Yoruba socio-political group, the O’odua Peoples Congress, has accused a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, of being an agent of the Nigerian authorities amongst Yoruba Nation agitators.
The group made this recognized in a press assertion by its Publicity Secretary, Yinka Oguntimehin, titled, “Defection: Be ready for more betrayers, OPC blasts Fani-Kayode says, “FG’s 4bn dollar loans have no economic value”, on Friday.
The OPC advised Yoruba folks to be able to see many betrayers within the coming days, saying “more people like Femi Fani-Kayode abound within the South-West region”.
It described Fani-Kayode as a “political jobber with no ideology”, including that he “has no measure of integrity”.
The organisation mentioned the defection of the previous aviation minister was “never a surprise because he had been romancing with All Progressive Congress stalwarts all over the country”.
Before rejoining APC, Fani-Kayode was one of many outspoken politicians in help of Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, fondly referred to as Igboho.
Also, Igboho had in a press release issued by his former media aide, Olayomi Koiki, in March 2021, mentioned, “Chief Femi Fani Kayode is one of the stakeholders that identifies with us on the struggle of Yoruba Nation agitation. We have 100 per cent confidence in him (Fani-Kayode).”
OPC, nonetheless, urged Yoruba folks to not be disillusioned by the ex-minister’s transfer.
The assertion partly reads, “You can’t trust a politician, Femi Fani-Kayode is just one out of the lot. He has no principle, and he is an agent of the government. So it is never a new thing to see him defecting from PDP to APC. Fani-Kayode has no measure of integrity and he is a political jobber with no ideology.
“Of what value is his defection to the APC? But the truth is Yoruba should be ready for more of Femi Fani Kayodes in our midst.”
