Femi Fani-Kayode has come out to condemn Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed for their comments and actions regarding the outcome of the presidential election on February 25th.
KOKO reports that Obi and Yusuf Datti have maintained their position in rejecting Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s declaration as the winner of the 2023 presidential election.
The Labour Party (LP) Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates have claimed that the 2023 election was marred by irregularities and that they will seek to reclaim their mandate in court.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the February 25th election, ahead of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Obi finished third in the competition. However, the two opposition parties have filed a legal challenge to the election results.
Reacting to Obi and Datti’s actions in the aftermath of the 2023 general elections, Fani-Kayode on Friday said;
Amongst the most dangerous people in Nigerian politics today are Peter Obi and Dati Baba Ahmed, with their army of ignorant, fascist, violent, uncouth, frustrated, garrulous, racist, bigoted, misguided, radical, brash and rebellious supporters.
The APC chieftain said he heard the Labour Party’s vice presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, warn President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Olukayode Ariwoola, not to allow Tinubu to be sworn in because “lives would be endangered and the military would intervene.”
“Swearing in Tinubu is the same as inviting the military to take power,” Fani-Kayode quoted Yusuf Datti as saying on Channels Television.
He also quoted the Labour Party vice presidential candidate as saying that he would never accept Tinubu as President, that he had no faith in the courts or election tribunals, that the President was incompetent, that the INEC Chairman had conducted a sham election and was arrogant, and that the President-elect was a Pablo Escobar and Mayer Lansky-like drug baron rolled into one and the father of organized crime in Nigeria.
