Tinubu-G5 Alliance: Atiku’s ‘Delusion’ For Presidency Win Will End Soon – Fani-Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation, has reacted to the alliance between the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu and the five aggrieved governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Fani-Kayode, who is the Director of New Media of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, in a series of tweets via his Twitter page on Friday, confirmed the alliance while stating that Tinubu’s support will end the presidential quest of the PDP’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Fani-Kayode said Atiku’s supporters base their winning confidence on the premise that Northern APC governors and President Muhammadu Buhari will betray Tinubu at the last minute.

He added that supporters of the PDP flagbearer also believe that the Northern governors are so unpopular in their various and respective states that they will not be able to carry their people along.

He countered, noting that not only will the Northern APC governors and President Buhari support Tinubu, they will also carry their people along in electing the APC standard bearer in 2023.

The APC chieftain described the PDP as a party of arrogant, boastful, delusional, ungrateful and relentless backstabbers who are incapable of honoring their word and never rewarding loyalty.

He wrote: “The declaration of support that @officialABAT will get from 6 (not just 5) Governors from the @OfficialPDPNig this January will finally put to rest the pitiful delusion that @atiku stubbornly harbours about winning the 2023 presidential election. His eyes will soon clear.

“Those that still suffer from the illusion that he will win the election base their confidence & hope on two premises. Firstly that the Northern Governors and @MBuhari 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, barren hopes & 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 & overwhelming manner.

“Unlike PDP, APC is not a party of arrogant, boastful, delusional, ungrateful & relentless backstabbers, traitors, bigots, hegemonists & 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 & indeed all over the country will sweep away all doubts, secure him a resounding victory, cement our national unity, make Nigeria whole again & usher in a new & refreshing era of hope, security, progress & prosperity.” He tweeted.

Information Nigeria earlier reported that Tinubu met with the five aggrieved PDP governors, popularly called G5, in London, the United Kingdom on Tuesday to lobby for their endorsement.

The governors allegedly demanded Tinubu’s support for the PDP governorship and senatorial candidates in their respective states, a demand the APC flagbearer could not grant immediately as he needed to consult with his team.

The five governors were concerned about their political careers and sought assurances from Tinubu if elected as President in 2023.

However, after their meeting in London, the governors are expected to conclude on a preferred candidate before making their choice public in January 2023.
