Popular Nigerian politician and former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode have rubbished claims by some Nigerians that he is broke after he joined the All Progressive Congress, APC.
In an article released on Tuesday, February 23, published by Kemi Filani news, Femi Fani Kayode claimed that he has 55 domestic staff in his house that he pays them not less than 70,000 naira every month.
According to him, he does not need all that number of domestic workers but because he wants to take them out of unemployment, he has to do it.
“You insult me and say I am broke because I had talks with two APC Governors.
“Do you know that I spend more on my monthly salary bill in one month than some of these people that are claiming I am broke earn in 5 or 10 years?
“I have 55 domestic staff in my house alone. Not one of them gets below 70,000 naira per month which is higher than the national minimum wage.
“I do not owe salaries and I feed each of them three square meals every day. I do all this just to help them and to ensure they can look after and feed their families. Does that sound like a broke man to you?
“That is my little contribution to the welfare of our people because I certainly do not need so many staff. I employ them just to keep them off the unemployment line,” he said.
He asked further:
“Apart from that do you know how many people I give scholarships to and how many people’s children I feed and educate? Do you know how many other families I am responsible for in terms of day to day living?
