Senator Dino Melaye, the spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation (PCO), has responded to the alleged attack on President Muhammadu Buhari in Kano State.
WITHIN NIGERIA reported that some enraged Kano State youths hurled stones at President Buhari’s advance convoy and helicopter during an official visit to the state on Monday.
Despite the heavy security presence on the routes leading to Ahmadu Bello Way, where the President was scheduled to launch one of the projects, the protesting youths had time to embarrass the President.
In a tweet on Monday, Melaye claimed that the alleged fight between the President and the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was the reason for the incident.
The former lawmaker claimed Tinubu sponsored the attack to embarrass President Buhari, and that the plot to attack Buhari was orchestrated in Burdillon, the APC flag bearer’s hometown.
The fight between Tinubu and Buhari is entering a new dimension. The attack in Kano was properly coordinated and funded allegedly by Asiwaju.
The meeting to push Buhari to submission or face sponsored attack in the north was said to be hatched in Burdillon. Me, I am busy with Atiku.
