Femi Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has debunked speculations that he has joined the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying he would rather die than join the ruling party.

Fani-Kayode, a former minister of Aviation and Culture respectively, stated his position in a series of posts on Twitter on Sunday.

He described the allegations indicating that he had decamped to the APC as “insulting”.

He wondered why some persons were deliberately misinforming Nigerians that he had joined what he described as a “filthy, rat-infested sinking ship”.

“The suggestion that I joined the APC is false and insulting. Those that are peddling this fake news should bury their heads in shame. With what we have witnessed I would rather die than join a filthy, rat-infested sinking ship like the Almajiri Peoples Congress (APC).

“Those that claim that I have joined them & that seek to link my good name to such a bloodthirsty, blood-lusting, accursed political association of Boko Haramists, Fulani herdsmen, genocidal maniacs, ethnic cleansers, mass murderers, ethnic supremacists, religious bigots, cow-lovers and corrupt treasury looters that have brought nothing but death, division, misery, poverty, incompetence, shame and destruction to our nation and our people will burn in hell forever!” he tweeted.

The former minister said he will continue to challenge the APC for its actions, saying that he will never join “darkness” as he represents light.

“I am committed to opposing the APC and those that are in their ranks for the rest of my natural life and I will NEVER join them no matter what! They are nothing but darkness whilst I stand for the light of God and truth: there can be NO fellowship between light and darkness,” he tweeted.
