The O’odua Peoples Congress, a Yoruba socio-political organisation, has accused Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, of being a government agent among Yoruba Nation agitators.
The group made this known in a press
statement by its Publicity Secretary, Yinka Oguntimehin, titled, “Defection: Be ready for more betrayers, OPC blasts Fani-Kayode says, “FG’s 4bn dollar loans have no economic value”, on Friday.
The OPC told Yoruba people to be ready to see many betrayers in the coming days, saying “more people like Femi Fani-Kayode abound within the South-West region”.
It described Fani-Kayode as a “political jobber with no ideology”, adding that he “has no measure of integrity”.
The organisation said the defection of the former aviation minister was “never a surprise because he had been romancing with All Progressive Congress stalwarts all over the country”.
Before rejoining APC, Fani-Kayode was one of the outspoken politicians in support of Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, fondly called Igboho.
Also, Igboho had in a statement issued by his former media aide, Olayomi Koiki, in March 2021, said, “Chief Femi Fani Kayode is one of the stakeholders that identifies with us on the struggle of Yoruba Nation agitation. We have 100 per cent confidence in him (Fani-Kayode).”
OPC, however, urged Yoruba people not to be disappointed by the ex-minister’s move.
The statement partly reads, “You can’t trust a politician, Femi Fani-Kayode is just one out of the lot. He has no principle, and he is an agent of the government. So it is never a new thing to see him defecting from PDP to APC. Fani-Kayode has no measure of integrity and he is a political jobber with no ideology.
“Of what value is his defection to the APC? But the truth is Yoruba should be ready for more of Femi Fani Kayodes in our midst.”
