Yesterday’s assertion by the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff that former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode will not go scot free for linking him with the Boko Haram sect, has been described by the latter as an empty threat.
Sheriff, at his formal take over as National Chairman on Monday, said Fani-Kayode would not go scot-free for alleging that he nurtured the terrorist group into the monster it has presently become.
But addressing journalists shortly after the opening session of PDP Former Ministers’ Forum on Tuesday, the former Minister said it was unfortunate that Sheriff, who came in as National Chairman to move the party forward, was issuing threats to members.
“This, I think is unacceptable and nobody is intimidated. The fact of the matter is that he wants to set Nigeria on fire, he also wants to set PDP on fire and that fire is going to consume him and him alone,” he stated.
Fani-Kayode maintained he is more than ready to meet Sheriff in court, threatening that, “I am not like anybody he has met before in his life. He will meet a resistance he never expected.”
