After dumping the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress, (APC) former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has hinted at the possibility of the PDP governors of Bauchi, Enugu, and the Oyo States defecting to join him in the APC.
The former PDP Presidential Campaign spokesman made the revelation during an interaction with newsmen after he was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, by the Chairman, Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the APC, Governor Mai Mala Buni.
While responding to a question as to whether he had friends from the PDP who will wish to join him in the APC, Fani-Kayode said, “There are many people. If you ask my friend and brother, Governor Matawalle here, there are many people within the PDP, who do want to come over to the APC. I can tell you that. I was there and very instrumental when Governor Umahi joined the APC.
“I was there and very instrumental when Governor Ayade did the same thing. I was there and very instrumental when my friend and brother governor of Zamfara, Governor Matawalle did the same thing.
“Now, if you don’t mind me mentioning names, somebody like the governor of Enugu State, the governor of Oyo State, and of course, my good friend, the governor of Bauchi State, great friends of mine, and I sincerely hope that they too may end up coming in this direction.
“But whether they do or not, the most important thing is that we work together as a people, as a country, and move our country together and fight and kill the terrorists and put to shame the foreign elements and I emphasize that word, foreign elements, that want us to end up fighting one another in this country and turning our country into a massive refugee camp.
“I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings, but I’ve made a choice, I believe I’ve been led by the Spirit of God and I will fight for what I believe is right within this party as I would anyway. I will never give up on my core values and principles.”
