Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Aviation Minister, has disclosed how President Muhammadu Buhari reacted to his decision to join the All Progressives Congress, APC.
According to Fani-Kayode, President Buhari was delighted with his decision to join the ruling party.
He said the President expressed his delight during a meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, yesterday.
Fani-Kayode, in a series of tweets of Friday wrote: “It was an honor and a privilage to visit President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock, yesterday in the company of my dear friends and brothers, Governor Mala Mai-Buni and Governor Bello Matawalle.
“Mr. President received us very warmly and we had an excellent meeting. I intimated him of my decision to join the APC and he was delighted with the news.
“Now we move forward together to make our country a better place and to bring peace, love and stability to our shores. God bless Nigeria.”
The former PDP chieftain was a staunch critic of Buhari and the ruling APC, which makes his defection a surprise to many.
It remains to be seen what role, if any, he’ll be given in his new party.
