Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi west, says Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister, got healed of political blindness before him.
Fani-Kayode was a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the party Melaye has indicated interest in leaving any moment from now.
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.
Fani-Kayode was among those who reacted to the video Melaye posted on Friday night.
In the footage, the senator said he has missed PDP and could not wait to be back “home”.
But 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.
Melaye fell out with the ruling party after a disagreement with Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi.
He accused Bello of being behind his recent travail in police custody. The lawmaker was charged with gunrunning and granted bail by a court after weeks in detention.
When he returned to the senate after he regained freedom, he opted to sit among PDP senators.
Shortly after then, he tweeted a picture of him standing next to Buhari. On the picture was the caption “That one na before before”.
