The war of words between former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode and former candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ondo State, Jimoh Ibrahim, took a new turn on Sunday after the former described Mr. Ibrahim as the “biggest Judas” in Nigerian politics.
Mr. Kayode was reacting to a taped confession where Ibrahim claimed that he deliberately distracted PDP’s candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, from having a smooth election campaign.
Mr. Ibrahim had also alleged that Jegede lost the Ondo seat because Fani-Kayode supported him.
The businessman was quoted saying: “If you want to win any election, pay Femi not to support you”.
I had no doubt that Jegede would lose as Femi Fani-Kayode was supporting him. If you want to win any election, pay Femi not to support you.

The ex-Presidential campaign spokesman in reacting, labelled Ibrahim a Judas, claiming that “he sold his party for money”.
The biggest Judas in Nigerian politics today is Jimoh Ibrahim. He sold his party for money. He lives like Judas and he will end like Judas.
