The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Uche Secondus has warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) to leave former Aviation Minister Femi Fani-Kayode alone.
The warning was given by Secondus after a meeting with the former Aviation minister in the administration of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Secondus and Fani-Kayode was joined at the meeting at his residence by the PDP National Working Committee (NWC).
Secondus said APC should focus on fixing Nigeria’s broken economy and security, rather than poaching opposition members.
He said: “We advise our brothers on the other side, especially some of these governors and leaders of APC that they should face the business of governance.
“Jumping around and looking for critical stakeholders of our party to poach will not resolve the issue of security or economy.
“They are aware that security has broken down, the economy has broken down. They should face that business for which they were elected.
“Our brother is firm and a man of his word. There is no amount of trick that will make him sway otherwise. He is firm with PDP and we are back to business while will prepare for 2023.”
Recall that Fani-Kayode had met Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State and the interim Caretaker Chairman of APC, Mai Mala Buni.
This led to speculations that Fani-Kayode was planning to defect to the ruling APC.
Bello had also in a video claimed that the former minister had shown interest in joining APC.
