Festus Keyamo, Spokesman of the All Progressives Congress(APC) Presidential Campaign Council has said the endorsement of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)’s Presidential candidate by the regional groups is ‘fraudulent’.
The Middle Belt Forum, Pan-Niger Delta Forum(PANDEF), Ohanaeze Ndigbo, factional Afenifere and the Middle Belt Forum all met at Sheraton Hotel on Sunday, February 3rd, Abuja and endorsed Atiku Abubakar for 2019 Presidency.
Reacting to their endorsements on Politics Today on Channels TV, Keyamo said their move was ‘inconsequential and fraudulent’ because they have no connection with the common man on the street, from their regions.
He challenged the Ayo Fasanmi-led Afenifere to hold a political rally for the PDP in the South West on the same day as the APC’s.
Keyamo said the Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s declaration of support for Atiku because of Peter Obi is an act of playing divisive politics. He said the Yorubas will also throw their weight behind Osinbajo for same reasons cited by the Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
