Fani-Kayode was presented by the chairman, Caretaker Committee of the APC and governor of Yobe state, Mai Mala Buni to President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, September 16, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

"There's nothing wrong with a politician switching side, it happens everywhere especially here, the the reason many people are surprised is that, they followed FFKs criticism without thinking twice and understanding politics. It is true that the manner in which he criticise the government may or may not be misleading depending on the part you choose to see it. Nigerians, especially youths should wise up! and get involved now."
