The National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign organization, Femi Fani-Kayode left the opposition party out of fear of being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Tinubu stated that the APC had refused to influence the EFCC to drop charges against Fani-Kayode and this led to the latter’s departure from the party.

The APC leader made the comments via a statement released by his media aide, Sunday Dare.

The statement reads:

“Bola Tinubu helped build the great platform for change; he wholeheartedly supports the APC ticket because he believes it is the last best hope to rescue Nigeria from the disaster Fani-Kayode and his ilk will want to continue.”

“I pray Nigerians will not allow them to misgovern us a day past May 29. If Fani-Kayode pretends not to know of Tinubu’s efforts to build and support the APC, it comes as no surprise.”

“Fani-Kayode tried before to be part of the party but left when he found out there was no room for his games. Because the APC could not help to free him from the EFCC and the aviation fraud, he ran away to the party that blocked the EFCC on his behalf.”

 “Fani-Kayode is not as smart as he thinks. If you read between the lines of his hysteria, you see another extreme sentiment: that of surging desperation. His statement indicates that even he now realises that his paymaster has lost to Buhari/Osinbajo.”

“The game is over. The whistle has blown. What the fantasy man seeks to do is change the game. He seeks to run against Tinubu in hopes the outcome will be better. Fani-Kayode now grasps at straws in the night wind.”

Fani-Kayode is currently facing money laundering charges before a Lagos High Court.
