We Did Not Engage In Hate Campaign, APC Ran Malicious Campaign -Fani-Kayode Tells Metuh, OthersFeatured, Latest News, News Tuesday, May 19th, 2015
PDP’s presidential campaign spokesman, Femi Fani-Kayode has debunked claims, the campaign engaged in hate campaign.
He spoke against the backdrop that the party lost due.to hate speeches as alleged by some party officials.
According to him ” If one or two members of the NWC are so ignorant that they cannot make a distinction between virile political banter and a hate campaign that is their problem.”
He maintained that the campaign engaged the APC because the PDP ” was faced with the most effective and ruthless campaign of calumny that this country has ever known from an opposition that was ruthlessly efficient in all it’s ways and that was not prepared to spare him or take any prisoners.”
According to him “we are serious-minded, patriotic, loyal, faithful, responsible and hard-working party leaders, many of whom have either been Federal Ministers, Senators or state Governors in the past, who chose to answer a call to duty by our President and who made massive sacrifices in terms of time, energy, commitment and risk and stood up for our President when asked them to do so.”
Fani-Kayode stated in an interview in Abuja that standing up for the President when he was faced with the most vicious, malicious and hateful gunfire that this country has ever known, was not hate campaign.
The PDPPCO spokesman insisted: “The truth is that the APC media machine was awesome yet we engaged them fire for fire and bullet for bullet and I do not regret that.”
“If we had not done so we would have lost the election by at least 10 million more votes than we did. We spoke the truth, we engaged the enemy on all fronts and we not only fought them to a standstill but for the first time since the establishment of the APC they were put on the defensive. This was a great achievement for which we ought to be thanked and not one for which we should be maligned, misrepresented and insulted.”
