The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Thursday made a satirical remarks on the endorsement of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar by his former boss, ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, an indication that the Presidency is scared.
Obasanjo had endorsed ex-Vice-President Atiku Abubakar for the 2019 presidential election, describing him as better than incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.
Abubakar was accompanied to Abeokuta by top members of the opposition party, led by Prince Uche Secondus, national chairman of the PDP.
Others on the visit are the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo; Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah and Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Ahmad Gumi.
While receiving his guests, Obasanjo publicly admitted that he has been having a running battle with the PDP candidate but said he had forgiven him.
But in apparent response to what transpired today in Abeokuta, Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman said any gang up against President Muhammadu Buhari towards the 2019 presidential election will not stand.
“The harder they come, the harder they fall. 2019 presidential election on my mind,” Adesina stated on his Twitter handle, apparently meaning that Buhari will win the 2019 presidential election as all gang ups against him will fall.
