- The former Minister queries erring social media staff and suspended him from his employment
- FFK insists Dasuki is not a traitor but served GEJ diligently, faithfully and loyally.
Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode popularly known as FFK has retraced the vile statement made against Colonel Dasuki and some others via his Twitter handle, saying it was done without his knowledge and authorisation.
A list of people who betrayed former President Goodluck Jonathan in his 2nd term presidential bid in 2015 was released via FF’K’s Twitter handle naming Dasuki, a retired Nigerian military officer who served as National Security Adviser to Jonathan and briefly to Buhari, amongst others. FFK’s, however, removed the tweet from his page, although, the picture of some of those mentioned were still available.Taking to his Twitter handle on Monday, FFK apologised for including Dasuki in the list, insisting that he was loyal to the former President. He further noted that he has not only queried the member of his social media team who put his name but also had him suspended. “Yesterday a member of my social media team tweeted an allegation about those that betrayed @GEJonathan during the 2015 election with my handle”, he began.

“Col. Sambo Dasuki was one of the names mentioned. This was done without my authorisation & in error. Col. Dasuki was a faithful & loyal member of the Jonathan admin. & for the 4 years that he was in detention I spoke up for him more than anyone else. It was unfortunate & unacceptable for his name to be on that list & I have not only queried the individual that tweeted it but also suspended him from my employment”, he added.
Keen on redeeming the image of Dasuki that was tarnished, FFK further went ahead to say that the former NSA remains a dear friend and brother to him. He added that the Dasukis and the Fani-Kayode have had a long standing relationship which predates his generation as Dasuki’s father was very close to his father. Regretting any embarrassment that the list might have caused the former NSA, Femi Fani-Kayode insisted Dasuki is not a traitor and he served the former president as NSA diligently, faithfully and loyally.

“Apart from the fact that Col. Sambo Dasuki remains a dear friend & brother, the Dasukis & the Fani-Kayode’s have a long-standing relationship which predates this generation.For example Col. Dasuki’s father,the late Sultan Ibrahim Dasuki, was very close to mine. Sambo Dasuki is not a traitor, he never worked against the Jonathan election bid in 2015 & he served Pres. Jonathan as NSA diligently, faithfully & loyally. I regret any embarrassment that this error may have caused him or his loved ones. The offending tweet has been removed“, he added.
