A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, said on Wednesday he has not quit the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The ex-minister had on Monday met the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker Committee, Mala Mai Buni; and Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, at the latter’s guest house in Abuja.
The meeting fueled speculation that Fani-Kayode is on the verge of returning to the party he left about seven years ago.
Bello also claimed that Fani-Kayode, who is one of the vocal critics of APC and President Muhammadu Buhari has agreed to rejoin the ruling party.
However, the ex-minister, who reacted to the development on his Twitter handle, admitted that he met the APC chieftains.
But he declared that he has not quit the PDP.
Fani-Kayode wrote: “Though we have had meetings across party lines and we are in a season of political consultation, I have not left the PDP.”
