Fani-Kayode,Governors Buni and Bello.
Indications emerged on Monday that former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode could be softening the grounds preparatory for his return to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC),a Party he dumped six years ago for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Chief Fani-Kayode met with the Chairman, Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the APC, Governor Mai Mala Buni and his Kogi State counterpart, Governor Yahaya Bello at a Guest House in Abuja.
The closed-door meeting, which lasted for nearly an hour, according to sources,may not be unconnected with resolving some grey areas for the anticipated return of Chief Fani-Kayode to the APC.
It was learnt that the former Minister had earlier met with Governor Bello in his Wuse Zone 6 residence in Abuja before the duo proceeded to Governor Buni’s Guest House.
Insider sources said Chief Fani-Kayode was prepared to apologise to President Muhammadu Buhari to be readmitted into the Party.
Known for his virtolic attacks on President Buhari and his administration,the former Minister had slammed the President for alluding in his speech during the nation’s 60th independence that those who had contributed to socio- economic problems of the country should appreciate the efforts his administration was making to reverse the situation.
The President had said in his anniversary speech that “those in the previous Governments from 1999 to 2015, who presided over the near destruction of the country, have now the impudence to attempt to criticize our efforts.”
The former Minister took to his Twitter handle to say that President Buhari had taken everything that former leaders gave Nigerians.
Fani-Kayode wrote: “It is sad that Buhari attacked Obasanjo, Yar’adua and Jonathan in his speech.
“This is a case of misplaced aggression, an expression of frustration and an acknowledgement of his own failings.”
“OBJ , UMYA & GEJ gave us back our dignity and self-respect. PMB came and took them back from us.”
It remains to be seen how the situation will pan out.
