The Director of New Media for the Bola Tinubu/Kashim Shettima Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Femi Fani-Kayode, on Tuesday, said the endorsement of Peter Obi, presidential flag-bearer of the Labour Party, by former Nigerian leader, Olusegun Obasanjo, is “the biggest mistake that he has made ever since he came into politics in 1999”.
Newsbreak.ng reports that in a piece published on his website, Fani-Kayode, a former appointee of Obasanjo, said his ex-boss’ endorsement of Obi is “an exercise in futility”.
“Honestly it pains me when I read what people are saying and writing about him (Obasanjo) since his latest letter because I remain one of his most loyal and loving sons and I am very fond of him.
“Yet a loyal and loving son owes his father, if nothing else, one thing and one thing alone: the bitter truth.
“And that bitter truth is that his endorsement of Peter Obi is the biggest mistake that he has made ever since he came into politics in 1999 and it is nothing but an exercise in futility.
“Obi will not only lose woefully and may well be driven into fourth place but he may also lose his deposit and much more,” Fani-Kayode, a former minister, wrote.
