Former Minister of Aviation, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode, has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
The former minister, long suspected of hobnobbing with APC stalwarts, finally ended the hide and seek and openly defected to the party from the PDP.
He was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari, by the Chairman, Caretaker Committee of APC, and governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
FFK joined the ruling party months after romancing around with APC governors, including defending some ministers and Federal Government’s policies.
“Today at the State House, Abuja: Somebody has come and joined the APC. And a large-hearted and magnanimous President received him. Because that’s the essential Buhari for you,” a presidential aide, Tolu Ogunlesi, posted on Facebook attaching pictures of FFK and his boss.
The former chieftain of the People Democratic Party (PDP) said “the Spirit of God” led him in taking a decision to join the ruling party.
The former minister said he would be assisting to build unity in the country.
He also claimed to be instrumental to the defection of some PDP governors and hinted that more opposition governors are being wooed.
Before joining APC, Fani-Kayode is one of the prominent opposition voices in the country.
He was a former spokesman for PDP Presidential Campaign Council.
