Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of aviation and Spokesman of the presidential campaign of former President Goodluck Jonathan has revealed that he only got N800 million, being 10 per cent of his demands, for running the presidential campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He declared that the charges filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) were politically motivated adding that he has no regrets working for Jonathan.
“Our director of finance sent money out to the various directors (including me) from our own private company account for us to run our operations,” he revealed to Channels Television.
“I was given only 10% of what I needed (very small) about 800 million naira to run a campaign for three months and we utilised that money.”
“I have done absolutely nothing wrong and neither has any of my co-accused. I saw this coming the day we lost elections and it was announced that the other side had won.”
“I refused to leave the country just as I refused to leave the country in 2008 when I was accused of things then.”
“I have absolutely no doubt that in the end of this particular exercise I will be declared innocent by the court simply because it is very obvious that this is a politically motivated allegation.”
