Fani-Kayode Explodes, Calls U.S. Senator, Patrick Leahy “A Confused, Ignorant, Petty-Minded Racist Yankee”

PDP Campaign Director, Femi Fani Kayode

Former Director of Media and Publicity of Goodluck Jonathan’s National Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, who now prefers to be called Olufemi Olu-Kayode has not taken kindly to the United States of America Senator, Patrick Leah who had recently described Nigeria soldiers as rapists.

“U.S. Senator, Patrick Leahy, the convener of the Leahy Act, has called our Armed Forces “rapists and murderers”. He is nothing but scum- a typically confused, ignorant, petty-minded and racist yankee.”

Reacting to Senator Leah’s unfortunate bill on the sale of arm to Nigeria to execute its war against Boko Haram today in Lagos, the former PDP Presidential campaign spokesman insisted that the refusal of U.S. to sell arms to the Nigerian Army is because it has been aiding the Boko Haram militants. He accused the U.S. government of being slow in tagging Boko Haram as a terrorist group till the group had caused soo much havoc in the land.

“The U.S. government helped Boko Haram immensely by refusing to classify them as a terrorist organisation until 2014 and by refusing to sell us arms to fight them. Worst still, they imposed an international arms embargo on us (Nigeria) so that we could not buy arms from anyone else.

“Why did the U.S. not invoke the Leahy Act against Israel, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Turkey, Pakistan, Qatar, Somalia, Kenya, Yemen, Ukraine and Iraq for human rights violations? Why is it only Nigeria that they have refused to sell arms to and that they have imposed an international arms embargo on even though we are fighting a civil war against a relentless and evil enemy?” [myad]
