Indications emerged on Tuesday that former Minister for Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The former Minister was at the Presidential Villa, Abuja where he was in a closed door meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan.
Fani-Kayode has been one of the most vocal critics of President Jonathan over the last few years.
After the meeting which lasted for about one hour, Fani-Kayode refused to officially state whether he was quitting the APC or not.
While stating that the type of meeting he came for was not unusual, he said “this is a Presidential Villa, the President is a President of Nigeria and every single person in this country that is a Nigerian is entitled to come here from time to time, when the doors are open to come and pay their respect to the wonderful people that are here. As a Nigerian, I have done that today and I am delighted to be here.”
When asked whether he was dumping the APC, he said, “the step that I will take will be made known to Nigerians at the right time.
The most important thing and I think you are fully aware of this is that I cannot and I will not be associated with a situation whereby any group of people is promoting a religion above another.
I think all of us have gone past the stage of religious politics in this country. We must treat the Muslim community with utmost respect and we must treat the Christian community in the same way and even the non-religious.”
