Former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
He was presented to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), by the Chairman, Caretaker Committee of APC, and governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
FFK joined the ruling party months after romancing around with APC governors, including defending some of ministers and Federal Government’s policies.
“Today at the State House, Abuja: Somebody has come and joined the APC. And a large-hearted and magnanimous President received him. Because that’s the essential Buhari for you,” a presidential aide, Tolu Ogunlesi, posted on Facebook attaching pictures of FFK and his boss.
The former chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party said “the Spirit of God” led him to taking a decision to join the ruling party.
The former minister said he would be assisting to build unity in the country.
He also claimed to be instrumental to the defection of some PDP governors and hinted that more opposition governors are being wooed.
