Femi Fani-Kayode Lied. He Was Not Instrumental To My Defection To APC - Gov. Umahi
The Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Naweze Umahi has described a former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode as a liar for saying he was instrumental to his (Umahi’s) defection from the PDP to the ruling APC.
Umahi denied Fani-Kayode’s claims on Friday when he appeared on Channels Television.
Fani-Kayode , a staunch critic of President Muhammadu Buhari, and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had on Thursday announced his defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) a party he had vowed he would never be found dead in.
Fani-Kayode who was presented to President Buhari at the Aso Rock Villa after his defection, had stated that he was instrumental to the defection of a number of governors from the PDP, including Umahi, to the APC.
But Umahi said this was a lie.
Speaking as a guest of ‘Channels TV Sunrise Daily’, Umahi said Fani-Kayode owes him an apology.
“For someone to come and say that a whole Chairman of the Southeast Governors Forum, that he was instrumental to my movement from PDP to APC is an insult on my person, and with all due respect, he has to withdraw that statement.
“He remains my friend and a good one for that matter, but he played no role in my movement and I am sure he didn’t play any role in the movement of the rest of us.”
