The APC refused to give Femi Fani-Kayode any sort of recognition despite the fact that he was a minister and the reason is because the party leadership just couldn’t trust him.
One of the All Progressives Congress governors has disclosed that the party never trusted Fani-Kayode, hence the ex-minister was kept out of all the happenings in the party. The governor said APC leaders were skeptical of dealing with Fani-Kayode with open hands because of his antecedents.
In the words of the respected governor: “We know him very well. He has been attending some of our meetings. Like the day we went to invite former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to leave the Peoples Democratic Party, he was there.
“He has also attended some other meetings, but because we didn’t trust him well that he would not betray us, we were dealing with him with caution.
“He went to have a meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan without informing anyone about its outcome. So, such a character has to be cleverly avoided.”
Fani-Kayode has said he left the APC and joined the PDP that he has castigated severallly because of the APC’s alleged Islamic agenda and that the leadership of the party was not sincere.
But the APC governor, who spoke with Punch, said the man has no character and is one that everyone should see for what he really is. He said APC is focused and won’t join issues with the likes of Fani-Kayode.
