A former Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has described some individuals joining the ruling party as lunatics.
He stated that the ruling party is surprisingly admitting people who abused the hell out of them in the past.
Naija News reports that former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, who became infamous for describing President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC in many unprintable names recently joined the ruling party.
Fani-Kayode, who had wished Buhari’s son death and described the APC as Almajiri People’s Congress, stated that all he said in the past were just political.
Though he didn’t mention Fani-Kayode by name, Nabena told SUN such defection is not good for democracy.
He said: “My worry is that if we continue the way we are going now, Nigeria is going to become a one-party country and it is not good for us and the democracy.
“Yes, no other party can defeat the APC yet there is the need for viable opposition to checkmate what the ruling party is doing. I was surprised that all the people that abused the hell of APC previously are also joining the ruling party.
“Let me tell you that APC is surviving even with all the lunatics coming into the party because it is laid on solid foundation. The merging parties and the ideologies made the party strong and despite the crises rocking the party, it has continued to stand solidly.”
According to Nabena, the difference between the APC and PDP is that the latter is like a privately owned company, resulting in the high level dictatorship in the party while APC is made up of different owners joining hands together.
