Mr Femi Fani-Kayode, ex-minister of state for defence and critic of ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), agreed praising President Muhammadu Buhari but has denied dumping opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He said that the reports that he had joined APC are false. In tweet on Friday, he said the reports are “vile mendacities and perfidious falsehood’’. He said that it was true that he commended President Muhammadu Buhari for getting Zainab Aliyu out of Saudi Arabia prison.

The commendation, he said was not tantamount to joining the president’s political party. “Reports that I said I am “proud of Buhari” and that I have “dumped PDP” and “joined APC” are false. Those that are peddling such vile mendacities and perfidious falsehood are insane. I commended Buhari for getting the young lady in Saudi Arabia out of prison but it stops there,’’ he said in his tweet. Reports that I said I am "proud of Buhari" and that I have "dumped PDP" and "joined APC" are false.

Those that are peddling such vile mendacities and  perfidious falsehood are insane. I commended B Reno Omokri, another critic of Buhari also praised the president for securing the release of Zainab Aliyu. The former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and an ardent critic of President Muhammed Buhari, in a tweet on Tuesday, said: “I celebrate the @MBuhari government for securing Zainab Aliyu’s release in record breaking time. “President Buhari is to be commended. “Now, I urge the President to apply the same sense of urgency that he showed for Zainab towards Leah Sharibu and make #FreeLeahSharibu a reality.’’ (NAN)
