The spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar 2023 presidential campaign, Dino Melaye alleged that the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is contesting to fulfil his “lifetime ambition” and sees the presidency as his “entitlement and retirement benefits”.
Melaye stating this in a video shared on his Facebook page while responding to the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, over his comment on Atiku during an interview on Channels TV.
The former lawmaker said unlike Tinubu, who is contesting to fulfil his “lifetime ambition”, Atiku is contesting with rich credentials.
Melaye, who represented Kogi West Senatorial district in the 8th National Assembly, said Atiku has the rudiments of civil administration and of politics.
“Atiku Abubakar is running for the presidency for the second or third time and he understands this route better than the political virgin, Tinubu, that you (Keyamo) are supporting who is running for the presidency for the first time and sees it as his life entitlement and retirement benefits for supporting Buhari.
“Atiku has rich credentials and he is not running because of entitlements. He is not running because of his support for any party. He is running because he’s got the credentials and he is a team player. He is a talent hunter and leader per excellence. ”
