- Reactions continue to trail the purported plans of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode to defect to the ruling APC
-Some youths within the party have threatened to walk out the former minister any day he attends an APC function
- Fani-Kayode's rumoured plan to join the APC continues to be a trending topic especially on social media
Some youths who are members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have threatened to walk-out Chief Femi Fani-Kayode any day he attends the party's functions.
The youths took to social media to reveal their plans after rumours surfaced in the media that Fani-Kayode, a former aviation minister, is on his way back to the APC.
Olalekan Paul, a young member of the party fired the first salvo in a tweet.
He wrote on Twitter:
“The day FFK will know he is irrelevant is when he attends any APC function and we the young people stage a walk out to register our displeasure.”
Responding, another APC youth, D. Olusegun wrote:
“This will happen but we won't walk out. We will walk him out. This is our party. We have as much claim to it as the people trying to bring him in. You can count on it by the way.”
Olusegun's tweet was retweeted by Ismaeel Ahmed, a respected youth leader in the ruling party who recently led young people in APC to visit President Muhammadu Buhari.
In response to Fani-Kayode's rumoured return to APC, Ahmed had tweeted:
“Some days when somethings happen I just can’t talk, but I will ACT. WE WILL ACT. Let it happen first.”
Legit.ng had earlier reported that Bashir Ahmad, the personal assistant to President Buhari on new media, frowned at the reports that Fani-Kayode might be heading back to the APC.
He wrote on Twitter:
“If he decides to join the governing party, I don’t think he will be welcome by majority of the party members, who he made it a duty to attack and insult for several years.”
Meanwhile, the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, has declared that access should be given to members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), willing to join the APC in the ongoing membership registration exercise of the ruling party.
Omo-Agege made the comment on Tuesday, February 2 in his country home in Orogun, Ughelli North local government area of Delta state.
According to him, the essence of the exercise is to rejuvenate the party in preparation for future elections hence the need to get more members into the APC fold.
