Nigeria’s former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has waded into the raging feud between former Acting Managing Director of Interim Management Committee of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Joy Nunieh and the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio.
Nunieh had accused Akpabio of corruption and trying to harass her sexually.
Reacting to the development, Fani-Kayode said he had known Nunieh for many years and that she is not crazy and appealed to her and Akpabio to sheath their swords.
”I have known Joy Nunieh for many years. She is a very tough cookie and exceptionally intelligent. She is not crazy, wayward or flippant.
“She is a beautiful, righteous and principled lady who is a brilliant lawyer and who has always had the courage of her convictions. She is also a real fighter.
”I appeal to both her and my old friend and brother Godswill Akpabio, who I have always liked and who I have immense respect for despite our political differences, to sheath their swords,” he said.
