*Announces Change Of Name
Spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has washed off his hands from a wedding ceremony of his daughters, (name withheld) which comes up next Sunday in Lagos.
Fani-Kayode made this known in Lagos in response to a question on the marriage, shortly after he was discharged and acquitted by the Lagos High Court on the case filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
He said, “I wont attend the wedding, am not aware of it and I did not give my approval”
The bride to be is a daughter to Fani-Kayode’s first wife, Yemisi Wada, who is a daughter to the former governor of old Kwara State, Adamu Attah.
Efforts to reach the mother of the bride to be proved abortive as calls placed to her GSM line were never answered.
However, the former Minister after obtaining victory over his case with the EFCC announced a change of family name, claiming that since God gave him victory over torments from the anti-graft agencies and others who wanted him to end up in jail.
He said, “As a mark of honor and respect for the Lord and as an everlasting testimony of my love for and dedication to him, I wish to make it known to the Nigerian public that as from today my name will be changed.
“It will no longer be David Oluwafemi Fani-Kayode but instead, it shall be David Oluwafemi Olukayode. Olukayode means “the Lord has brought me joy” and today he has done precisely that.
“As from this day, in honor of him and as a small tribute to my love for and total dependence on Him, that shall remain my family name. Once again, I give thanks to God for all that has happened to me and for this great deliverance. To him be all the glory”
