Fani-Kayode dumps PDP, joins APC

Former Aviation Minister and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Femi Fani-Kayode, has formally defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress.

Fani-Kayode, who used to be a fierce critic of President Muhammadu Buhari, until recently, was presented to Buhari by the Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the APC, and governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

On the reason he dumped the PDP for the APC, Fani-Kayode claimed the Spirit of God led him in the decision, adding that he joined the APC to help for the unity of the country.

He went further to say that he was against anything that would cause the disintegration of Nigeria.

He hinted that he played a major role in Governors Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, Ben Ayade, Cross River State, and Bello Matawale of Zamfara State, dumping the PDP for the APC.

He also said he was wooing Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi as well as Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde and Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed to join the ruling party.
