2023: Fani-Kayode on the march again, at the verge of dumping PDP for APC

The most committed critic of President Muhammadu Buhari and former minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode is not tired of moving back and forth between the two major Nigeria’s political parties; the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC,) each time returning to his vomit.

This time, he is at the verge of dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) six years after he left the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The former minister under ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo just met with chairman, Caretaker/Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Governor Mai Mala Buni and Kogi governor, Yahaya Bello, at a Guest House in Abuja.
It was gathered that the meeting that lasted for about 60 minutes, is not far from the move to fine-tune his plans for a return to the APC.
Fani-Kayode had earlier met with Governor Bello in his Wuse Zone 6 residence in Abuja before he was led to the party chairman’s Guest House.
In his recent meeting with the governor of Kogi state, Fani-Kayode claim that the visit provided a “frank, candid, fruitful, and productive discussion” about Nigeria.
Recall that in 2013
Femi Fani-Kayode, had announced his defection from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party to the then yet-to-be-registered All Progressives Congress.

In a post on his Facebook then, Fani-Kayode said he took the decision after he met with Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi earlier.

“I had a meeting with Gov. Kayode Fayemi afterwards and I have just publicly and formally declared for the APC,” the former minister said. “For me this is a great and historic day. Goodbye forever PDP.”
Then not long after in 2014 just before 2015 general election he also met with former President Goodluck when he said he had just realised that President Goodluck Jonathan was a responsible leader.

2023: It’s Our Turn To Produce President- North Central Patriot

Ahead of 2023 presidential election, a group, under the aegis of North Central Patriot, has called on the region to agitate for presidency.

The agitation, the group said, has become imperative as the region has not produce presidency since the inception of democracy in the country in 1999.

The group urged the people from the region to come together and fight for this position as 2023 has given another oppotunity for such agitation.

The North Central Patriot specifically urged its people to take advantage of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) zonal congress coming up in Benue on Saturday, adding that such avenue is good opportunity to express this concern to members.

The group noted that the Zonal Congress is an avenue to put plans in place for the call for North Central presidency.

The group, in a statement by its President, Bitrus Paul, noted that if there is any better place or time for this agitation is this congres.

The North Central Patriot said: “Enough is enough, this is our time to produce the President. Other zones have had a stint in that position, we also need to taste it. The era of playing the second fiddle is over, we also need to lead the affairs of this nation.”

The group pointed out that North Central doesn’t lack quality leaders, who can hold positions, give directive and lead the nation from all fronts.

“No section of this country should be ignored when it comes to leadership position. The region has been ignored too long. This is the time for us to rise up and claim what we believe is ours at this point in time,” the group said.
