Former Minister of Aviation , Femi Fani -Kayode has said that he ’ s still a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.
This is despite confirmation by the Governor of Kogi State , Yahaya Bello , that he has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Fani -Kayode had on Monday met 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.
The speculation was confirmed to be true by Bello who , in a 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 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.”
In a swift reaction , Fani – Kayode admitted that he ’ s indeed holding talks across party lines . He, however, made it clear that he has not left the PDP.
“Though we have had meetings across party lines and we are in a season of political consultation, I have not left the PDP , ” he wrote on his verifiedTwitter handle on Wednesday.
