Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State alleges that Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
A video in which Bello made the revelation went viral on the internet on Wednesday.
According to the governor, FFK’s defection is one of his achievements as the head of the youth mobilisation committee for the APC membership registration and revalidation.
“Our brother and friend, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has joined our party in good faith. He is joining our party to come and add his own positive energy and make contributions to ensuring that APC is a party to beat.
“Remember, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode is a foundation member of the All Progressives Congress… Now he has decided to join our party, approached me and by the mandate giving to me by our party, I must not segregate,” the governor said.
FFK had however vehemently denied the report of his defection. He said; “Though we have had meetings across party lines and we are in a season of political consultation, I have not left the PDP.”
