Former Minister of Aviation and one of the fiercest critics of President Goodluck Jonathan, Femi Fani Kayode yesterday visited the Presidential Villa where he held discussions with the President.
Though he declined to divulge what he discussed with the President, Femi Fani-Kayode told state House Correspondents that every Nigerian who feel strongly about an issue should be able to discuss with the president about it.
â€œThis is a presidential villa, the president is a president of Nigeria every single person in this country that is a Nigerian is entitled to come here from time to time, when the doors are open to come and pay their respect to the wonderful people that are here as a Nigerian I have done that today and Iâ€™m delighted to be here.
â€œI have always believed that every Nigerian regardless of the side of the political divide they belong, and as a Nigerian myself I have believed that we disagree on an issue from time to time. The most important thing is for us to be able to resolve these issues come together to move this country forward. And I think every right thinking responsible person should be able to do that. They should also be able to come to the villa from time to time to see how they can help to move the country forward .
On if he is leaving APC, Femi Fani-Kayode said â€œthe step that I will take will be made known to Nigerians at the right time. The most important thing, and I think you are fully aware of this, is that I cannot and I will not be associated with a situation whereby any group of people is promoting a religion above another. I think all of us have gone past the stage of religious politics in this country. We must treat the Muslim community with utmost respect and we must that Christian community in the same way and even the non-religiousâ€ he said.
