Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode has finally spoken on his alleged move to dump the All Progressive Congress, APC, and join the ruling Peoples's Democratic Party, PDP.
According to reports, Fani Kayode, one of the fiercest critics of President Goodluck Jonathan, visited the Presidential Villa on Tuesday where he held discussions with the President.
Speaking after the meeting at Aso Rock, Fani-Kayode told newsmen at the state House that every Nigerian who feel strongly about an issue should be able to discuss with the president about it.
* Fani-Kayode says he would tell Nigerians if he is leaving APC
“This is a presidential villa, the president is a president of Nigeria every single person in this country that is a Nigerian is entitled to come here from time to time, when the doors are open to come and pay their respect to the wonderful people that are here. As a Nigerian, I have done that today and I’m delighted to be here.
“I have always believed that every Nigerian regardless of the side of the political divide they belong, and as a Nigerian myself I have believed that we disagree on an issue from time to time. The most important thing is for us to be able to resolve these issues come together to move this country forward. And I think every right thinking responsible person should be able to do that. They should also be able to come to the villa from time to time to see how they can help to move the country forward."
Speaking on his alleged move to dump APC and join PDP, Fani-Kayode said: “The step that I will take will be made known to Nigerians at the right time. The most important thing is that I cannot and I will not be associated with a situation whereby any group of people is promoting a religion above another. I think all of us have gone past the stage of religious politics in this country. We must treat the Muslim community with utmost respect and we must treat the Christian community in the same way and even the non-religious."
