Nigerians have slammed Femi Fani-Kayode for joining the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) despite his criticism of the party in the past.
Mai Mala Buni, Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Caretaker Committee confirmed Fani-Kayode’s defection as he presented him to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday.
Speaking after the meeting, Fani-Kayode said God ordained his defection as he was led by the spirit.
This has led to criticisms from Nigerians on social media who called him a ‘Hungry’ politician and a bad role model who should be ashamed for defecting to a party he once criticized.
Here are some reactions below:
@Deji Adeyanju “Fani-Kayode is a very bad role model for upcoming Nigerian politicians, too undisciplined and unprincipled. He is not only unstable but lacks character. How can a man bring so much disgrace and disrespect to himself because of what he will eat? This is someone who wished Buhari dead.”
@Ayemojubatr “Hunger finally humbled Femi Fani-Kayode..”
@Vajime “FFK is not to be trusted.”
@Abidemyola “ It is indeed shameful that Fani Kayode will be accepted into the folds of APC. I think all well-meaning progressives should condemn this move. We do not need a Fani-Kayode to win future elections, he is more of a liability.
@DarklightHQ “ I’ve always known that that man is a traitor, stooge, saboteur. When Obasanjo said “Fani-Kayode is my boy, give him food and he will sing” people no understand.”
@Konis_v “Obasanjo don talk am since say Femi Fani-Kayode Na ATENu, give him food and he will misbehave on your behalf.”
@AdeoluBankole “Despite all your grammar and criticisms. Done deal, 2022/23 New season transfer.”
@TommyB “ Femi Fani-Kayode had returned to the APC, if you’re one of those that choose to die for Nigerian politicians, know that your death will only be in vain.”
@CyObi “ Before now we know you, I never for one day took any of his talk serious, because I know him to be someone they are bankrolling always, he lacks integrity so much. You think Buhari trusts you? No way!
@Demzie “Fani-Kayode has discovered his grazing route out of sapa and joined APC.”
@saveur “ Here we go, FFK to APC done deal. They’ve been rumours for months and today he’s officially an APC member. Good luck to more bridge building projects.”
@VillageBoy “We’ve already known right from the time that Fani Kayode is anywhere belle face. Na Jonathan announcement remain.”
@Chimenem1 “I am not surprised to hear this, he is broke and need to be carried along.”
@Afeezgunners “This shows that there is no permanent enemy when it comes to politics. The gullible supporters should take a clue from this.”
@Slimmizie “This guy is shameless and frustrated, see him wit is Agbada, he will come here and be saying nonsense again.”
