After months of speculation, former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The former minister was on Thursday, presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by Mai Mala Buni, chairman, caretaker committee of the APC and governor of Yobe state, at the presidential villa, Abuja.
Fani-Kayode said he was led by the spirit of God in his decision to join the APC.
The former minister said he is committed to the unity of the country and that he is against anything that would cause the disintegration of Nigeria.
According to former PDP man, he was instrumental in the defection of three Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors to the APC.
He listed Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state, Ben Ayade of Cross River, and Bello Matawale of Zamfara as the governors he helped facilitate their defection to APC.
Fani-Kayode also claim he has friends across party lines and that he is presently wooing Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the governor of Enugu state, Seyi Makinde, the governor of Oyo state, and Bala Mohammed of Bauchi to join the ruling party.
It would be recalled that the former minister’s defection is coming after several months of vehemently denying dumping the the opposition party.
Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi, had in February claimed that Fani-Kayode had crossed over to the APC.
