The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the leaked audio tapes of Rotimi Amaechi on the state of the nation, and he described the move as courageous.
Atiku, in a statement yesterday by his Special Assistant on Public Communication, Phrank Shaibu, urged Amaechi to resign his appointment and return to the PDP.
Atiku decried what he called the shabby treatment of Amaechi for speaking truth to power in a leaked audio tape which led to his “being made a ceremonial Director General of the president’s re-election campaign organization.
“We dare say that the cold war between the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Mr. Rotimi Amaechi as well as the statements credited to the latter in a leaked tape which led to the appointment of Tinubu to take charge of the campaigns are at the least a national embarrassment to the nation. Amaechi must now resign and return home to the PDP where he belongs.””
