Femi Fani-Kayode said there are groups of PDP sympathizers in certain Nigerian institutions scheming for the interest of Atiku Abubakar but they will not prevail.
The Director of New Media for the APC presidential campaign made the statement on Sunday while reacting to the extension of the deadline for the submission of old naira notes.
Fani-Kayode noted that the extension showed that Bola Tinubu’s comments in Abeokuta were appropriate.
The former minister said: “The President has ordered the deadline for the submission of old naira notes to be extended by 2 weeks. This will lessen the tension and pain of the people and strengthen the democratic process and the legitimacy of the coming election. This proves that Asiwaju’s comments in Abeokuta were appropriate and our collective warnings were taken seriously.
Thankfully we have a listening and receptive President who had the courage to direct the CBN Governor and those that are behind him to do the right thing.
The APC cannot be divided or defeated by a group of PDP sympathizers embedded in certain institutions in the system fighting for the interest of Atiku and his carpet baggers, crooked business partners and goons.”
Fani-Kayode reiterated that the cat is out of the bag and saboteurs who want to scuttle the 2023 general elections will soon be exposed.
“Nigeria will never fall back into the clutches of the PDP and Asiwaju will be our next President whether you like it or not,” the ex-minister added.
The presidential candidate of APC, Bola Tinubu, had alleged that the current fuel scarcity being experienced in the country and the redesigning of the naira are grand plans by saboteurs to scuttle the 2023 general elections.
Tinubu stated this on Wednesday at the APC presidential campaign rally in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The APC candidate, however, met with President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday night.
Details of the meeting were not revealed but on Sunday, President Buhari ordered the deadline for the submission of old naira notes to be extended for two weeks.
