Nigeria’s Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has refuted the reports about him dumping the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC).
The politician stated categorically via his verified Twitter handle on Monday, July 25 that any reports not emanating from him or his official social media handles should be disregarded.
“Reports that I have left @OfficialAPCNg are not true. Any announcement that does not emanate from me directly or on my verified social media pages concerning my political affiliation is fake,” he tweeted.
HausaToday recalls that Fani-Kayode defected from the nation’s main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to APC in September 2021.
The lawyer was led to meet President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Villa by the then Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the APC, Governor Mai Mala Buni and Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State.
According to the former minister, he was led by the Spirit of God in his decision and he joined the APC to help the unity of the country.
In one of his claims, Fani-Kayode said he joined a forward-thinking and accommodating party. He stressed that the APC he joined was different from the one he heavily criticized in the past.
When asked during an interview with Channels Tv months ago if he decamped to APC for financial gain, Fani-Kayode said: “I find that very insulting whether it is coming from you or my critics, I am not the first person that would decamp to the APC, have you asked others this same question?
