Why I visited Yahaya Bello – Fanikayode

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has spoken on a visit he made to Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State on Monday.

Fanikayode in a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party while Bello is in the All Progressives Congress.

According to the former minister, he was there for a frank talk on how to move the country forward.

He said, “It was an honour to have spent quality time with the governor — my friend and brother.

“We had a frank, candid, fruitful and productive discussion on the way forward for our country.

“This is a clear case of politics without bitterness and of building bridges. This is a time that we as Nigerians must all come together as one to save our country.

“Bello received a former Minister of Aviation, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode, at his Abuja residence, appealing to Nigerians to practice politics without bitterness.

The Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr Onogwu Muhammed, quoted Bello in a statement as saying that embracing politics without bitterness would boost nation building and promote national integration.

Bello described Fani Kayode’s visit as a welcome development, stressing that all hands must be on deck to ensure that Nigeria remained an indivisible entity.

The governor said also that stakeholders must ensure that the fight against insecurity was fought without ethnic and regional biases.

“The support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in fighting insecurity and poverty in the country must be holistic, irrespective of party differences,” the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quotes him as saying.

“The All Progressives Congress (APC) remains the hope of Nigeria and it is important for everyone to support Buhari’s administration for the development of Nigeria as a country.”
