The Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) of the Akwa Ibom state chapter has ordered its members to shun the press conference organised by the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode.
Fani-Kayode, who is currently in Akwa-Ibom, had thrown insults at a reporter with DailyTrust, Eyo Charles, for demanding to know who was financing his nationwide trips in Cross River last week.
The ex-Minister, had began a tour visit to some of the states, especially those controlled by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) states in July, visited Cross River last week.
Fani-Kayode had poured insults on the reporter, regarding him as “very stupid”. He added;
“I could see from your face before you got here, how stupid you are. Don’t ever talk to me like that. Who do you think you’re talking to? Bankroll who?
“You think I am one of those ones you… from who, when, how? You have a small mind, a very small mind. Don’t judge me by your own standards,” he had said.
His comments had attracted criticism from many Nigerians and groups, including the NUJ which described him as “intolerant and unstable”.
