The Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello has affirmed that Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Although he did not debunk reports that he had defected, Bello while addressing members of the party on Wednesday said Fani-Kayode joined the party in good faith to add his positive energy.
According to him, Fani-Kayode who was a founding member of the party left due to misunderstanding and has now seen the light.
He said, ”I have the mandate to sanitize, mobilize and educate and woo Nigerians into the party, irrespective of their background.
”Our Brother Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has joined our party in good faith. He is joining our party to add his own positive energy and make a contribution to ensure that APC is a party to beat.
”Remember that Fani-Kayode was a foundation member of this great party but due to misunderstanding, he decided to port elsewhere. 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 or discriminate against any individual even if he has a different opinion about the governing party before and he has seen the light, the reality and the need to join the All Progressives Party.
It is just nice, important and very sweet to accommodate and welcome Fani-Kayode to join the party. Remember that this party does not belong to one individual, it belongs to all Nigerians.
”You are free to join if you feel otherwise and you cannot understand what is happening before and now you understand and want to join we will welcome you with our arms wide open. So Chief Femi Fani Kayode you are welcome to our party, come and make your own contribution.”
Any moment from now, the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode will officially dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for the ruling Party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, despite his denials.
AUTHENTICNG learnt from a source which revealed the real reason behind Fani-Kayode’s defection to the ruling party, APC.
According to our source, Fani-Kayode has started making plans to contest in 2023 Presidential Election after he was prophesied that he will become the President of Nigeria.
AUTHENTICNG recalls that the chairman of the Lagos state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Apostle Alex Bamgbola, had told Fani-Kayode that he will become the president of Nigeria if he remains humble.
Apostle Bamgbola made the pronouncement in Lagos on Sunday, August, 30, 2020 at the occasion of Bishop Isaac Idahosa’s celebration of 31 years in ministry.
Fani-Kayode, who has been in the news recently swiftly went on his knees to claim the pronouncement.
Our source said : “the plan is for him to dump PDP for APC before he will start making consultations”.
“After that prophecy, he started being humble and even apologised to the journalist he insulted recently, just watch out for him”, he said.
Early this week, Yahaya Bello and other top APC Stakeholders had met with him to perfect the plans for his official defection to APC.
