Femi Fani-Kayode Dumps APC for PDPFeatured, Latest News, News Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014
APC stalwart and former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has defected to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from All Progressives Congress (APC), noting that majority of APC members have have sympathies for Boko Haram who have killed over 10,000 innocent Nigerians.
He accused APC leadership of intolerance, adding major players are working towards presenting Muslim/Muslim ticket for 2015 Presidential election.
The statement reads: “I have stated these facts and set the record straight – due to the fact that Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the spokesman of the APC, had the effrontery to say in an interview with a magazine earlier today, that I was never a member of the APC and that I never joined them formally. The truth is that Mohammed is not only a liar but he is also a coward.
“I cannot remain in a party where a handful of people that have sympathies for Boko Haram and that have a clear Islamic agenda are playing a leading role.
“This is made all the more untenable when some of those people are working hard silently and behind the scenes to impose a Muslim/Muslim ticket on the party for the Presidential elections next year.
“I cannot be in a party where a few of its leaders are more interested in playing politics with the whole Chibok issue and hurling bricks at our military for not doing a better job. I cannot be in a party in which the role of one of its governors is not clear on the Chibok issue.”
