Fayose tells Atiku to accept defeat and retire peacefully to Dubai
Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has asked the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to accept defeat.
Dateline Nigeria reports that collation of results for the presidential election is still ongoing.
Fayose, a PDP chieftain, made the call in a tweet on Monday night. He asked the former vice president to concede and retire to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
He wrote, “Our candidate, H.E. Atiku Abubakar (aka ‘Atiku is coming’) should accept defeat in maturity and retire peacefully to Dubai.
“Therefore, no sense of comradeship with Obi will work. After all, they knew his potentials, yet, he was not deemed fit for the party’s ticket and he was eased out. Today, he has retired all of them.
“The present managers of the PDP need to be told that the sympathy of Nigerians is not for the party. They should stop hiding under Peter Obi’s LP to pretend to have a sense of patriotism that they don’t have,” he said
