All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK), has lambasted Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki for his comment on Bola Tinubu and the party.
Obaseki, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, warned Nigerians not to vote the APC presidential candidate in 2023, predicting that the country would split.
In a statement on Wednesday, Fani-Kayode noted that the notion is as nonsensical and puerile as it is asinine.
The New Media Director of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) said Obaseki suggested that Nigeria can only remain if PDP’s Atiku Abubakar wins.
He said while Obaseki is free to support Atiku, it was unfair for him to attribute divine status to the former vice president.
The former Aviation Minister described the ex-VP as “the most destructive force that has bedevilled the Fourth Republic”.
FFK said not only did he attempt to destroy President Olusegun Obasanjo and his administration, he also destroyed the chances of the PDP and President Goodluck Jonathan during the 2015 “by his infamous deceit and betrayal”.
“Today, he has done the same to PDP by dividing the party, violating its constitution with impunity, imposing himself as its presidential candidate, insisting on keeping a divisive man who calls himself the National Chairman.
“He devoured the first with his gluttony, hate and greed for power and he left the second intact hoping to devour it at a later date.
“If he ever becomes President he will destroy Nigeria itself in precisely the same way that he has destroyed the PDP.
“He will suck out the very soul of our nation with all its goodness and virtues and leave us a shadow of our former selves.
“He is a destroyer and not a unifier: a destroyer that is surrounded by a group of shady businessmen and wild and hungry touts who spend their time throwing crazy parties behind closed doors in exotic locations like Dubai, Paris and Morocco,” he added.
