Femi Fani-Kayode, a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), said Atiku Abubakar’s quest for the presidency will be pitifully put to rest by at least six governors in the camp of the PDP.
The former aviation minister in his new permutation said the six PDP governors will also endorse the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu, in January 2023.
Fani-Kayode stated the above in the statement he authored and released on Friday.
He added that, unlike the PDP, the APC is not a party of arrogant, boastful, delusional, ungrateful, and relentless backstabbers.
The former minister said: “The endorsement and declaration of support that Bola Ahmed Tinubu will get from at least 6 (not just 5) Governors from the PDP this January will finally put to rest the pitiful delusion that Atiku Abubakar stubbornly harbors about winning the 2023 presidential election.
“His (Atiku) eyes will soon clear.
“Those that still suffer from the illusion that he will win the election base their confidence and hope on two premises.
“Firstly that the Northern Governors and President Muhammadu Buhari will turn their backs on and betray Tinubu at the last minute and secondly that, even in the event of them sticking with BAT, they are so unpopular in their various and respective states that they will not be able to carry their people along.
“Both of these premises are FALSE.
“They are nothing but the desperate wishes, pathetic hopes, and futile prayers of a vainglorious, giddy, confused, and long-dead opposition that has lost touch with reality.
“Not only will the Northern Governors of the APC and PMB honor their word and hold the line but they will also carry their people along with them in an eloquent, compelling, historic, resounding, and overwhelming manner.
“Unlike the PDP, the APC is not a party of arrogant, boastful, delusional, ungrateful, and relentless backstabbers, traitors, bigots, hegemonists, and incurable irredentists who are wholly incapable of honoring their word, who never reward loyalty, who have sought to belittle and destroy anyone and everyone that has supported them and saved them from falling over the brink and who are firmly on the path of self-destruction.
“The massive support that Asiwaju will receive in the North and indeed all over the country will sweep away all doubts, secure him a resounding victory, cement our national unity, make Nigeria whole again and usher in a new and refreshing era of hope, security, progress, and prosperity.”
