The spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign organization, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that the father of Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi was a "palm wine tapping peasant."

Fani-Kayode made the statement on Thursday, March 19, in response to Amaechi’s comments at a town hall meeting in Abuja.

“I hear that Rotimi Amaechi was talking about my father and his father today at the APC town hall meeting in Abuja,” the PDP spokesperson said via Facebook.

“The difference between his father and my father is that his father was a palm wine-tapping peasant whilst mine was the man that successfully moved the motion for Nigeria's independence. The difference is clear,” he added.

Fani-Kayode had earlier ridiculed Amaechi saying that he knew the governor when he used to wear one outfit for three consecutive days.
