3 Tough Conditions APC Governors DG Gave Femi Fani-Kayode Before He Can Be Integrated Fully Into APC

Former Minister of Aviation during the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Femi Fani Kayode a few days ago defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC months after it was rumoured that he wanted to do so.

He was seen at the Presidential Villa with President Buhari alongside Mai Mala Buni and Bello Matawalle.

The former Minister after his defection has been dining with some federal ministers like Isa Pantami who he once described as a sympathizer of terrorists.

However, the truth is that some APC members are not happy that FFK defected to the APC after condemning the party for so long.

According to Sun Newspaper, the APC Governors forum DG, Salihu Moh Lukman has given the former minister 3 tough conditions which he must meet before he can be fully integrated into the ruling APC. 

We will be looking at them in this article. 

1) FFK must register at his ward in Osun State 

Recall that FFK told Seun Okin of Channels TV that he would be registering as a member of the party in FCT and not in his ward in Osun state because he has lived in Abuja for over 20 years.

However, the APC Governors' Forum DG has disagreed with him insisting that he must return to his root to register before he can be recognised as a member of the party. 

2) Fani Kayode must unite with APC chieftains in his home state, Osun 

It appears that APC Governors DG knows that FFK in the past has criticised a lot of South-West politicians who he accused of betraying the South-West by supporting Buhari in the 2015 and 2019 presidential elections.

The likes of Chief Bisi Akande, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, Governor Gboyega Oyetola and other party leaders in his home state, Osun are top politicians who he doesn't agree with.

Don't forget that these politicians I mentioned are strong political allies of Bola Ahmed Tinubu who FFK has criticised many times. 

3) He must conduct himself and express his opinion with the constitution of the party 

Those who know FFK will agree that he is outspoken and doesn't care what someone thinks about him.

The APC is afraid that he is still the same FFK who criticizes the government at will. That is why they want him to assure the party that he will be guided by the constitution of the APC in all his actions within the APC. 

These conditions to me are difficult and I wonder if FFK can meet them especially that of uniting with APC chieftains in Osun State.
