Former Aviation minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has denied claim that he has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC).
He made the denial in a short statement issued after a video by Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello that he had accepted to join APC went viral today.
However, the former minister said though he has been involved in consultations with members of the ruling party, he has not made up his mind on whether to dump 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”, the former minister stated, in a post of his Facebook page.
In his viral video, the governor of Kogi State had claimed that Fani-Kayode ‘has seen the light and has joined APC’ to a cheering audience.
The speculations that the former minister may be going back to APC followed his meeting with leaders of the party in the past few days.
Recall that he reportedly met with the APC’s Chairman, Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, Yobe State governor Mai Mala Buni and Governor Bello at a Guest House in Abuja on Sunday.
Significantly, Fani Kayode did not deny the speculations about his impending defection until the Kogi governor’s video alleging that he is now a member of APC went viral.
