Journalists boycott Fani-Kayode’s press conference in Uyo
The former Minister of Aviation, Mr Fani Kayode has been on a very hot seat after he verbally attacked a journalist with the DailyTrust Newspaper, Eyo Charles for simply asking him during a press conference who was bankrolling his nation wide trips.
Wide condemnations have continue to trail the reactions of Fani Kayode. Many have described his reactions as rude, cowardly and ungentlemanly. Although, the former Minister who retracted the word “stupid” which he used on the DailyTrust journalist has regretted his actions and also called on everyone to put the incident apart.
However, the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) Akwa Ibom chapter has directed its members to boycott a press conference planned for Femi Fani-Kayode.
In a statement on Friday, the chapter asked journalists not to attend any activity organised by the former Minister.
The ex-Minister, has been on a tour of some states, especially those controlled by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) since July.
