BREAKING: Femi Fani Kayode Sends Out Apology To Journalist After Calling Him “Stupid”

Femi Fani Kayode has this Wednesday apologized for his use of words on a journalist in a press conference in Calabar.

Femi was seen in a video using the word “stupid” after a journalist asked him a question on who is bankrolling his trip across the country which turned out to have gotten Femi angry.

In a series of tweet this Wednesday, Femi tendered his apology to the Daily Trust journalist and members of the Pen Profession.

“I met with my advisors & I wish to say the following. I hereby withdraw the word "stupid" which I used in my encounter with a journalist in Calabar. I have many friends in the media who I offended by losing my cool & using such words. I hereby express my regrets for doing so”, the tweet read.

“I do however wish to state categorically that no threat of physical harm was ever made to the journalist in question and neither did I send anyone to threaten him. Anyone that says otherwise is lying and I challenge them to bring the proof”, it continued.

“I would never seek to physically harm a journalist. For the last 30 years I have defended & worked with journalists & fought for the right of freedom of exiression. I am  also very close to many in that profession”.

“I would be the last to seek to disparage those that are honorable and noble within its ranks. I hope that this will assuage the pain and anger of anyone that was hurt or offended by this ugly episode”.

“I have now put this matter behind me and moved on. Now my tour of the South continues. Moving to another state today”, the tweet concluded.
