In an apparent move to focus on the strength of the APC Campaign, Festus Keyamo has urged supporters of the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu presidential aspiration not to get into the fight between the PDP and Labour supporters.
The move by Keyamo, the APC presidential campaign spokesman, follows increasing feisty attacks between some of the leading supporters of Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi.
. reports that Reno Omokri, the UK based assistant of Atiku has over the past weeks continuously attacked Peter Obi calling him a trader, hypocrite among others. The attacks by Omokri are despite his past fervent endorsement of Obi.
On the other hand, one of Mr Obi’s spokesmen, Kenneth Okonkwo, the popular Nollywood actor has not discriminated in damaging Atiku as he has done Bola Tinubu.
. further reports that the PDP is especially at risk from the Obi surge with the Labour Party candidate reducing Atiku to a panting figure in the party’s former strongholds of the Southeast and South-South.
The APC which had initially ignored Obi, believing that he was more of a damage to Atiku few weeks ago also began to feel the Obi heat with polls showing that the Labour Party candidate was also damaging Tinubu in Lagos and among those against the Muslim-Muslim ticket. Those against the Muslim-Muslim ticket who do not see Atiku as an option are also tending towards Obi in the Southwest and Northern minority states.
However, Keyamo has now called on APC and Tinubu’s partisans to pull off from engaging Labour and to rather allow the PDP and Labour Party to fight themselves in a war of mutual destruction.
In a post on Twitter, Keyamo said:
The PDP is trying to cunningly drag APC into their dog fight with LP. Let us leave LP for PDP. LP is PDP’s headache, not ours. Please, BATIST, let them fight themselves to extinction. After they finish fighting and look up, @officialABAT will be already taking his oath of office.
. reports that despite the admonition some senior campaign officials were still fixated in fighting Labour.
Among them were Bayo Onanuga, the former journalist who is director of publicity in the Tinubu Campaign and presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad.
