President Jonathan Is Not A Liar, Fani-Kayode Speaks On King Of Morocco’s Charge

“Our President is certainly not a liar. Our President and our government have done Nigeria proud when it comes to the conduct of foreign affairs over the last few years and when it comes to building bridges with other nations. This is particularly so when it comes to our relationship with other African countries.”
This was part of the reaction by the director of media and publicity for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, to the controversy over telephone conversation between President Goodluck Jonathan and the King of Morocco, which led to the Moroccan government withdrawing its Ambassador to Nigeria.
However, Fani-Kayode also roped-in opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) where he said, in a statement today that for APC to even begin to assume that it is true that President Jonathan or any of the government officials lied in this episode with the King of Morocco and for them to so readily accept the suggestion that the government had done anything wrong or that it had somehow misled Nigerians about what actually transpired “speaks volumes.”
Fani-Kayode said that President had never told lie, but that the only “liars are the APC and their perfidious and conflicted spokesman, Lai Mohammed.”
“Any Nigerian or any Nigerian political party that joins hands with foreigners to denigrate our nation, to belittle our foreign policy, to undermine our credibility in the comity of nations or to work against our country’s vital core interests by assuming the worst about the conduct of our foreign affairs is simply a traitor and is not worthy of being called a Nigerian.
“Once again, the APC has shown, by their plea for a clarification on this matter, that they are a party that simply cannot possibly comprehend or grasp the complexities of national leadership or the conduct of foreign affairs.
“They have proved that they will always put their own personal and narrow party interests before the interests of our people and our nation. The basic lesson that they need to learn is this: in a time of war, you do not join hands with foreign governments or foreign kings to undermine the interest of your nation or to denigrate your President.
