Femi Fani-Kayode says former vice president Atiku Abubakar stands no chance in the 2023 presidential election against Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello.
“He (Mr Bello) will defeat Atiku hands down,” Mr Fani-Kayode said. “Particularly Atiku Abubakar cannot stand against anybody in the APC, Yahaya Bello or Fashola.”
Mr Fani-Kayode, who before now had berated Mr Bello as a “boy,” a “useful idiot” and “an accursed slave with non-functional mental faculties”, made this statement in an interview with Channels TV on Friday night.
Speaking further, Mr Fani-Kayode said “I believe Yahaya Bello will appeal to million of young people in this country that we are changing the dynamics of giving power to a younger person.”
Since he defected to the APC last year, Mr Fani-Kayode has made efforts to project his new party in good light.
In 2019, Mr Fani-Kayode described the APC as “a filthy, rat-infested sinking ship,” stressing that he would rather die than join the ruling party.
