Dino Melaye, the Senator representing Kogi west has said former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, got healed of political blindness before him.
Fani-Kayode was a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the party Melaye has indicated he is dumping for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The ex-Minister left APC for PDP in 2014 and campaigned actively for ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, just like Melaye did for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.
He was among those who reacted to the video Melaye posted on Friday night.
In the Instagram clip, the Senator said he had missed PDP and could not wait to be back “home”.
Fani-Kayode tweeted: “I am glad that those that deserted us, fought us,insulted us,persecuted us and derided us for supporting @GEJonathan in 2015 are now singing that they are coming back ‘home’ to PDP. Their error of judgement,lack of foresight and love affair with Buhari cost the nation dearly.”
In his own response, Melaye said he and Fani-Kayode were blind, but the former Minister recovered before him.
“My brother FFK and I are both returnee to PDP. He only got healed of political blindness before me. Thank God we both can now see. Once we were blind and now we can see,” Melaye tweeted.
