Following the defection of Femi Fani Kayode, a former Aviation Minister from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC, an APC chieftain in Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe, has stated that it was unfortunate that President Muhammadu Buhari could give Fani-Kayode a heroic welcome into the party.
According to reports, Igbokwe disclosed this in a Facebook post, and stated that those who had stood with Buhari for years were never invited or given recharge cards.
The Chieftain stated that, “Despite all my push for the APC, Abuja has not given me a phone call talk-less of inviting me for a coffee with c in c but here is a political charlatan and prostitute being given a red carpet in the seat of power, Abuja.”
He made it known that, “APC reward enemies. They pamper enemies. This life no balance at all (sic). Please I am ok where I am today but I know countless number of APC diehards who are 100 percent better than FFK. Nobody has remembered them. Not even a recharge card, not even a bottle of coke, not even thank you.”
Meanwhile, a Political Adviser to the President, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, has also described Fani-Kayode’s defection as the saddest day of his political career.
