Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has dismissed as false media reports that he has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This is against the backdrop of claims by Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State that the former minister has joined the APC.
Fani-Kayode on Monday met with the National Chairman of the APC, Governor Mai Buni of Yobe State and Governor Bello, fuelling speculation he was on his way back to the party.
Bello put paid to speculations while addressing a crowd of APC supporters as seen in a video on social media.
“Our brother and friend, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has joined our party in good faith.
“He’s joining our party to add his own positive energy and make contributions into ensuring that APC is a party to beat.”
He also pointed out Fani-Kayode is one of the foundation members of the APC.
But, in a post on his Instagram handle, Fani-Kayode said he has not left 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,” he said.
