The Director of Media & Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation and former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, called Amaechi’s father a palm wine-tapping peasant via his facebook as a response to Governor Rotimi Amaechi‘s remarks about the fomer minister’s father at an APC town hall in Abuja yesterday.
Femi Fani-Kayode took to his facebook account to express his disgust at Amaechi‘s words by clarifying on who is who. He stated;
I hear that Rotimi Amaechi was talking about my father and his father today at the APC town hall meeting in Abuja.
The difference between his father and my father is that his father was a palm wine-tapping peasant whilst mine was the man that successfully moved the motion for Nigeria’s independence. The difference is clear.
