An aide to Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Joe Igbokwe, criticized the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for granting former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode access to the President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Fani-Kayode, on Thursday officially defected from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC, and was introduced to Buhari by the Chairman of the APC Interim Committee and Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Fani-Kayode, who recently dated CPA leaders and bigwigs, said he was guided by God in his decision.
In a post on his Facebook page, Igbokwe, a former APC spokesperson in Lagos, questioned the party for paying attention to a “political charlatan and prostitute”.
“Despite all my pressure for the APC, Abuja did not give me a phone conversation let alone invite me for coffee with the C-in-C. But here is a political charlatan and a prostitute who receive a red carpet at the seat of power, Abuja, âwrote Joe Igbokwe.
Igbokwe also called on a former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, to admit that Buhari is not an impostor.
He urged the former governor to also come to the Presidential Villa to see Buhari as Fani-Kayode did.
Fayose had described Buhari as an impostor of the Republic of Niger.
Igbokwe said: “Now that FFK who said the person at Aso Rock was not PMB went to the same seat of power to confirm that PMB is real, may Fayose also go to the Villa to speak the truth in power so to rest the Case. “
The former minister, known for his inconsistent stance on public issues, said he had joined the CPA to help unify the country.
According to him, he was against anything that would bring about the disintegration of Nigeria.
He also claimed that he contributed to the defection of three governors from the PDP to the APC.
He identified the governors as Dave Umahi from Ebonyi State, Ben Ayade from Cross River State and Bello Matawalle from Zamfara State.
He added that he had friends from all parties and courted Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde and State Governor. de Bauchi, Bala Mohammed, to join the ruling party as well.
However, two years ago, following rumors that the former minister had joined the CPA, he completely ruled out the possibility of defection from the ruling party.
Speaking to Twitter, he described the ruling party as “a filthy, rat-infested sinking ship.”
He also called the party “darkness” and “Almajiri People’s Congress (APC)”.
