The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has mocked the G-5 governors of the PDP in an unprecedented fight back since the rift between him and the aggrieved governors erupted in the aftermath of the party’s primary.
Atiku, who seems to have lost his patience with the G-5 governors, led by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers, said that anyone who plans to stop him from becoming president, should first make himself the president of Nigeria.
The former vice president fancied himself as an elephant, who has seen everything, saying that he cannot be taken by surprised by the aggrieved governors.
Atiku, who spoke through his Special Assistant on Public Communication, Phrank Shaibu, noting that any person boasting of having such powers to stop his presidential bid, should first make himself president.
The PDP flagbearer added that he is not losing sleep over plots of the G-5 governors to endorse presidential candidates of their choice.
Shaibu said, “Atiku will be president. Whether the cock crows or not, the sun must rise. Power belongs to God Almighty; no man can arrogate to himself the powers of God Almighty. Any man who can boast of stopping Atiku should first make himself president of Nigeria.
“Atiku is an elephant. Even when an elephant walks on thorns, it does not limp. And when you have seen a snake, it cannot bite you anymore. In this case, we have seen the snake, how can we be taken by surprise?”
