 26th, 2015
Ayodele Afolabi, Abuja – The Director of Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode has replied to Professor Chukwuma Soludo’s criticism of the economy under President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration saying that he is confused and lost touch with reality.
He noted that Soludo’s scathing remark was coming at a time when Nigeria has just won the prestigious award of being designated as the largest economy in Africa and this has happened under the watch of President Goodluck Jonathan and no-one else.
On the advise that Jonathan should not run, Fani-Kayode said “that the President should not run in this election and that he should throw in the towel is absurd and self-deprecating.”
He said that Soludo is far too sophisticated to be in the opposition saying ”
The truth is that Soludo is far too educated, civilised and advanced to be in the opposition. He belongs to the modern age and not the dark ages.”
The statement partly reads:
“I read Charles Soludu’s contribution to the debate with amusement. I will be gentle with him because I have a soft spot for him. He has criticised the President, his government and his handling of the economy.
“Needless to say my friend and brother Charles Soludo is confused and conflicted. He seems to have lost touch with reality and this is what often happens when you spend too much time with the Buharists.
“The truth is that Soludo is far too educated, civilised and advanced to be in the opposition. He belongs to the modern age and not the dark ages. I pray that sooner than later he comes to his senses and he sees the light. One thousand Muhammadu Buhari’s cannot match one Goodluck Jonathan in terms of tolerance, compassion, performance or output.
“Buhari cannot even begin to understand the complex nature of the economy or the immense problems that we are facing in this country whilst Jonathan not only understands them but is also making a gallant effort at solving them.”
