President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide, Bashir Ahmad, has reacted to the trending video of the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, where attacked a Daily Trust reporter, Charles Eyo.
The former Minister in the video could be seen raising his voice on the reporter, while he noted that he has a short fuse.
The development has been condemned by Nigerians.
Fani-Kayode while speaking on the incident noted that his political enemies sent the reporter to embarrass him.
The Daily Trust reporter had sought to know who bankrolled Fani-Kayode’s tour of the state.
The question got Fani-Kayode offended and he described him as being stupid, accusing him of being sponsored by his perceived enemies to embarrass him.
President Buhari’s Special Assistant on New Media in his reaction said people don’t have short fuse but are not properly trained.
In a tweet, Ahmad wrote: “Personally, I don’t believe in a short fuse, if you’re well-trained, you’re well-trained. I was taught from my early days that no matter how provoked, it shouldn’t ever be an excuse for me to insult others, especially those who are older than me. One of my principles!”
