Saturday PUNCH,described as an insult the claim by Fani-Kayode that he was instrumental in his defection last year.The controversial ex-minister made the statement while speaking to journalists after he was presented to the Buhari.Fani-Kayode had hinted at the possibility of the governors of Bauchi, Enugu and Oyo states dumping the PDP and joining him in the APC.

But speaking on television on Friday morning, Umahi said Fani-Kayode must withdraw his statement, adding that the ex-minister was “never” part of the discussions that led to his defection.The governor said, “He (Fani-Kayode) needs to withdraw that statement. He is my good friend but it was an insult to my person and the other governors. The man did not know when I moved but, incidentally, he visited me and we discussed and he said he was coming to join me with other governors to declare.

“How would somebody in PDP be instrumental to my moving, a whole governor of a state, not even a small governor – an experienced governor. So, he has to withdraw the statement; he was never part of any discussion of my movement. I moved the South-East to the centre of administration; I moved to close the gap between the centre and South-East which our forefathers, like Nnamdi Azikiwe, fought for. He remains my friend but he played no role in my movement and I am sure he did not play any role in the movement of others.”

Also reacting, the Enugu State Government described the possibility of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi joining Fani-Kayode in the APC as a distraction.The State Commissioner for Information, Mr Chidi Aroh, said, “You should tell Fani-Kayode to explain more about what he said because my governor is the chairman of the PDP zoning committee doing his work in that committee and he is also providing dividends of democracy to the people of Enugu.”

However, opposition to the admittance of Fani-Kayode into the APC has continued to mount.Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Babafemi Ojodu, wrote “This is the saddest day of my political career,” on his Facebook page to describe his disappointment with the decision to admit the former minister into the party.

Also, a former Lagos State APC Publicity Secretary, Joe Igbokwe, who before now, was Fani-Kayode’s sparring partner during the 2019 general elections, also expressed his anger in aFacebookpost.He wrote: “Despite all my push for the APC, Abuja has not given me a phone call not to talk of inviting me for a coffee with the C-in-C but here is a political charlatan and prostitute being given a red carpet in the seat of power, Abuja. APC rewards enemies. They pamper enemies. This life has no balance at all.

“Please, I am ok where I am today but I know a countless number of APC diehards who are 100 per cent better than FFK. Nobody has remembered them. Not even a recharge card, not even a bottle of coke, not even thank you.”Copyright PUNCHAll rights reserved.
