Controversial playboy ex-minister Femi Fani Kayode appears to regret his well-publicised claims of amorous relationships with three Igbo big girls and has reportedly apologised.
A statement attributed to Mr. Bisi Lawal, who introduced himself as Press Secretary to Chief Fani-Kayode, said:
“Chief Femi Fani-Kayode hereby expresses his deepest regrets for mentioning the names of three distinguished Nigerian ladies that he was once associated with in his last article titled ‘A Word For Those Who Say I am A Tribalist’. He meant no harm by doing so and neither did he at any point make references to having had any sexual relations with any of these ladies when they were associated with him as is being suggested by some members of the public. He was simply trying to emphasise the fact that he has nothing against the Igbo people and that his friendship with these three ladies in particular over the years provided some evidence of that. For the record he has not seen Madame Chioma Anasoh, Chief Adaobi Kate Uchegbu and Ambassador Bianca Onoh in many years and he admits that it was inappropiate for him to have mentioned their names in the essay, to use them as a point of reference in a public discussion or to make any references whatsoever to the nature of their past association. All references to them have been erased from the updated version of the essay. Chief Fani-Kayode has reached two of the ladies concerned and he has personally conveyed his unreserved apology to them both and to their families for his indiscretion. He shall endeavour to reach the third lady to do the same in the next few days. Chief Fani-Kayode has nothing more to say on this matter and would prefer to remain focused on issues of national importance and not of a personal nature.”
As earlier reported by News Express, Fani-Kayode had in a Facebook article on Tuesday pubclisied his “intimate relationships” with Bianca, Adaobi and Miss Chioma Anasoh while trying to prove that he is not an Igbo hater as suggested by his on-going anti-Igbo campaign. Bianca and Adaobi in their responses accused him of unwarranted provocation but neither confirmed nor denied his claims. Chioma is yet to be traced and has yet to utter a word on the issue.
News Express cannot confirm how authentic Femi’s purported apology is since he has yet to publish it on his Facebook and twitter accounts as he usually does.
