Ø Ganduje’s aides frown
A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode may be on his way back to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) six years after he left for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Sources close to him informed newsmen he met with chairman, Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) Gov. Mai Mala Buni and Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello at a Guest House in Abuja.
It was learnt that the closed- door meeting, which lasted for about an hour may not be unconnected with fine tuning plans for the return of the former Minister to APC. Fani-Kayode had earlier met with Gov. Bello in his Wuse Zone-6 residence in Abuja, before he led the former Minister to the party chairman’s Guest House.
Meanwhile, reactions continued to trail the Chief’s purported planned defection. A presidential media aide, Bashir Ahmad seems not to be comfortable with the news. He wrote on Twitter: “If he decides to join the governing party, I don’t think he will be welcomed by the majority of the party members, who he made it a duty to attack and insult for several years.”
Similarly, the Special Adviser on Media to the Kano State governor, Salihu Tanko Yakasai, also expressed his disgust at the trending news. He wrote: “I honestly don’t think I understand Nigeria’s political space anymore.
The reports became a trending topic after photos of the former minister and Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello surfaced on social media.
