Femi Fani Kayode.

Fani-Kayode made the comment while speaking to journalists on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, after a meeting of former PDP ministers in Abuja.

Former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff will be consumed by the fire he is trying to start in Nigeria.

Fani-Kayode made the comment while speaking to journalists on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, after a meeting of former PDP ministers in Abuja.

“First of all, my first question is who is he? Who is Ali Modu Sheriff? Is he a Nigerian or a Chadian? Or is he both? That’s the first thing,” the former minister said.

“The second thing is that you come in as National Chairman or claim you are National Chairman and that you want to move a party forward and the first thing you do is start issuing threats, which I think is unacceptable and nobody is intimidated.

“The fact of the matter is this, He wants to set Nigeria on fire. He also wants to set the PDP on fire and that fire will consume him and him alone. As regards his personal threat to me, I am more than ready for him. I am waiting for him and I assure him that unlike anybody that he has ever met before in his life, he will meet a resistance that he never banked on.

“I am not intimidated. I cannot be intimidated and I will quote Shakespeare for you. In Macbeth, he said something which I have always found very interesting. Beautiful line in Macbeth. He said I shall fight until the flesh is hard for my bone and damned be he who first cries oh in this issue.

“We will remove him. We will ensure that he does not remain National Chairman because he has divided this party and this meeting we are having today will take a decision on that and I would not like to pre-empt their decision.

“I sincerely hope that all the other stakeholders of the party recognize that this man is divisive, he is unacceptable; he is unfit and he is somebody that none of us has any respect for and cannot move our party forward,” he added.

Sheriff had earlier threatened Fani-Kayode saying that he would not go scot free for linking him with Boko Haram.

The former minister has insisted that the new PDP Chairman plays an important role in the terror sect.
