Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, may be on his way back to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) six years after he left for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Fani-Kayode, a strong critic of the ruling party, left APC for PDP on June 2, 2014.
Sources close to him hinted he met with the Chairman, Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) Gov. Mai Mala Buni and Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello at the Guest House in Abuja on Monday.
The closed-door meeting, which lasted for about an hour, was brokered by Bello, who is also chairman of the party’s Mobilisation and Sensitisation Committee for ongoing membership registration and revalidation exercise.
Source at the meeting said the three leaders may have concluded plans for the return of the former Minister to APC.
Fani-Kayode on Sunday night met with Bello in his Wuse Zone 6 residence in Abuja before he led the former Minister to the party chairman’s Guest House.
Confirming his meeting with Kogi Governor, Fani-Kayode on his Twitter page simply wrote: “It was an honor to have spent quality time with my friend & brother Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi state last night. We had a frank, candid, fruitful & productive discussion about the way forward for our country. This is a clear case of politics without bitterness & of building bridges.”
He was however silent on his subsequent meeting with Buni.
Announcing his resignation from APC, the former Minister said, “I wish to inform the general public that as at today, 2nd June 2014, I have left the APC and gone back to the PDP. I wish the APC well in all their endeavours, but as at today, we have parted ways forever and my spirit has left them.”
