He was, on Thursday, presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by Mai Mala Buni, chairman, caretaker committee of the APC and governor of Yobe state, at the presidential villa, Abuja.

Fani-Kayode said he was led by the spirit of God in his decision to join the APC.

The former minister said he is committed to the unity of the country and that he is against anything that would cause the disintegration of Nigeria.

According to Fani-Kayode, he was instrumental in the defection of three Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors to the APC.

He listed Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state, Ben Ayade of Cross River, and Bello Matawale of Zamfara as the governors he helped facilitate their defection to APC.

Fani-Kayode said he has friends across party lines and that he is presently wooing Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the governor of Enugu state, Seyi Makinde, the governor of Oyo state, and Bala Mohammed of Bauchi to join the ruling party.

The former minister’s defection comes several months after he vehemently denied dumping the PDP.

Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi, had in February claimed that Fani-Kayode had crossed over to the APC.

But Fani-Kayode debunked Bello’s claim, insisting that he was still a member of PDP.

    God has really suffered in Nigeria. Now we see that drug addiction is an impossible habit to kick, and that genetics is the core basis for human behaviour. Like father, like son. Like Remi, like Femi.
    And this man has the temerity to stand next to Buhari after constantly savaging him.
    The genes of Afonja the horrible traitir conginue to haunt a genre of Nigerians. It was always a traitors joke.
    Watch him campaign for Tinubu or Osinbajo after savaging them, calling Osinbajo a toilet cleaner at the Villa.
    Again, after wasting the billions he stole while at the PDP, he is now broke, with sevearl wives and children. Who will help these Afonjites?
