Controversial former Minister for Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has yet again triggered speculations that he may be making his way to the ruling All Progressives Congress, the APC.
Fani-Kayode who was rumoured to be defecting to the APC had earlier refuted the claims, saying he was still with the PDP, although this affirmation was rather adulterated by a statement from Kogi State governor and strong APC stalwart, Yahaya Bello.
It will be recalled that Yahaya Bello had in a viral video saying that Fani-Kayode had joined the APC.
However, tons of reactions have trailed social media following the recent pictures of a meeting with the former minister, caretaker chairman of the All Progressives Congress and also Governor of Yobe State, Mai Buni.
Fani-Kayode revealed this via his twitter handle where he wrote:
Building bridges and going from strength to strength with my friend and brother Governor Mai Buni of Yobe state who is also the National Chairman of APC, yesterday. We shall prevail
Although Fani-Kayode’s post has been greeted with mixed reactions, while some believe the recent posts by the former minister are just mere picture stories other believe his frequent meetings with some APC stalwarts seem like a finishing touch to his “imminent” defection.
A twitter user by the handle BarrROUN199 while reacting to the post wrote:
What strength? What exactly wouldsay he’s achieving thru his picturesque meetings? He’s not anything he thinks he is but a mere butterfly that thinks itself a bird I wrote him off when I saw how he talked down on journalists. Let him manage his family well first

Sir, sorry I am curious, too many pictures with everyone across board irrespective of party or tribe, all these won’t amount to any thing useful to your fans as we don’t know the direction this is leading us.
Fani-Kayode who refuted such claims of defections a few weeks ago, his recent parley with some strong foot soldiers of the APC have not affirmed that.
It is quite unclear if he is nursing a presidential bid for 2023 or just building bridges.
