Fani-Kayode dares Paden to write on how Buhari, APC funded 2015 campaign

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has asked the author of the biography on President Muhammadu Buhari, John Paden, to write on how the former General sourced for his 2015 presidential campaign funds.


Fani-Kayode, was reacting to a section of the book which stated that President Buhari had documents signed by former President Goodluck Jonathan, which proved that the latter sought for what he described as “extra-budgetary funds”.

He called the claim “a pernicious lie that has no basis in rationality, reason or truth”.

“There is absolutely no evidence to substantiate it and I challenge Paden or President Buhari himself to make those letters and signed applications for ‘extra budgetary funds’ public.

“The whole thing is simply an attempt to further tarnish and demonise Jonathan and all those that served under him before the world and I believe that that is a crying shame.

“Amongst many other things he also suggested that other senior figures in the political and military configuration in our country committed serious crimes and indulged in damning acts of corruption without being specific or even providing details of those acts.

“Instead of doing so he suggested that the individuals concerned, which included President Olusegun Obasanjo, would have been prosecuted, brought to justice and called to account for their allegedly dastardly acts whilst in governnent if not for the fact that this could have had implications for the stability of the nation and national security.

“Obasanjo, who is always quick off the mark and who was actually present at the launching of the book in Abuja as was Tinubu, responded in a measured manner by saying that there were “some insinuations” in it which he disagreed with.”

The PDP presidential spokesman further dared Paden to write on “how Buhari and his team managed the 19 billion naira that was given to him in cash by the then sitting Governor of the leading and largest state in the south west and the 24.6 billion naira that was given to him in cash and in one day (which was recorded on video before being handed over) by another leading south western politician.

“In addition to that, he should tell us precisely how much the then Governors of Rivers and Kano states and the present Governors of Ogun and Kwara states amongst many others contributed to Buhari’s campaign and where they got the money from.

“Since everyone is claiming to be holy and righteous in this matter let us all get there and publicly exchange notes. After all the Nigerian public, and indeed the entire world, has a right to know.”



  1. Do u still take Buhari and his biography serious, even his waec case is enough to throw his book in the red sea.
    His propaganda won’t last Long.

  2. Shameless APC and his evil supporters. Even if Buhari excrates publicly APC and her supporters will leak it up and give praises to him, the are already blind folded and deaf that they no longer differentiate good from evil as long as it comes from their dead brain father Buhari

  3. FFK. If you have your facts write your own book also instead of asking Paden to write. However, the revelation of what happens in the ONSA under Dasuki cannot be wished away. It will be interesting to an average Nigerian to know what is or has happened in high places

  4. We are waiting for Buhari’s explanations on these allegations. How can someone be in a house for 15 out of 16 years and then claim not to be part of what happened during the 16 years simply because he has occupied a new house? All Nigerian politicians are VERY corrupt without apology.

  5. Ffk’s ranting is a disingenuous appeal to philistinism.The pdp should try to win the next election and probe Buhari and his party.The crime of funding election from arms funds and allowing our soldiers to die needless death is deplorable,I dear say that Nigerians are unanimously behind the president on this and if Pmb also set aside patriotism and his inviolable integrity to fund election with public treasury he will have Nigerians to contend with,but let Ffk give us some break.He is not making any sense.

  6. My candid advice for pdp and the party spoke’s man ffk is that they should give Pmb enough time to proof himself and if he betrays the Nigeria as Pdp have done some sixteen years a go, then he will have to convince Nigeria why Apc will not be discarded. For now ffk is highly irrelevant.
