The Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West has congratulated the All Progressives Congress, APC, over the defection of former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode.
Naija News recalls that Fani-Kayode on Thursday officially left the PDP to the APC, a move that did not come as a surprise to Nigerians following his meetings with chieftains of the ruling party.
Speaking after his defection, the former Minister had stated that he was led by the Spirit of God to join the APC, adding that his previous attack on President Muhammadu Buhari was only political.
Reacting in a statement titled, ‘‘FFK: South-West PDP hails APC for inheriting liability,” the zone spokesperson, Sanya Atofarati described Fani-Kayode as a beggar and political liability.
He stated that nothing had changed about Buhari as the socio-political and economic situations in the country were getting worse by the day under his watch.
Atofarati, said, “This was a man who openly accused President Buhari of corruption allegation as Minister of Petroleum in 1977 and cursed himself to death in 2019 if he ever attempted to join the Buhari-led APC.
“Now, the question for Fani-Kayode is: what has changed? Have the unemployed Nigerians been employed under Buhari? Has Buhari now been able to curb the killing spree of Nigerian soldiers and kidnappings of innocent citizens by bandits and herders across the country?
“For some of us and especially the South-West PDP, we knew the featherweight politician would defect to the APC because we had always been aware of his insincerity and unholy alliance. We in South-West PDP are the most grateful because the snitch within has finally gone home to roast (sic). We predicted earlier that those sabotaging the progress of this country will be exposed; now, Nigerians have seen it and we are vindicated
“FFK should not be taken seriously. Even when he was acting as a self-acclaimed PDP spokesman, many of us knew he wasn’t sincere. He was then PDP in the day and APC in the night. FFK lacks the integrity required to portray a liberator’s stature. He is a political beggar whose only source of income is in corporate begging.
“Over the years, FFK has remained a worthless entity within the party and especially in South-West. History has it that FFK has never won any election even in his polling unit for PDP other than scavenging for political relevance.”
