Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has declared he’s still a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He spoke despite confirmation by Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello that he has joined the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Fani-Kayode met on Monday with Bello and acting National Chairman of the APC, Governor Mai Buni, fuelling speculation he was on his way to joining the ruling party.
Bello, in a viral video, said: “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 contribution into ensuring that APC is a party to beat.
“Remember that Chief Femi Fani-Kayode was a foundation member of this great party. Due to misunderstanding, he decided to port elsewhere, now he has decided to join our party, approached me, and by the mandate given to me by the party, I must not segregate or discriminate against any individual.”
But Fani-Kayode clarified he has not left the PDP.
He tweeted on his verified handle on Wednesday: “Though we have had meetings across party lines and we are in a season of political consultation, I have not left the PDP.”
