Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has stated that his battles against President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 was only political.
Recall that Fani-Kayode on Thursday officially dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, after meeting Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
Speaking in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Fani-Kayode noted that he never stated that he is an angel or he is a devil, but Nigeria is fighting a war that needs everyone to be united.
The former minister stated that today’s main issues is not about Buhari or about him but about helping poor Nigerians.
“I am not the first to defect from a political. Do all other defectors take back what they say?
“Now is a time to work with Buhari to move the nation forward,” he said.
Fani-Kayode commended Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State for uniting the All Progressives Congress (APC), stating that he would not have joined the ruling party if not for Buni.
He said that people should be treated fairly, adding that Nigerians shouldn’t fight each other on religion and ethnic grounds.
The minister however warned that he won’t attack the PDP until they try to attack him.
He also dismissed reports that he left the PDP for financial gains, stressing that he is a very rich man and would have left the PDP a long time ago if he was looking for money.
