Fani-Kayode’s reported defection untrue – Fayose
Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose says former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has not left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He described the ex-minister as a dogged fighter that would not abandon the party, noting that those doing so were motivated by greed.
Fayose spoke weekend on a Channels Television programme.
Recall that Fani-Kayode set tongues waggingabout a potential defection recently when he met top All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains – Mai Mala Buni and Yahaya Bello.
However, he denied that he was joining the ruling party.
Weighing in on the controversy, Fayose said,
“Anybody who leaves the PDP is taken away by his own covetousness. For me, I will never go to the APC. Some people can choose to be dishonourable, but I can never go there at my age, what am I looking for? “I would rather go and be the husband to my wife that join APC,” the ex-governor said.
Calling on Fani-Kayode to make his position even clearer, Fayose stated, “Many times it is good to sell your market to those who want to buy. If FFK wants to go and he hasn’t gone by now, then you know something is wrong.
“I am 100 per cent sure FFK is going nowhere. I have spoken to FFK and I am sure he is not going. If he goes to APC, he would be dead politically as a frontline Nigerian.
“Although he is not a day-to-day politician, he is dogged and he is a fighter. I have asked him and he said it is far from it,”
