There are indications that four governors of the opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party may decamp to the ruling All Progressives Congress just as a former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, held a secret meeting with the Caretaker Chairman of the APC, Mai Mala Buni; and Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.
A very top member of the APC was quote by The PUNCH that while it was true that the party leadership has reached out to Fani-Kayode, the former minister had not yet made any commitment.
The source, however, described the meeting as fruitful and that “things are looking bright.”
He said, “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.”
When asked to reveal the identities of the four PDP governors planning to defect, the source said it would be unwise to do so at this point.
He explained that the governors were still waiting for certain conditions to be met before making their move.
