Femi Fani Kayode Apologizes To Women He Mentioned In His Last Article


FFK mentioned the names of some Ibo women in his last article, ”A Word For Those Who Say I am A Tribalist” and people think it was quite disrespectful and even asked me to edit their names, which i did. Here is a press statement from Mr. Bisi Lawal, the press
secretary to Chief Femi Fani-Kayode
apologizing for his actions.
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
Mr. Bisi Lawal, Press Secretary to Chief
Femi Fani-Kayode
