Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation and opposition leader in Nigeria, has slammed reports that he has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
In an e-mailed statement to The Trent on Sunday, December 15, 2019, Chief Fani-Kayode, who is a chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP said he would rather die than join the APC which he tagged the Almajiri People’s Congress. Almajiri is a Hausa word which describes child beggars.
“The suggestion that I have joined the APC is not only false but it is also deeply insulting. Those that are peddling this fake news should bury their heads in shame,” he said in the statement.
“With what we have witnessed over the last 5 years I would rather die than join a filthy, rat-infested sinking ship like the Almajiri Peoples Congress (APC).
“Those that claim that I have joined them and that seek to link my good name to such a bloodthirsty, blood-lusting, accursed political association of Boko Haramists, Fulani herdsmen, genocidal maniacs, ethnic cleansers, mass murderers, ethnic supremacists, religious bigots, cow-lovers and corrupt treasury looters that have brought nothing but death, division, misery, poverty, incompetence, shame and destruction to our nation and our people will burn in hell forever!
“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 I stand for the light of God and truth: there can be NO fellowship between light and darkness,” the statement ended.
