Defection: ‘Fani-Kayode is an agent of govt’, OPC warns Yoruba Nation agitators

The O’odua Peoples Congress has accused a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, of being an agent of government among Yoruba Nation agitators.

The group made this known in a press statement by its Publicity Secretary, Yinka Oguntimehin, titled, “Defection: Be ready for more betrayers, OPC blasts Fani-Kayode says, “FG’s 4bn dollar loans have no economic value”, on Friday.


The OPC told Yoruba people to be ready to see many betrayers in the coming days, saying “more people like Femi Fani-Kayode are abound within the South-West region”.

It described Fani-Kayode as a “political jobber with no ideology”, adding that he “has no measure of integrity”.


The organisation said the defection of the former aviation minister was “never a surprise because he had been romancing with All Progressive Congress stalwarts all over the country”.


Before rejoining APC, FFK was one of the outspoken politicians in support of Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, fondly called Igboho.


Also, Igboho had in a statement issued by his former media aide, Olayomi Koiki, in March 2021, said, “Chief Femi Fani Kayode is one of the stakeholders that identifies with us on the struggle of Yoruba Nation agitation. We have 100 per cent confidence in him (Fani-Kayode).”


OPC, however, urged Yoruba people not to be disappointed by the ex-minister’s move, saying Nigerian politicians are like Chameleon that often change colors at ease.


The statement read, “You can’t trust a politician, Femi Fani-Kayode is just one out of the lot. He has no principle, and he is an agent of the government. So it is never a new thing to see him defecting from PDP to APC. Fani-Kayode has no measure of integrity and he is a political jobber with no ideology.


“Of what value is his defection to the APC. But the truth is Yoruba should be ready for more of Femi Fani Kayodes in our midst.

“A few months ago, our leader, the Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Abiodun Ige Adams, said in one of the group’s events that in the coming days before the 2023 elections, many people would show the stuff they were made of.

“He said many of our politicians are like a chameleon, they change so often, and that many of those that hitherto claimed to be true Yoruba sons and daughters would shift and change their positions because of cheap political crumbs, and position.

“And this prediction is now playing out with the defection of the former minister, many trusted allies of our race would soon join the train as he had rightly said.”
