"I Am Not Broke, I Have 55 Maids In My House And Pay Them Above 70k Monthly" - Fani-Kayode Replies To Critics

 Femi Fani-Kayode
Former Nigerian Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has taken a swipe at those saying that the reason for his alleged defection from the People's Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressive Party (APC) is because he is presently having financial issues.

The politician who during an interview session responded to critics boasts of having 55 domestic staffs in his house and pays them above 70,000 Naira as salary on a monthly basis, without owing any of them.

Femi added that he employed them in other to keep them off unemployment so as to help them look after and feed their families.

His statements read in part;

"You insult me and say I am broke because I had talks with two APC governors. Do you know that what I spend on salary in one month is more than what some of these people that are claiming I am broke earn in five or 10 years? 

"I have 55 domestic staff in my house alone. Not one of them gets below 70,000 naira per month which is higher than the national minimum wage. 

"I do not owe salaries and I feed each of the three square meals every day. I do all this just to help them and to ensure they can look after and feed their families. Does that sound like a broke? 

"That is my little contribution to the welfare of our people because I certainly do not need so many staff. I employ them just to keep them off the unemployment line. 

"Apart from that, do you know how many people I give scholarships to and how many people’s children I feed and educate? Do you know how many other families I am responsible for in terms of day-to-day living? 

"The Bible says “be your brother’s keeper” and I do these things unto the Lord. I do them and I will never stop even when my good is repaid with evil. 

"The Lord has always provided for me and given me the fat of the land. He has always caused me to be a blessing to others though I do not make noise about it. 

"For the last 60 years of my life, He has been good to me. He has caused me to excel, prosper and flourish and from beginning to end He has always been with me and mine. 

"You say I make money through politics; meanwhile, I left public office in 2007 which is 13 years ago! Does that make sense to you? In any case, is politics my only source of income? 

"Am I your conventional politician who craves elective office? Do I even attend their meetings? I have been in this game since 1990! 

"I have been making contributions to current affairs, political discourse, and politics for the past 31 years which is long before most of today’s governors or Ministers even knew the meaning of the word."
