Femi Fani-Kayode, the Director of New Media for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, has accused some people in Aso Rock of working for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Atiku Abubakar.
The former Aviation Minister made the claim during an interview on Channels TV on Wednesday evening.
The submission by Fani-Kayode comes only a few hours after Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai said some elements in the Aso Rock Villa were working to sabotage the APC candidate, Bola Tinubu because their preferred candidate did not win the party primaries.
In light of El-Rufai’s earlier submission, Fani-Kayode also stated that some people are working behind the scenes to promote Atiku.
All these distractions are very disturbing because we are working hard but some people are working to throw obstacles on our path to make sure that this transition does not go smoothly. My view is that some may be working for candidates I consider weak like Atiku.
FFK Takes On Emefiele
Furthermore, Fani-Kayode questioned the timing of the Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele’s, new naira note policy.
He believes the timing of such a policy is questionable.
I find questionable the policies of the governor of the Central Bank. I don’t question the policy itself but the timing. People are suffering; people are going through hell; they can’t achieve anything. But this is what they are going to do, he said.
Atiku Camp Reacts
In response to the claim, Charles Aniagwu, a spokesperson for the Atiku campaign, said the APC was only trying to blackmail President Muhammadu Buhari because he wants a credible election.
Aniagwu questioned why the ruling APC is the one raising the alarm about plans to derail the 2023 elections.
All this blackmail by the APC it’s because the president is determined to leave behind a very credible election. And for us in the PDP, we support the attempt by the president to leave behind a very credible election.
Why are they crying more than the bereaved. The opposition should be the one to cry. They are the ones attacking the president.
