Atiku Blasts Buhari Over Keyamo’s Attack On Kukah, Gumi, Oyedepo



The Atiku Campaign has faulted the Buhari Campaign’s criticism of the Christian and Islamic clerics that visited President Olusegun Obasanjo with Atiku Abubakar as reflective of the class disrespect for men of God by Buhari’s campaigns’s media spokesman, Festus Keyamo.

The Atiku Campaign also accused Buhari of hypocrisy in saying that he had never sought help for his presidential aspirations as he was referred to efforts he made to curry the support of General Ibrahim Babangida and Chief Olusegun Obasanjo in the period leading to the 2015 Presidential Election.

A statement issued by the Atiku Campaign on Friday read thus:

“We note that the Buhari Campaign Organisation, in their statement, took it upon themselves to also insult the men of God who were present at that event. We are not surprised. After all, Festus Keyamo, the man who signed the statement, was indicted by a young girl who provided video and documentary evidence alleging that he participated in framing up a renowned man of God on false charges. It would seem that attacking men of God is now a full-time occupation of the Buhari Campaign Organisation.”

Among the clerics present at the meeting on Thursday were Bishop Matthew Kukah, Bishop David Oyedipo and Sheik Gumi.

“In trying to paint former President Olusegun Obasanjo as a flip-flopper, the Buhari Campaign Organisation shot itself in the foot.

Their statement says “President Buhari was never reported to have groveled and “begged” anyone for forgiveness, just to be endorsed as a Presidential candidate”.

How true is this? Let the facts speak for themselves.

“In an interview that the then Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) gave to Premium Times on December 24, 2012, Mr. Buhari accused both former President Olusegun Obasanjo and ex military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, of betrayal.

“His exact words were “I felt betrayed by Mr. Babangida” and “I haven’t forgiven Obasanjo”.

Now fast forward to November 13, 2013 and the same Muhammadu Buhari, visited General Babangida, who he had called a traitor, in his home in Minna and praised him to high heavens when seeking his support for his Presidential bid.

“A month later, on December 22, 2013, Mr. Buhari also visited former President Obasanjo, who he had previously savaged, and together with his party leaders, begged Obasanjo to ‘be APC’s navigator’ to victory.

From the above facts, Nigerians can see for themselves who the hypocrite is between Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and Atiku Abubakar on the one side and President Buhari.”
