A former minister of aviation, Femi Fani Kayode, told newsmen that he is not hiding from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The ex minister also described as false, reports that said he has been in hiding.

Fani Kayode said “My reaction to the allegation that I have gone underground and that I am hiding from the EFCC” and made available to Vanguard early this morning.

“I have just read some absurd media reports in which have quoted their sources in the EFCC, as saying that I had gone underground and that I was hiding from them. This is false. I have not been invited by the EFCC by letter and neither have they phoned me or attempted to reach me in any other way. I have been in my Abuja home for the last few weeks and I am not hiding from anyone.”

He also said he is not a coward, and threatened to resist any attempt to intimidate him.

Fani Kayode said he has been expecting a call or an invitation letter from the anti-graft agency, but he has not gotten any yet.

He also added that some people are trying to demonise him by making him look like a fugitive.

The former minister said he will honour any invitation from the EFCC, to shed light on the presidential campaign funds of former President Goodluck Jonanthan.

Fani Kayode also said  “This is also to justify what the EFCC wish to do which is to arrest me in public, humiliate me or to storm my home and lock me up indefinitely. There is no need for all that drama and if it happens that way the Nigerian people will know why. I have no fear of the EFCC, I will respond to their invitation any day and anytime they send it to me and I will help them to clarify whatever issues they wish to raise in any way that I can.

“Others were invited in a civilised way and were treated in a humane and decent manner. I really do wonder why I should be treated differently, criminalised in the newspapers in this way and not even afforded the common courtesy of a formal invitation by them. I await their letter or their call and I leave those that wish to give the impression that I am running from them to God. “

Fani-Kayode declared on Friday, April 22, 2016, told newsmen that he has no knowledge of the where the cash for Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign came from.
