The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Political Matters, Sen. Babafemi Ojudu, has said the defection of former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) makes him sad.
Reacting to Fani-Kayode’s defection, Ojodu wrote on his Facebook page: “This is the saddest day of my political career.”
He also shared the popular post attributed to Fani-Kayode where he vowed that he would rather die than to join the APC. The former minister made the statement in 2019.
But on Thursday, he was received by President Muhammadu Buhari as he formally defected to the ruling party, having hobnobbed with leaders and governors of the party in the last few months.
Though Fani-Kayode did not deny the statement attributed to him vowing never to join the APC, he said the present APC is different from that of the past.
