Festus Keyamo Reacts After Atiku Said Northerners Do Not Need Yoruba Or Igbo Candidates In 2023

The Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress presidential campaign council, Festus Keyamo has reacted to a statement credited to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.

 

It would be recalled that Atiku Abubakar during an interactive session with Arewa Joint Committee in Kaduna state on Saturday, said the average Northerner do not need a Yoruba or Igbo candidate in 2023 but a Northerner who understands what the region is all about.

 

Reacting to the statement made by Atiku Abubakar, Festus Keyamo in a post released on his Twitter handle few hours ago, wondered why loyalists of Atiku Abubakar are trying to place other meanings to what the former vice president said instead of Atiku Abubakar to apologise to Nigerians or step down honourably from the race.

“Some of his hirelings have brought out their hammers & nails to try to panel-beat this clear and obvious statement, instead of taking the route of honour to apologise to Nigerians or step down honourably from the race. No ‘repackaging’ or ‘panel-beating’ will repair this damage” he wrote.
