Media Adviser to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Paul Ibe has fired back at Barrister Festus Keyamo, spokesman of the Buhari Campaign Organisation, for saying his principal, Atiku Abubarker should have been in jail over corruption charges.
Keyamo had in a lengthy statement on Wednesday night 26th December 2018 stated that Atiku is a beneficiary of the slow system in the country, as he would have been sent to jail before May 2015 when Buhari came to power.
Responding to Keyamo’s statement on Thursday in a tweet, Ibe said if Nigeria had a working system, President Muhammadu Buhari would have been killed long ago for overthrowing the democratically elected government of President Shehu Shagari in 1983.
In his tweet, Ibe stated: ”Festus Keyamo should be careful what he brings on himself and APC campaign. If Nigeria had a working system, Muhammadu Buhari should have been executed for overthrowing a democratically elected government in 1983.”
E247 Magazine had reported earlier that Atiku Abubakar fired the first salvo when he blamed Buhari for the slow progress in the fight against corruption.
The PDP presidential candidate was responding to President Buhari’s admission that the fight against corruption in the country has been slow because of the Nigerian system of doing things.
