Fani-Kayode: PDP presidential campaign spokeman Fani-Kayode: PDP presidential campaign spokeman

The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation on has recently insisted that Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State is culpable in the April 2014 abduction of over 200 girls from Government Secondary School, Chibok by Boko Haram insurgents.

The Director of Media and Publicity of the campaign organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, alleged that the governor, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari and the party's spokesperson, Lai Mohammed knew the whereabouts of the missing girls.

Mr. Shettima, however, denied the allegation, saying no one should take Mr. Fani-Kayode serious as he “is one Nigerian that is physically an adult but mentally an infant. We all know that going into exchange with an infant is like having a dialogue with the blind, deaf and dumb.”

But the PDPPCO in a statement recently said it was time for Nigerians to know the truth about the APC leaders and the way in which some of them emerged to become governors.

“The case of Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno state is instructive. This is a man who emerged as the governor only after the man that won the nomination to become the flag-bearer of his party, Alhaji Mode Fannami Gubio was mysteriously gunned down in the sanctity of his home by a group of unknown gunmen,” the statement said.

“It was after Gubio was killed in cold blood that Kashim, who came second in the primary, emerged as the gubernatorial candidate of the party. The question is: Who killed Gubio to make way for Shettima and whether it is true that the murder had the Boko Haram link.

“Could it be, as many suspect, that Boko Haram were more comfortable with Shettima as governor than with Gubio? Is that why they killed him? Is it true that Shettima is friend with Boko Haram and that he paid them protection money for a number of years? These are just some of the questions that Governor Kashim Shettima must answer.”
