"PDP NWC cannot intimidate me" - Fani-Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayode says he cannot be intimidated by threat of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)‎ to discipline him for calling for their sack.

Fani-Kayode, the Director of Media and Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, stated this while speaking to newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday.

He spoke shortly after the resignation of the National Chairman of PDP, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu.

According to him, I am vindicated by Mu’azu’s resignation.

He, however, insisted on total overhauling of the party with the resignation of other members of the NWC for the party to return to its former glory.

“I am glad that about seven hours after I said somebody should resign, somebody listened and stepped down. Every single one of them should go,” Fani-Kayode said.

“I was a special adviser to ‎President Olusegun Obasanjo for three years under PDP and I served as a Minister too.

“I served as Director, Media and Publicity of PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation. In a sane clime, party members should be able to criticise their colleagues when they go wrong.

“Did they ask for Gov. Ayo Fayose to be disciplined, ‎did they query Gov. Babangida Aliyu and Gov. Sule Lamido?”
According to him, these persons have at different occasions asked for the resignation of the PDP NWC members but they are not reprimanded. He wondered why they want him reprimanded.

He said as a citizen, he had the right to freely express himself, adding that he would never be cowed or intimidated by the threats from the NWC.
