A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has been accused of being a traitor and betrayer of the Yoruba people.
The O’odua Peoples Congress (OPC) made the accusation on Friday while reacting to the defection of Fani-Kayode from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Naija News reports that there have been several reactions from stakeholders and observers particularly as Fani-Kayode had in the past boasted that over his dead body would he defect to the APC.
In a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Yinka Oguntimehin, the OPC berated the former minister for betraying Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho and Yoruba Nation agitators.
According to the group, Fani-Kayode has no measure of integrity and loyalty, describing the new APC member as a “political jobber with no ideology”,
The group asked Yoruba people not to be disappointed and be ready to see many betrayers of the Yoruba race in the coming days.
The OPC said the Fani-Kayode’s defection was “never a surprise because he had been romancing with some APC chieftains all over the country”.
It read, “You can’t trust a politician, Femi Fani-Kayode is just one out of the lot. He has no principle, and he is an agent of the government. So it is never a new thing to see him defecting from PDP to APC. Fani-Kayode has no measure of integrity and he is a political jobber with no ideology.
“Of what value is his defection to the APC. But the truth is Yoruba should be ready for more of Femi Fani Kayodes in our midst.
“A few months ago, our leader, the Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Abiodun Ige Adams, said in one of the group’s events that in the coming days before the 2023 elections, many people would show the stuff they were made of.
“He said many of our politicians are like a chameleon, they change so often, and that many of those that hitherto claimed to be true Yoruba sons and daughters would shift and change their positions because of cheap political crumbs, and position.
“And this prediction is now playing out with the defection of the former minister, many trusted allies of our race would soon join the train as he had rightly said.”
