The Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima has said that the spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign organization, Femi Fani-Kayode is physically developed but still a child in his mind.
Shettima made the comments on Sunday, March 8, in response to Fani-Kayode’s allegation that he had inside knowledge into the activities of Boko Haram.
The governor also urged Nigerians, via his media aide, Isa Gusau, to ignore Fani-Kayode as he wasn’t someone to be taken seriously.
"Femi Fani-Kayode is one Nigerian that is physically an adult but mentally an infant,” Gusau said.
“We all know that going into exchange with an infant is like having a dialogue with the blind, deaf and dumb, this is why it is thoughtless for any serious minded person to exchange words with Femi Fani Kayode," he added.
"…not to talk of someone like Governor Kashim Shettima who has too many serious issues he is competently handling with patriotism as a result of which he was not only exonerated but also commended by a Presidential Fact-finding committee on the missing Chibok schoolgirls that was set up by the same Presidency Kayode works for, and this in addition to the Governor being the one that secured admissions into an International school for the escaped Chibok schoolgirls and granted them scholarships, for which and other efforts, he is highly respected by those who know him or have come in contact with him in Nigeria and within the International community,” Gusau continued.
Fani-Kayode also accused Shettima and the leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) of knowing the whereabouts of the missing Chibok girls.
