A former minister of aviation, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode threw caution to the wind when a reporter asked him who was funding his trips to the South-South states.
Fani-Kayode felt embarrassed by the questions and left the press conference, blowing hot.
“What type of stupid question is that?
“Do you know who you are talking to?
“I will not take any question from this man?
“Which bankroll, to do what, who can give me money for anything?
“I could see from your face before you got here how stupid you are.
“You have a small mind, very small mind.
“Don’t judge me by your own standard.
“I have been in politics since 1990.
“I am not one of these politicians…
“I have been locked up by this government,
“I have been persecuted more than most of the politicians you follow for brown envelope.
“I spend, I don’t take.
“I am not a poor man, I have never been and I will never be.
“Bankroll who, a former minister, a lawyer?
“Don’t ever try it with me again, look at me very well.
“I will hit you hard [If you try it again].
“And if any person sent you to ask that question and gave you brown envelope, go and tell them you got more than they bargained for.
“[You are] very rude.
“That is not the standard of Daily Trust at all and I will report you to your publisher.
“Somebody has been on the road for how long and you are coming to ask this question, very stupid.”
