The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has been described as a traitor by the presidential campaign council of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode stated this on Thursday while reacting to a statement of the spokesperson of the PDP presidential campaign council, Dino Melaye.
Melaye in a statement released earlier had described the Vice Presidential candidate of the APC, Kashim Shettima as a grand commander of bandits.
The former lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district had alleged that Shettima is planning to establish an office for the Boko Haram terrorists in Aso Rock
Fani-Kayode in his reaction described Atiku as a serial betrayal who betrayed everyone he has worked with.
He claimed that the former vice president betrayed the likes of former Presidents, Olusegun Obasanjo, Musa Yar’adua, APC and PDP.
Fani-Kayode described Melaye’s statement against Shettima as nonsensical words, spoken on behalf of a nonsensical man.
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 a 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!”
