Atiku Abubakar has called out the All Progressive Congress (APC) chieftains Bayo Onanuga and Femi Fani-Kayode for the constant verbal attacks on the Igbos in Lagos state.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate made the statement through his media aide Phrank Shuaibu as seen in the Vanguard, on Monday, March 20, 2023.
The Yourbas and the Igbos have been going at each other during the Governorship and National Assembly election that was held in Lagos on Saturday, March 18, 2023.
And Atiku has condemned ‘inciting’ statements made by Fani-Kayode and Onanuga against the Igbos.
He said: “Bayo Onanuga, a hitherto respected journalist who claimed to have contributed to the fight against dictatorship, is now supporting injustice and attacks on the Igbo for daring to vote in Lagos. This is what happens when you associate yourself with Bola Tinubu. Your mind and soul get corrupted.
“For Fani-Kayode, a man who was Nnamdi Kanu’s handbag, he has suddenly become an ethnic supremacist, encouraging the suppression of the Igbo people in Lagos all in a bid to impress his paymaster We never expected much from this Jekyll and Hyde.
“What the tribal bigots like Bayo Onanuga and Fani-Kayode will not tell you is that Ireti Kingibe, a Yoruba woman, has just been elected into the Senate to represent the FCT.”
