The meeting which took place even as the ruling party has commenced it’s fresh nationwide membership registration and revalidation exercise has sparked off speculation of a possible defection plan by Fani Kayode
Lukman in a statement issued Tuesday in Abuja warned the Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) not to register the former Aviation Minister without clearance from the Caucus of the party.
He described the likes of Fani-Kayode as a “bad baggage” for the APC.
PGF DG also warned that President Muhammadu Buhari may not be favourably disposed to accepting the former Minister in the APC , adding that such consideration will be stretching the trust of party members beyond acceptable limits.
Lukman recalled Fani-Kayode’s many derogatory statements, including open letters against the President and one of the APC national leaders recently.
