Femi Fani-Kayode, former minister of aviation, says he was led by the spirit of God to defect to the ruling APC
The FFK was presented to President Buhari today at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, by the chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee, and governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni.
After meeting with President Buhari, FFK said that he was guided by the Spirit of God in his decision to join the APC, adding that he was opposed to anything that would lead to Nigeria’s disintegration.
According to him, he was instrumental in the defection of three Peoples Democratic Party governors to the APC. Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, Ben Ayade of Cross River State, and Bello Matawale of Zamfara State were the governors he mentioned.
It was added that he has friends across party lines and is wooing governors of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Oyo State, Seyi Makinde and Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed to join the ruling party.
FKK has hitherto been an outspoken critic of the APC and had vowed in the past that he would rather die than join the APC or bow to President Buhari.
