Femi Fani-Kayode, the former minister of aviation, has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He 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 Fani-Kayode, 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 said 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.

The former minister’s defection comes several months after he vehemently denied dumping the PDP.Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi, had in February claimed that Fani-Kayode had crossed over to the APC.But Fani-Kayode debunked Bello’s claim, insisting that he was still a member of PDP.
