Text of a press conference addressed by Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, Director Media and Publicity Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Organisation on April 1, 2015:
Ladies and gentlemen of the media,

Quote
We have come here today to express our gratitude to the Nigerian people for the overwhelming support that we received over the last few weeks when it comes to the issue of the Presidential election.
We fought a virile, strong, aggressive and very effective campaign on behalf of our candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan and we put the case to the Nigerian people as to why we believe that he ought to have been elected as President for a second term.
We are very proud of the efforts of our President and of our party and we are also very proud of the efforts of every single one of those who participated in the Presidential Campaign Organisation. As a Directorate we could not have asked for anything more in terms of support and encouragement from our colleagues and comrades within the party and the Campaign Organisation. I am personally very proud of my team, every single one of them; my Assistant Directors, my officers, my advisory team and every single one of those that joined hands to help us to state our case and to sell our candidate to the Nigerian people.
It has however come to a point that we must tell the world and the Nigerian people about how we feel about the outcome of the election. What we will say here  today is basically to reiterate and to reflect the words of our leader and President, President Goodluck Jonathan. We start by saying that we commend and we congratulate General Muhammadu Buhari for winning this election. We also wish to commend our President, President Goodluck Jonathan, for having the courage to concede that he has lost the election at the earliest moment and also for being able to stand up and rise above party politics and being able to speak like a statesman.
We therefore urge the Nigerian people and our teeming supporters to stand firm and continue to support the democratic process and continue to agitate for a better Nigeria. We urge them to continue to support our party the PDP as best as they can even though we lost this election. We ask them to co-operate with the incoming government and to remember that we are first and foremost Nigerians before anything else.
On the day of the election when I went to vote at Ile-Ife, I held a press conference in which I told the people that more than anything else that we should try our very best to keep the peace in this country and to keep the country moving forward. I also reminded them that in every election there will always be a winner and a loser. It is a mark of our humanity and it is also symptomatic of the type of people that we are and who we are that when the time comes we can say we fought a good fight but we lost.
And having lost, it does not mean that it is the end to the world, it just means that we need to re-group, re-organise ourselves and begin the process all over again because another elections will come in a few years time.  And that is where we are today. We have conceded that we have lost. We acknowledge the fact that we fought a good fight. We do not have any fears about the future. We did the right thing during the campaign. We have no regrets about our candidate or the way in which we conducted our campaign and we will live to fight another day
Finally let me commend all our colleagues on the other side for also standing up for what they believed in. There was absolutely nothing personal as regards this Directorate or myself. I had nothing personal against anybody. I was simply doing my job for which I have no regrets and I wish them well and I sincerely hope that they will take Nigeria to a level that we can all be proud of.
May God grant each and everyone of us peace. May He watch over our nation. May He guide our President for the next two months whilst he is still in power and thereafter and may He guide and lead the President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, in the herculean task that lies ahead for him. My prayer is that he brings our nation together, heals the wounds and that he builds the bridges in terms of religion, ethnicity and region that he needs to build in order for us to make Nigeria a better place and to ensure that Nigeria becomes a great country that she is destined to be.
I want to end this message by thanking our colleagues in the press for always responding to us so quickly and for always  being ready to hear our message and for putting it out there. Also those on the social media, both friend and foe, we thank you for your efforts. We thank our foes because they kept us on our toes and we thank our friends because they encouraged us and gave us hope.
May God grant you all peace and joy and  may you live long and prosper.
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

INEC-BUHARI-CERTIFICATE:

AT THE END OF THE DAY GEN. BUHARI HAS BEEN PRESENTED WITH AN IMPRESSIVE, HIGH STATUS AND PRESTIGIOUS CERTIFICATE MUCH MORE SIGNIFICANT THAN THE ONE NIGERIANS / PDP PREVIOUSLY WANTED HIM TO PRODUCE. ISN'T THIS LIFE SO AMAZING? DO WE STILL CONDEMN AN INNOCENT MAN WHO REALLY MEANS WELL FOR HIS COUNTRY? I GUESS THE TRUTH IS WRITTEN ALL OVER OUR FACES. DESTINY IS UNCHANGEABLE.

So FFK know how to talk like a gentleman like this , yet you allow the heat of the election get into your head by spewing hatred toward the candidature of the opposition party .....

FFK's job is done . Everything that has beginning ultimately has as END.

In life we always fight with the intention of having a reconciliation in future , but FFk didn't act like that, he did his  job as if life begins and with his position ..... 

FFK will forever reamain a judas in Nigeria politics . NO ONE will ever trust Him ........

Life is a phase , it turns around .....

To all my naijapals let us learnt a lesson in the Just concluded Presidential Election .......

God bless us all

Miss Lucia Ebitare Oki who calls herself Oceanic Insurance staff  in the day is a big time prostitute at night. Her main targets are Island big boys whether married or single. Close source also said that she has contracted the deadly HIV and has promised to distribute willingly to men who come her way, and my stupid irresponsible Fiance is a victim; luckily i'm safe after a test.  This is a warning to all the men who may cross her path. Beware!
