Reno Omokri, former presidential spokesperson, has said he will never join the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Omokri said this in response to a question by radio personality, Yaw, who asked if he would join the ruling party if his former principal and president, Goodluck Jonathan, joins the party.
There have been reports that Jonathan had indicated interest in joining the APC.
However, his spokesperson, Ikechukwu Eze, has described the reports as “fake news”.
On Thursday, former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, decamped to the APC from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Reacting to question, Reno stated that he is not Fani-Kayode.
He pointed out that he is a stable person character wise, adding that the media personality and Nigerians should be able to gauge his future conduct from his past conduct.
He assured that Jonathan will never join the APC, but if he decides to defect, he will not move with him.
Omkri noted that his “stomach does not control his mouth.”
“Dear @yawazobiafm,” he wrote.
“I am not Femi Fani-Kayode. I urge you, your radio station, and the general Nigerian public not to be emotionally agitated. Don’t be excitable. Be rational. Put things into proper perspective. Study my past. Am I or am I not a stable person? You and the public should be able to gauge my future conduct from my past conduct. Let me make this clear: Former President Jonathan will not join the APC. And even if he does, I will NOT go with him. But he won’t.
“Fani-Kayode’s behaviour is not representative of my behaviour. My late father was an Appeal Court Justice. Investigate him. He was known for being an honest judge.
“I was a Presidential spokesman for four years. Nobody has even accused me of stealing a pin. Betrayal, grovelling and instability are not in my DNA. So what will make me vulnerable to APC? My pedigree is too important to me to soil. I must pass it unblemished to my children as it was passed on, unblemished, to me. My stomach does not control my mouth. What I say, and how I behave, are dictated by conscience, not by appetite!”
