President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media & Publicity, Femi Adesina, has condemned the endorsement of PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, by some organizations.
According to him, even if witches and wizards endorse the presidential hopeful, it would only lead to defeat for him.
Recall that five socio-cultural groups, including the Northern Elders’ Forum, Afenifere, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the Pan Niger Delta Forum and Middle Belt Forum had, on Sunday, endorsed Mr Atiku for the forthcoming presidential candidate.
But, taking to his verified Twitter handle, Mr Adesina, on Monday, tweeted:
Earlier, another presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, in a statement in Abuja had dismissed the position of the groups, saying that the PDP was only hiding under the cloud of ethnicity to avoid its inevitable defeat.
He recalled that the ongoing endorsements were reminiscent of efforts to stop Buhari in 2015 by the same characters, saying that the efforts failed that and that it will also fail this time.
