The spokesperson for Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organization, Senator Dino Melaye, on Saturday took to the cleaners the campaign organisation of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, accusing the group of trying to feast on the crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party.
In a veiled reference to the threat by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State to pull out of the PDP, Melaye said Atiku would not sacrifice those elected by the party just to please autocratic democrats.
According to him, if by chance, he loses the support of some party members on account of adhering to the rules, Atiku will be satisfied that he acted right.
Melaye, a former chairman of Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory, made the observations in a statement titled, ‘No short cut to victory.’
He said, “The hawkers of spin in the camp of Ahmed Bola Tinubu are at it again, this time latching onto a debatable forecast to award victory to a delusional candidate who claimed that the presidency of Nigeria is a categorical entitlement.

“The palace jesters are gloating over the orchestrated amplification of the agitation by some members of our party to sing a dirge, forgetting that advocacy is not only normal in a democracy, their very idol went riotous and danced naked in desperation when he sensed that the ticket of his discredited and failed political party was eluding him.”
“Through a sheer arrogance, impudence and indiscretion, Bayo Onanuga, the mouth piece of the hawkers of illusion took the place of INEC by declaring a loss of election for the most promising flag bearer in the 2023 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar. May the self-acclaimed rivals of God be reminded that power belongs to God?
“In any case, the polemics being celebrated was an indictment against Ahmed Bola Tinubu, who regardless of the status and efforts of APC leaders like Rotimi Amaechi was hawking the senatorial ticket in an insensitive and indecorous manner.”
Describing Atiku as a long standing democrat, Melaye attributed the challenges facing the country to the dominance of strong men over weak institutions.
