The outspoken former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has said that he’s still a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
This followed the news making the rounds that the former Aviation Minister has defected to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
Recall that the governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, had in an interactive session with Journalists, said that Fani-Kayode had joined the APC in good faith.
Bello in the viral video said, “Our brother and friend, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has joined our party in good faith. He’s joining our party to add his own positive energy and make a contribution into ensuring that APC is a party to beat.”
“Remember that Chief Femi Fani-Kayode was a foundation member of this great party. Due to misunderstanding, he decided to port elsewhere, now he has decided to join our party, approached me, and by the mandate given to me by the party, I must not segregate or discriminate against any individual.”
Distancing himself from the ‘defection news’, Fani-Kayode wrote on his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday: “Though we have had meetings across party lines and we are in a season of political consultation, I have not left the PDP.”
Fani-Kayode had last three days ago visited and had a meeting with Bello and the National Chairman of the APC, Governor Mai Buni of Yobe State leading to speculation that he had defected to the ruling party.
