Shehu Sani schools Fani-Kayode on relating with journalists

Senator Shehu Sani

Senator Shehu Sani has advised former minister of aviation Femi Fani-Kayode on improving his relationship with journalists after the latter’s recent outburst.

Mr Fani-Kayode appeared in a video on Tuesday verbally assaulting a reporter Charles Eyo who asked the ex-minister if his recent tour around the country was being ‘bankrolled’ by someone.

The incident occurred last week when the former minister visited Cross River State during his tour of the southern region.

Without mentioning the ex-minister’s name, Sani wrote on Twitter on Wednesday: “When a journalist ask questions, it’s to you; when you answer, it’s to the public.”

Fani-Kayode has since withdrawn his disparaging remarks directed at the journalist.

He also denied sending his aides to threaten Mr Eyo who works with Daily Trust.
