Femi Fani Kayode VS Daily Trust Journalist..
A former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has come below heavy criticism for abusing journalists throughout a press convention in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.
In a video that had since gone viral on social media, Fani-Kayode is seen giving the Daily Trust reporter, Eyo Charles, dressing down for asking him a “stupid question”.
The journalist was stated to have requested Fani-Kayode who “bankrolled” his current tour of a number of southern states.
However, the previous minister, who was infuriated by the query, stated the journalist was silly.
“I’m saying this on stay TV. What kind of silly query is that? Bankrolling who? Do who you might be speaking to? I cannot take any questions from this man. What kind of insulting query is that? Which bankroll? To do what? Who can provide me cash for something? Who do you assume you might be speaking to? Go and report your self to your writer? Please don’t insult me right here. I don’t wish to take any questions from this man.
“I could see from your face before you got here, how stupid you are. Don’t ever talk to me like that. Who do you think you’re talking to? Bankroll who? You think I am one of those ones you… from who, when, how? You have a small mind, a very small mind. Don’t judge me by your own standards.”
However, the viral video has been trending on social media for a number of hours with many condemning Fani-Kayode’s outbursts.
Though, some folks defended Fani-Kayode’s response, insisting that the query was insulting.
But the Nigeria Union of Journalists condemned the previous minister.
But for my part, I Richard Idasenibo sees that query as an insult and pointless. Asking FFK who “bankrolled” his current tour of a number of southern states is not only insulting however embarrassing.
Many Nigerians condemning FFK most likely couldn’t comprehend that assertion, that’s why they go about dragging FFK.
The query is STUPID! easy. I’m a Blogger and journalist as effectively, however I have to say..that query is unreasonable. How a lot does it value to tour round Nigerian states? If musicians can, how way more FFK former Minister of Aviation.
Let’s name a spade a spade! Though he overreacted. But if I had been him, I’d do the worst! You don’t ask me silly query within the identify of journalism.
Some of you condemning him, will do the more severe should you’re in his footwear. Nigerians and hypocrisy. SMH.
The half is I dislike if the place he stated
“Do you know who you are talking to?”
Actually Sir FFK with due respect, you’re no one. I hate when folks use such assertion on their fellow human.
Anyway, that’s my opinion. How about you?
Between Femi Fani Kayode & Daily Trust Journalist, Who’s At Fault? – Was It A Question or Assertion As Claimed By FFK. And Did He Over React?
