APC northern leaders behind Boko Haram —Fani-Kayode

Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, on Monday evening, took on the  All Progressives Congress (APC), alleging that the Northern elements within the party were sponsoring operations of the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist group.

Addressing newsmen in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State, shortly  after attending the campaign rally of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he contended that “the APC in the north is the political wing of Boko Haram in the Northern part of Nigeria. This, I have said before and no one amongst them was bold enough to challenge me. I will continue to say it again and again.”

Fani-Kayode, who affirmed that the APC leaders could not exonerate themselves from the growing insecurity problems plaguing the nation, said the northern elements in the APC had to explain to all Nigerians why some of their leaders in the North encourage and defend Boko Haram members.”

“No member of the APC has been bold enough to controvert what I said about their relationship with the Boko Haram members in the North. I stand to be challenged if any of them has a contrary view.”

Fani-Kayode,  who recently defected from the APC to the PDP hinted that he had consulted “critical stakeholders in the PDP, including President Goodluck Jonathan and they had assured me of an enabling stay in the party.”

While assuring that he would work for the victory of the PDP in the forthcoming August 9, 2014 governorship poll in Osun, he expressed his readiness to contribute meaningfully to the victory of the party in the 2015 general elections, declaring that the PDP remains the only national party in the country.

When asked to comment on his recent meeting with President Jonathan, Fani-Kayode asserted that “I will not like to reveal what we discuss in the secret. It was a closed door meeting and let us leave that for now.”
