Bashir Ahmad, media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari has mocked the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, over his alleged return to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Naija News reports that Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State had confirmed the return of Fani-Kayode to the party after both men met with the National Chairman of the party, Governor Mai Buni of Yobe State, on Monday.
Bello said, “Our brother and friend, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has joined our party in good faith. He’s joining our party to add his own positive energy and make contribution into ensuring that APC is a party to beat.”
“Remember that Chief Femi Fani-Kayode was a foundation member of this great party. Due to misunderstanding, he decided to port elsewhere, now he has decided to join our party, approached me, and by the mandate given to me by the party, I must not segregate or discriminate against any individual.”
But in a tweet on Wednesday, Ahmad asked the former minister not to return to the party, saying that the PDP chieftain had described the APC as the “Almajiri Peoples Congress.”
The presidential aide recalled that Fani-Kayode had described the party as “a filthy, rat-infested sinking ship” after it was rumoured that he has secretly joined the party in 2019.
He had said, “The suggestion that I joined the APC is false and insulting. Those that are peddling this fake news should bury their heads in shame. With what we have witnessed I would rather die than join a filthy, rat-infested sinking ship like the Almajiri Peoples Congress (APC).
“Those that claim that I have joined them and seek to link my good name to such a bloodthirsty, blood-lusting, accursed political association of Boko Haramists, Fulani herdsmen, genocidal maniacs, ethnic cleansers, mass murderers, ethnic supremacists, religious bigots, cow-lovers and corrupt treasury looters that have brought nothing but death, division, misery, poverty, incompetence, shame and destruction to our nation and our people will burn in hell forever!
He added, “I am committed to opposing the APC and those that are in their ranks for the rest of my natural life and I will never join them no matter what! They are nothing but darkness whilst I stand for the light of God and truth. There can be no fellowship between light and darkness.”
