Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has finally defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The former PDP chieftain was introduced to President Muhammadu Buhari as the newest member of the ruling party on Thursday during a visit to the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
He was led to the meeting with the President by the APC National Caretaker Committee Chairman and Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, as well as Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State.
After meeting with President Buhari, the new APC member told State House correspondents that he was responsibke for the defection of three PDP governors who joined the ruling party – Governor Matawalle, as well as Governor David Umahi (Ebonyi) and Governor Ben Ayade (Cross River).
He also claimed that God ordained his defection, as he was led by the spirit.
There had been speculations recently about the looming defection of Mr. Kayode to the APC.
He had however denied the “rumours”.
