Governor Wike Speaks On Fani-Kayode’s Defection To APC
He said, “I don’t know why people are shocked by Fani Kayode’s defection. People make the mistake of taking vocal everybody serious.
“Some people talk just for people to find them something to eat, some people talk because of the problems they have, so that they can be saved — if they will be saved.
“Me and Femi Fani-Kayode are not friends. I don’t like something that is too artificial. Stomach politics is not good. Nothing beats integrity.”
Wike added that Fani-Kayode would not be missed in the PDP as he cannot guarantee electoral victory even in Osun his state of origin.
