Why I Returned To APC Years After Insulting Buhari, Others – Femi Fani-Kayode

Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has defended his decision to return to the All Progressives Congress years after hurling insults on the party and Nigeria’s president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

He spoke on Channels Television programme, ‘Politics Today’, hours after his return to APC yesterday.

Asked about his verbal attacks on Buhari since 2015, Fani-Kayode said he was ignorant of the personality of Buhari.

He said, “I spoke against Buhari from the outside, now I know him from the inside. I am not saying he is an angel or a demon. The APC I was taking about that time is not same today. Let’s focus on unity, peace and togetherness.

“There is a time to condemn and criticise people. There is also a time to come together, work together to achieve unity.”

Though Fani-Kayode criticised Musiliu Obanikoro and others who defected earlier, his postiion has now changed.

Responding to a question on his comment that he would rather die than join APC, the lawyer said, “Joining APC now is the away forward, despite what people may think about it.

“APC is a liberal party. A lot has happened in APC over the years. The party has changed and President has accommodated the change. Had the APC leadership not changed I wouldn’t have joined them.

“I am doing the right thing based on conviction and understanding. This is the right decision for me, love me or hate me, it will not take anything away from me.”

Before joining APC, Fani-Kayode is one of the outspoken oppositions in the country and he was a spokesperson for his former party, Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential campaign.
