The ruling All Progressives Congress has been criticized for giving a former Peoples Democratic Party chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode a grand reception yesterday for joining the party.
Joe Igbokwe, who is an aide to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, said he is yet to be invited to meet with Buhari despite all his push for the ruling party, but the party could afford to give FFK a presidential audience.
He slammed the ruling party for giving a political “charlatan and prostitute” like Fani-Kayode a red carpet welcome.
“Despite all my push for APC, Abuja has not given me a phone talk less of inviting me for coffee with the C-in-C. But here is a political charlatan and prostitute being given a red carpet in the seat of power, Abuja,” Joe Igbokwe wrote.
Defending his defection to APC in an interview with Channels TV, Fani-Kayode said his battles against President Buhari in 2015 were only political.
He 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 APC, stating that he would not have joined the ruling party if not for Buni.
