Vanguard reports that Ojude shared his thought as he described Thursday, September 16, as the saddest day in his political career.
It was gathered that the presidential aide posted the message on Facebook,hours after Fani-Kayode met his boss at Aso Rock and defected to the ruling party.
Ojudu posted: “This is the saddest day of my political career."
Ojudu subsequently shared a previous vow by Fani-Kayode that he would never join APC , adding “I prefer to die than join APC.”
Meanwhile, following the defection of the former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC), a Kaduna-based Islamic scholar and cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has reacted.
Daily Trust reports that the cleric accused FFK of being a traitor after defecting to the ruling party.
Gumi said this in a Facebook post on Thursday,September 16, titled, ‘Judas of Oduduwa’ , where he attached a previous post by Femi Fani-Kayode that 'he prefers to die than join APC .'
The Islamic cleric, while commenting on the post, called the former Nigerian minister 'Judas of Oduduwa.'
Gumi also said he had known that FFK’s actions were not real.
He posted:“I have for long, neglected the rantings of the Judas of Oduduwa attacking me knowing fully well that he is fake and a traitor.
“Time has now caught up with him and thanks to Allah, all his vituperations are cast in the dustbin of merciless history. It is him now, one wonders which of the seven circles of hell this duper will settle if he doesn’t repent.”
However, Daily Trust reports that back in 2019, the former chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said he would rather die than join the ruling party amid speculations that he defected.
In a statement shared on Fani-Kayode's social media page, he described the report of his defection as “false and insulting”,The Cable reported.
FFK said:“I am committed to opposing the APC and those that are in their ranks for the rest of my natural life and I will NEVER join them no matter what! They are nothing but darkness whilst l stand for the light of God and truth: there can be NO fellowship between light and darkness.”
“The suggestion that l joined the APC is false and insulting.Those that are peddling this fake news should bury their heads in shame. With what we have witnessed, l would rather die than join a filthy, rat-infested sinking ship like the Almajiri Peoples Congress (APC).
