President Muhammadu Buhari’s ex-Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, has said Nigeria has entered one-chance under the Buhari government whom he accused of not honoring the promises he made prior to his election in 2015. 

Dalung who was reacting to Fani Kayode's defection back to the party he once badmouthed for over 6 years, said he's never been disappointed and ashamed that Buhari would stoop so low to welcome a traitor and someone known for being a 'political hawker'. 

Speaking in a statement issued on Friday, Dalung said, “In the whole of my existence, I have not been ashamed of myself like yesterday (Thursday) when I watched Femi Fani-Kayode standing by the President in the State House in Abuja. 

"I have no problems with people’s political affiliations but I have issues with the manner the confidence and goodwill of Nigerians are being gambled with recklessly by clueless political elites.

“Could recruitment of political liabilities in the face of raving insecurity that has claimed lives of many innocent Nigerians who voted for us be the priority now?

“What has happened to the humanity of APC leaders that we are so insensitive to the mode of the nation? If we have such political strategies of conquering political opponents like Femi Fani-Kayode, then why have we failed to deploy the same to defeat Boko Haram, banditry, unknown gunmen, kidnapping?”

He lamented that the mission of APC that they formed in 2015 had changed, adding that people now joined the party to get “juicy appointments.” 

Dalung said, “This wasn’t our mission when we mobilised Nigerians to trust us with power in 2015. The fear of APC is the beginning of wisdom, once a corrupt politician joins APC his sins are forgiven; all corruption charges will be automatically dropped and compensations with juicy appointments will follow.

“Loyalty in the APC party is a capital offence, no wonder Femi Fani-Kayode insulted President Buhari and swore he will prefer to die than joining APC.

“He is now the latest political bride of the President whom he earlier called a “criminal”. If this is what our party can offer at this critical stage of our national history, then Nigeria has entered one-chance.”

Meanwhile, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Joe Igbokwe, has lamented the red carpet acceptance of Kayode back to the APC, saying it appears the party now reward enemies while loyalists are used and dumped. 

Igbokwe who made the lamentation in a Facebook post, said, “Despite all my push for the APC, Abuja has not given me a phone call talk-less of inviting me for a coffee with c in c (commander-in-chief) but here is a political charlatan and prostitute being given a red carpet in the seat of power, Abuja. 

“APC reward enemies. They pamper enemies. This life no balance at all. 

“Please I am ok where I am today but I know countless number of APC diehards who are 100 per cent better than FFK. Nobody has remembered them. Not even a recharge card, not even a bottle of coke, not even thank you.”
