A former presidential aspirant of the All Progressive Congress, Adamu Garba, has taken a swipe at the President Muhammadu Buhari administration over the reception of former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, into the party.

Garba who took to his Facebook page on Monday said it is a double standard for “forgiving” Fani-Kayode, and “treating former National Secretary of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Buba Galadima as an outcast.”

Fani-Kayode officially defected on Thursday and was presented to President Buhari by the Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the APC, and governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The former minister, who has recently been hobnobbing with APC chieftains and bigwigs, said he was led by God in his decision.

The former minister, known for his inconsistent stance on public issues, added that he joined the APC to help unite the country.

This is despite his constant denial of the possibility of defecting to APC.

Taking to Twitter, he had at the time described the ruling party as “a filthy, rat-infested sinking ship.”

He had also christened the party as “darkness” and “the Almajiri Peoples Congress (APC)”.

Garba on his Facebook page tackled the current government for its acceptance of ‘FFK’, as Fani-Kayode is called, back to its fold.

“The real definition of double standard is forgiving FFK and absorbing him back to APC while treating Buba Galadima as an outcast despite his evident historical commitments,” Garba wrote on his known Facebook page on Monday.
