A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has fueled rumours of his impending return to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), six years after he left for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Fani-Kayode Moves To Dump PDP For APC, Meets Governor Buni And Yahaya Bello 3

Fani-Kayode held a secret meeting with the APC Chairman, Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Governor Mai Mala Buni, and Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello, at the Guest House in Abuja on Sunday.

It was learnt that the closed-door meeting, which lasted for about an hour, was brokered by Bello, who is also chairman of the APC’s Mobilisation and Sensitisation Committee for ongoing membership registration and revalidation exercise.

Sources at the meeting said the three leaders may have concluded plans for the return of the former Minister to APC.

“Fani-Kayode met with Yahaya Bello and Buni on Sunday for two hours. It is all about politics of 2023 and the recent registration drive of the APC.

“Fani-Kayode has not made any commitment yet but discussions are still ongoing,” a source said.

Fani-Kayode later confirmed his meeting with Kogi Governor bia his Twitter page, but he was silent on his subsequent meeting with Buni.

He 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.”

Fani-Kayode left the APC for the PDP on June 2, 2014, and has been a consistent critic of the President Muhammadu Buhari-APC led government.

KanyiDaily recalls that last year, Fani-Kayode said he would rather die than return to APC which he described as Almajiri Peoples Congress.
