Because I met the leaders of the APC -fani-kayode
Former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode said her meeting with the leaders of the All-Progressive Congress was to discuss “the state of the nation, national issues, party politics and next steps.”
Fani-Kayode met yesterday with APC President, Yobe Governor Mai Buni and Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello.
Images of the meeting sparked controversy over the fact that Fani-Kayode, a member of the People’s Democratic Party, was on the verge of joining the APC, which he vehemently criticizes.
In a statement Tuesday on his official Twitter profile, Fani-Kayode said the meeting with the APC leadership was meant to build bridges, bring political divisions and regional boundaries together to save Nigeria from drifting in a civil war.
He also said he was negotiating with leaders of other political parties besides the ruling SPS.
He said, “Yesterday I had the honor and privilege of having a very productive and important meeting with Nat. APC President, Yobe State Governor Mai Buni and Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello. We discussed the state of the nation, national issues, party politics and next steps.
These meetings are far-reaching and ongoing, and I am glad to be involved. Despite the obvious advantages and wisdom of this noble initiative, it amazes me that some people feel that it is wrong for me to sit with other leaders of the country and discuss issues that affect and relate to national unity, the future and stability of our country. … This is the time when we must put aside all our differences, build bridges and unite to prevent our country from sliding into fratricidal carnage and civil war.
It is right and appropriate for us to speak up and try to join forces on political, religious and regional issues to save Nigeria. I cannot and never want to compromise or give up my core principles for any reason, and I firmly hold my sincere opinion that we must charm justice, fairness and justice in this country for it to survive. I also believe in the restructuring of the country and in a vigorous and effective fight against terrorism. The fact is that I am negotiating with the relevant floor managers. the parties, including the ruling party, do not in any way depart from this, and this does not mean that I will ever change these views. The next few months will be critical in determining whether our country will survive as a united country, and I believe that if we want to, dialogue, building bridges and cooperation, even with those with whom you may not agree on some issues. it is vital and inevitable. This was the purpose of our meeting. For the record, let me add the following. I will always fight for justice and will never stop resisting evil.
“However, the greatest evil we face today is the prospect of a second civil war.
“Despite our differences, as leaders and statesmen, we must all sheathe our swords and never go this way. May God help our country and may he guide us all. “
