Fresh reports reaching the desk of Africa Daily News, New York, the Nigerian Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has also described the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar as a traitor.
It has also been revealed that the Director of Special Media Projects and New Media Tinubu/Shettima PCC, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode had made this revealation in a statement which he had issued on Thursday while he had been reacting to the statement credited to the spokesperson of the PDP Presidential Campaign Management Committee, Senator Dino Melaye.
Melaye had in a statement described the APC Vice Presidential candidate, Senator Kashim Shettima as a “grand commander of bandits”. He had also alleged that Shettima was aiming at getting to establish another office for the Boko Haram terrorists at the presidential villa if the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu manages to win the election in 2023.
Reacting, Fani-Kayode had also described Atiku as a serial betrayal who had eventually betrayed everyone whom he has worked with, including former President Obasanjo, late Gen. Musa Yar’Adua and his brother, former President, late Musa Yar’Adua.
He described Melaye’s outburst as an absolute nonsense and he had also noted that the allegation against Shettima had been absurd and designed to terrify Nigerians in general and make them feel that APC is actually a party of terrorists and that the party’s candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is a man who fully condones terrorism.
Fani-Kayode had also assured that the ruling APC will defeat Atiku in his ward at the polls.
He said: “These are nonsensical words, spoken on behalf of a nonsensical man, who is running a nonsensical campaign.
“I can tell you that Atiku Abubakar is a traitor, who continuously betrayed everybody that has worked with him, including President Obasanjo, late Gen. Yar’Adua, late President Yar’Adua, including APC and the PDP. His record of public office is betrayal.
“At the end of the day, he’ll betray PDP again. You remember, he betrayed the governors of his party. He broke his words and Dino Melaye is saying this is the man that should be President of our country. No way!”
Fani-Kayode, therefore, called on Atiku to stay at home, saying the presidential election will not be decided in Washington, Paris or Dubai but by Nigerians.
