An aide to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe, has criticised the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for granting a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode access to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Fani-Kayode, on Thursday officially defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC, and was presented to Buhari by the Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the APC, and governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Fani-Kayode, who has recently been hobnobbing with APC chieftains and bigwigs, said he was led by God in his decision.
In a post on his Facebook page, Igbokwe, a former spokesperson for the APC in Lagos, questioned the party for giving attention to a "political charlatan and prostitute".
"Despite all my push for APC, Abuja has not given me a phone talk less of inviting me for coffee with the C-in-C. But here is a political charlatan and prostitute being given a red carpet in the seat of power, Abuja,” Joe Igbokwe wrote.
Igbokwe also called on a former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose to admit Buhari is not an impostor.
He urged the former governor to also go to the Presidential Villa to see Buhari like Fani-Kayode did.
Fayose had described Buhari as an impostor from Niger Republic.
Igbokwe said, "Now that FFK who said the person in Aso Rock is not PMB has gone to the same seat of power to confirm that PMB is real, let Fayose go also to the Villa to speak the truth to power in order to rest the case."
The former minister, known for his inconsistent stance on public issues, had said he joined the APC to help unite the country.
According to him, he was against anything that would cause the disintegration of Nigeria.
He also claimed he was instrumental to the defection of three PDP governors to the APC.
He identified the governors as Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, Ben Ayade of Cross River State and Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State.
He further said he has friends across party lines and was wooing the governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde and the governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed to also join the ruling party.
However, two years ago following rumours that the former Minister had joined the APC, he completely ruled out the possibility of defecting to the ruling party.
Taking to Twitter, he described the ruling party as “a filthy, rat-infested sinking ship.”
He also called the party “darkness” and “the Almajiri Peoples Congress (APC)”.
