Recall that Fani-Kayode left the APC at its early stage for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2014, castigating the former as a party that had a mission to Islamise Nigeria and inflict pains on Nigerians.
Adaji, who aspired for the House of Representatives seat for Ankpa/Olamaboro/Omala Constituency of Kogi state in 2015 and 2019, recalled that Fani-Kayode, since 2014, disparaged Buhari using unfriendly adjectives as wicked, dead, draconian, dictatorial among others.
He wondered why the same Kayode would go to the Villa to have a handshake with the same president that was dead, deceitful, wicked, anti democratic, incompetent among others.
Fani-Kayode may be rewarded
Legit.ng reported that although he has not mentioned any intention of joining the 2023 presidential race, Femi Fani-Kayode by defecting to APC might just be aiming for something really big at the corridors of power.
The ruling party is known to often reward those who pledge and demonstrate allegiance to its platform.
This being the case, the former aviation minister stands a chance of being rewarded with the APC's presidential ticket ahead of the next general polls or at least allowed to emerge as a running mate to whoever is eventually chosen to become a flagbearer.
Fani-Kayode speaks on allegations that he joined APC for financial reasons
Meanwhile, Fani-Kayode had reacted angrily to insinuations that he defected to the APC for financial reasons.
He also explained why he was not bothered about his past criticisms against President Buhari and the APC administration.
