I Am Not Going To APC With Jonathan – Omokri

Former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri has said that ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan is not defecting to the All Progressive Congress.

Responding to a question asked on Friday by Wazobia FM’s host, Yaw, Omokri said if Jonathan eventually decides to join APC, he would not go with him.

Naija News reports that the award-winning book writer assured that the former leader is not dumping the Peoples Democratic Party to join forces with the ruling party.

Omokri said his pedigree is too important to be rubbished.

Speaking about former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode who recently dumped PDP for APC, Omokri said FFK’s behaviour is not representative of his behaviour.

He said; “I am not Femi Fani-Kayode. I urge you, your radio station, and the general Nigerian public not to be emotionally agitated. Don’t be excitable. Be rational. Put things into proper perspective.

“Study my past. Am I or am I not a stable person? You and the public should be able to gauge my future conduct from my past conduct. Let me make this clear: Former President Jonathan will not join the APC.

“And even if he does, I will NOT go with him. But he won’t.

“Fani-Kayode’s behaviour is not representative of my behaviour. My late father was an Appeal Court Justice. Investigate him. He was known for being an honest judge.

“I was a Presidential spokesman for four years. Nobody has even accused me of stealing a pin. Betrayal, grovelling and instability are not in my DNA.

“So what will make me vulnerable to APC? My pedigree is too important to me to soil. I must pass it unblemished to my children as it was passed on, unblemished, to me.

“My stomach does not control my mouth. What I say, and how I behave, are dictated by conscience, not by appetite!”
