Kogi State Governor, Mr Yahaya Bello has declared that former Minister of Aviation and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Bello disclosed this while speaking to journalists after revalidating his APC membership in the Okene area of the State.
Recently, photos of Fani-Kayode with the National Caretaker Chairman of the APC, Mai Mala Buni, and Bello went viral on Social Media.
This had triggered reactions, with many asking if the former minister had cross-carpeted to the ruling party.
But Fani-Kayode had said he had a meeting with APC leaders over the need to the country forward.
The Governor said as a foundation member of the APC, the former Minister will contribute to the growth of the party.
“Our brother and friend, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has joined our party in good faith. He is joining our party to come and 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,” he said.
Fani-Kayode, who is very active on social media, is yet to react to Bello’s latest comment.
