The Osun Ibile Forum has warned Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff to ensure that no harm comes to former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode.
The warning comes after Sheriff threatened that Fani-Kayode would not go scot free for linking him with Boko Haram.
The group’s comments were contained in a statement released by its Coordinator, Prince Adeoluwa Adesegun.
“We are using this opportunity to warn that nothing untoward should happen to one of our leaders, Chief Oluwafemi Fani-Kayode.”
“The former minister is a committed party man and he has every right to defend the credibility of his party. There is nothing on earth that should warrant a direct personal threat to a public figure like Fani-Kayode.”
“For us on this forum, we stand by Chief Fani-Kayode and we say it loud and clear that we uphold his fight for justice, credibility and due process in the reform of the PDP. He is a man known for speaking his mind and most of the time, he speaks the truth many are afraid of saying.”
“If truly Senator Sheriff is a statesman, why should he issue a threat as strong as that against a party man? At a time he should be pursuing reconciliation, is it right for the chairman to engage in an open brawl? PDP should encourage rather than silence a voice of reason like that of Fani-Kayode.”
Meanwhile, the PDP has said that Sheriff will only spend three months in office due to the controversy caused by his appointment.
