A former Minister of Aviation and Head of Media of Goodluck Jonathan 2015 Campaign organization, Chief Femi Fani Kayode, has apologised to Col Sambo Dasuki (Rtd) over a tweet from his (FFK) handle naming the former NSA as one of those that betrayed Goodluck Jonathan.
The apology was contained in a tweet thread on Fani Kayode’s Twitter handle at 11:52am on Monday, 19 April, 2021.
The tweet on his handle @Realffk reads …
“Yesterday a member of my social media team tweeted an allegation about those that betrayed @GEJonathan during the 2015 election with my handle. 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.
“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.” Concludes the tweet.
