Mallam Tanko Ibrahim, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and also the chairman of the party's revival group, has warned his colleagues that the worst will happen if Femi Fani-Kayode defects to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Ibrahim specifically directed his warning to Ayodele Fayose, a former Ekiti governor for saying the erstwhile aviation minister will collapse if he dumps the PDP for the ruling party, Vanguard reports.

The PDP chieftain said this is because FFK has been a serious problem and stumbling block to the APC and the Buhari-led administration since its inception in 2015.

Moreover, Ibrahim claimed that the former minister is the pillar and backbone of the PDP and as such, if he defects to the APC, the party will come to nothing.

According to the chieftain, Fayose's comment shows he has lost touch with current political realities in the country.

His words:

“Fayose has lost touch with prevailing realities in the party, how can u say Fani-Kayode will be dead politically if he leaves the PDP? Fani-Kayode had been a thorn in the flesh of the ruling party since the Buhari government came to power in 2015”
“If FFK leaves PDP it is PDP that will die politically and not FFK. He is the strength and spirit behind PDP.
“He is the one that keeps everyone in the country that is opposed to Buhari going with his fighting spirit. Without FFK, APC will eat PDP for breakfast.”

Meanwhile, the recent meeting between Fani-Kayode, and the governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello of the APC generated a lot of reactions and comments among Nigerians on social media.

Many citizens on Twitter believed that Fani-Kayode's claim that the visit provided a "frank, candid, fruitful, and productive discussion" about Nigeria was nothing but wishful thinking.

Others felt this was just the duo playing to the gallery and trying to make people believe that they are serious about the nation's myriad of challenges and the way out of them.

A Twitter subscriber, Nwa Chukwu, fumed over the untold plight of the masses who voted the current administration into power but are living in abject penury.
