Femi Fani Kayode wrote this afternoon on his social media handles, debunking the claim of Rotimi Amaechi, the minister of Transportation on the Channels TV that, he ran away with the sum of #2b when he was the Minister of Aviation. Read him;
“The runway at Port Harcourt International Airport was re-built and fully paid for by me when I was Minister of Aviation in 2007.
If anyone has any doubts about that they should ask Julius Berger who were the contractors. The runway was commissioned and the airport was opened shortly after we left office later that year.
Those who falsely asserted on Channels Television two years ago that I did not build the runway and that I ran away with the 2 billion naira that was used to build it are sick. We settled that matter in a debate on Channels Television two years ago.
I leave those that made this baseless and absurd allegation on national television two years ago to God. I repeat I REBUILT and COMPLETED the Port Harcourt by 2007 and the contractor did not do it for free”.
