Atiku also lauded British envoy, Ben Llewellyn-Jones for naming Fani-Kayode among those making inciting comments.
Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) nominee for president, complimented the British ambassador Ben Llewellyn-Jones for identifying Femi Fani-Kayode, the director of new media for the Bola Tinubu Campaign Organization, as one of those making inciting remarks.
Shaibu said that Fani-Kayode’s threat to make Nigeria unruly if Tinubu is not sworn in as president on May 29, 2023, was upsetting and warranted the Department of State Services’ attention.
Atiku’s aide, however, noted that the UK Deputy High Commissioner, Ben Llewellyn-Jones deserves special commendation for pointing out that Fani-Kayode had been making inciting comments and ought to have been cautioned by Tinubu, his boss.
“The DSS rightly invited Fani-Kayode after he made false claims about Atiku planning a coup back in January and asked him to report daily. But for some reason, he has continued unhinged to spew hate. Recently, he even justified the attacks and the profiling of the Igbo in the recently concluded fraudulent governorship election in Lagos State. He has also threatened to make the country ungovernable if Tinubu is not sworn-in.
“I think it’s a good time to remind the DSS that Femi Fani-Kayode has returned to his old ways. Now, he is threatening fire and brimstone over a most contentious election, which Nigerians have refused to endorse or celebrate one full month after the collective disenfranchisement of the electorate.
