Lessons To Learn As Femi Fani-Kayode Rejoined APC

This week, another tremor ran through Nigeria’s turbulent political landscape as Former Minister of Aviation, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode, has officially defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The former PDP chieftain was introduced to President Muhammadu Buhari as the newest member of the ruling party on Thursday during a visit to the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The first lesson that should be learnt from Femi Kayode's defection to APC is that, there is no permanent friend or enemy in politics. It should be recalled that Fani Kayode has previously criticized Buhari on many occasions.

Secondly, we should learn to support any government in power. The defection of Femi Kayode to APC will help strengthen the party which could in turn help the government.

Internal Party Division

Internal party divisions are one of the major reasons politicians defect in Nigeria, and this is manifest in the various factions and executives in a party. When a particular faction feels sidelined and ostracized from the political activities, they can resort to defection to seek better opportunities.

Political parties that lack the capacity to achieve internal cohesion are the worst hit by defections, and this is always massive because of the aggrieved factions who leave the party.
