Discredited Minister, Fani-Kayode, explains why he joined APC, after previously criticizing it

Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, says he joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to help Nigeria attain unity, peace, and togetherness.

The Chairman of the APC National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, presented Fani-Kayode to President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja on Thursday.

During an interview with Channels Television's Politics Today, Fani-Kayode said he joined the ruling party because he saw it as the best path ahead, regardless of what others may believe.

“The APC is a liberal party,” he explained. The APC has seen a lot of changes over the years. The party has evolved, and the President has adapted to the new situation. I would not have joined the APC if the leadership had not changed.

“I am acting under my convictions and beliefs. This is the best decision I've ever made; love me or loathe me, it won't change who I am.”

Speaking about his verbal attacks on Buhari, the former minister claimed that he did it from the outside, but that he now knew who the President was from the inside.

“From the outside, I railed against Buhari; now I know him from the inside,” he remarked. I'm not claiming he's a monster or an angel. The APC I was referring to at the time is no longer in existence. Let us focus on peace, cooperation, and unity.”
