Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani Kayode, has agreed to praising President Muhammadu Buhari for the release of Zainab Aliyu but has denied defecting to the ruling party.

Kayode, in his tweets, said the reports that he had joined APC are false but that he indeed commended the president for getting Zainab Aliyu out of Saudi Arabia prison.

“Reports that I said I am “proud of Buhari” and that I have “dumped PDP” and “joined APC” are false. Those that are peddling such vile mendacities and perfidious falsehood are insane. I commended Buhari for getting the young lady in Saudi Arabia out of prison but it stops there,’’ he tweeted.

Reno Omokri, another critic of Buhari, also praised the president for securing the release of Zainab Aliyu.

The former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and an ardent critic of President Muhammed Buhari, in a tweet on Tuesday, said: “I celebrate the @MBuhari government for securing Zainab Aliyu’s release in record breaking time.

“President Buhari is to be commended.

“Now, I urge the President to apply the same sense of urgency that he showed for Zainab towards Leah Sharibu and make #FreeLeahSharibu a reality.’’
