National Federation Party Candidate Faizal Siddiq Koya has demanded a public apology from the FijiFirst General Secretary Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum for the comments he made regarding Koya.
Koya said that Sayed-Khaiyum during a campaign meeting in Sabeto, Nadi and also during an interview has made some comments that are not true.
Koya says Sayed-Khaiyum being the chief legal officer of the nation, without verifying, consulting and thoroughly investigating these allegations has defamed him in public.
He says Sayed-Khaiyum has his phone number and office details and he should have called him directly and asked him about the allegations.
He adds that time and again, it is Sayed-Khaiyum who states that others are bringing matters of race and religion in this campaign and yet he continuously utters such words without substance.
Koya also raised his concerns on an article written by a local media today that states that a man has heard Koya say that Mr Khaiyum has about 8 - 9 posts and he has placed his muslim people on these posts.
The NFP Candidate says that he is now compelled to report this matter to the Police and FICAC together with the Supervisor of Elections.
Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum is yet to respond.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
