The former Minister, said that it is insulting to say that he had joined the “filthy, rat-infested sinking ship like the Almajiri Peoples Party, APC”.
In a post on his verified Twitter handle, @realFFK, he wrote: “The suggestion that I have dumped @OfficialPDPNig for @OfficialAPCNg, is false and deeply insulting.
“Those that are peddling this fake news should bury their heads in shame.
“I would rather die than join a filthy, rat-infested sinking ship like the Almajiri Peoples Party, APC.”
Fani-Kayode has remained a fierce critic of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
