A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has stated that he has no regret joining the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Fani-Kayode made this claim on Saturday, November 27; months after he dumped the Peoples Democratic Party for the APC.
This came in the wake of rumours that the former minister joined the ruling party in order to quench his corruption case before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
However, the anti-graft agency, despite Fani-Kayode’s defection to the APC, last week invited him to their office; over alleged forgery as well as manipulation of documents.
Fani-Kayode on Saturday in his reaction to the latest happenings; claimed that he is proud to be a member of APC.
In an Instagram post, Fani-Kayode said, “I am proud to be a member of the APC. I have NO regrets. I NEVER said that APC has betrayed me. I am proud & honoured to be at the party.
“What God has ordained cannot be stopped. I shall be what God wants me to be. My destiny is irreversible and I am unstoppable.”
Meanwhile, former President Goodluck Jonathan has explained that he signed the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Development Act in 2010; to ensure that at least 80 per cent of the needs of the nation’s oil industry is produced locally.
Jonathan stated this on Friday, November 26; when he led his course mates, the 1981 Class of the University of Port Harcourt Alumni; on a visit to the Oil and Gas Industrial Park, at Emayal 1 in Ogbia Local Government of Bayelsa.
1st News also reports that the former president and his classmates visited their former lecturer; who was likewise the first Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Port-Harcourt, Emeritus Prof. E. J. Alagoa, in his home town.
“When I was deputy governor in 2000, I led the Bayelsa trade delegation to China; because we came from an oil-producing area.
“They took us to their oil city and if you go to the city; you will be happy with the oil operations; there are oil wells in the front of offices and houses.”
