Former Minister of Aviation and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode was once quoted condemning former Osun State Deputy Governor, Senator Iyiola Omisore, for joining the All Progressive Congress in 2018.
The ex-Minister fuming that two days after the Social Democratic Party, SDP candidate in the election, Senator Iyiola Omisore pledged to be his own man; he had allegedly decided to work together with the All Progressives Congress, APC, to ensure victory for its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.
Recall in the elections , PDP candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke garnered a total of 254, 698 votes while Oyetola polled 254, 345, leaving the Independent National Electoral Commission to order a re-run in five polling units.
Fani-Kayode not happy with the turn of events for his partywrote on Twitter, “Omisore’s decision to support the APC in tomorrow’s (today) re-run is shameful. It is sad that he would seek to deny Ile-Ife the position of Deputy Governor simply for money.
He told me he would stand firm two days ago and he told our leader and father Baba Ayo Adebanjo the same thing last night. I do not know what has turned his head but we shall forge ahead and by God’s grace, Adeleke will win. There is no excuse or justification for joining or supporting those who treated our people like filth and slaves over the last 8 years and who rigged last Saturday’s election.”
Meanwhile, Fani-Kayode has reportedly joined the ruling party (APC).
He was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by the Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the APC, and governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
