Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has denied claim that he has left the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
The denial came following a video by Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello that he had accepted to join APC went viral on Wednesday.
In the video, Governor Yahaya Bello had claimed that Fani-Kayode ‘has seen the light and has joined APC’.
He said “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 APC is a party to beat,” he said while gyrating with a sense of achievement.
Bello said Fani-Kayode was a foundation member of the APC and that he left due to misunderstanding and that he has decided to come back now for the better.
“Now he has decided to join our party, he approached me and by the mandate given to me by the party, I must not segregate, I must not discriminate against any individual, even if he has his different opinion about the party and government before, and he has seen the light, the reality and the need to join the All Progressives Congress.
The speculations that the former minister may be going back to APC followed his meeting with some statesmen from the party few days back.
But responding to the speculations and video in a short statement on his social media pages , Fani-Kayode wrote;
” Though we have had meetings across party lines and we are in a season of political consultation I have not left the PDP.”
