They gave me only N800million to run the Goodluck Jonathan campaign for three months'' - Fani Kayode speaks on corruption case

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that the corruption charges against him are politically motivated.

Fani-Kayode also said that he was given only N800 million to run the Goodluck Jonathan campaign for three months. He made the comments on Wednesday, July 20, 2016, while speaking on Channels TV.
“I have done absolutely nothing wrong and neither have any of my co-accused. I saw this coming the day we lost elections and it was announced that the other side had won,” he said. 
“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.

“You asked a direct question, did I receive money from any government agency for my operations within the campaign? The answer is no. 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. 
“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,” he added.
Fani-Kayode recently regained his freedom after being held by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for 67 days on money laundering charges.
