OPINION: FFK Needs To Thread With Caution In APC After Presidency Revealed His Earlier Offenses

The reality on ground is that a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

By now, Fani-Kayode aka FFK should be settling in the APC after his news making reception in Aso Rock Villa Abuja by President Muhammadu Buhari. However, there is a great need for FFK to tread with great caution in APC after the Presidency revealed his past offenses against Buhari, the Presidency, Buhari's family, APC leaders and the party itself. This was revealed by Presidential Aide, Femi Adesina, according to a report by Sahara Reporters.

Adesina disclosed that FFK poured heavy insults on almost all the people that matter in the APC beginning with Buhari, top APC leaders, Yusuf Buhari (especially when he had bike accident) and many others. Adesina stated that Buhari would have dealt decisively with FFK since he has the power and what it takes to do so, but the President chose to do otherwise. Buhari chose to be merciful by not only forgiving FFK but accepting him with open arms into the APC despite all the testimonies against him.

FFK needs to be very careful.

First, FFK is on record as a great 'offender' as Adesina pointed out. But, Buhari and the APC decided to forgive him and accept him into their fold. This is a rare privilege that must not be taken for granted. It does not come to anybody just like that. FFK needs to prove that he appreciates this rare act of forgiveness and kindness from Buhari and APC.

Again, FFK needs to be mindful and know that he may be tested by leaders and members of the APC to know if he has changed. They may test his loyalty and how much he can endure things. As a person that had the kind of past Adesina pointed out again, it is a wise idea for them to subject him to a secret test within the first few months of his stay in the ruling. If he shows that he has changed, then that will be good. If not, FFK may have issues with members and leaders of the party.

Moreover, FFK needs to watch his utterances this time around. He was free to lambast Buhari, APC leaders and the party before because he was in the opposition party then. It was part of the watchdog functions expected from an opposition figure like him But now, things are different. FFK needs to tame his tongue and mind what he says and how he reacts even after being provoked. This is because if care is not taken in this aspect, he may say or do things that may make the powers that be to withdraw the initial forgiveness and use his past ''offenses'' against him.
