Fani-Kayode Blasts New York Times Over Trump’s “Huts Comment” About Nigerians

Former Nigerian Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has accused respected news medium New York Times of lying about US President Donald Trump’s purported comment about Nigerians.

The New York Times on Saturday had reported that Trump said in a June 2017 meeting that Nigerians refuse to “return to their huts” after seeing America.

Other comments credited to the president at the meeting include: “immigrants from Haiti all have AIDS” and “Afghanistan is a haven of terrorists.”

The New York Times had quoted two anonymous sources present at the meeting but who sought anonymity.

Trump administration officials denied the report, saying that though the meeting took place, the president never used the words “AIDS” and “huts”.
In a reaction via his verified Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode described the New York Times report as a “lie” and “salacious gossip”.

He said,
