Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Former Minister of Aviation and Director General, Media and Publicity of the People’s Democratic Party in the 2015 general election, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has opened up on why the People’s Democratic Party lost to the then opposition All Progressives Congress party in the 2015 general election.
Fani Kayode said the defeat suffered by President Goodluck Jonathan was as a result of the betrayal the party suffered in the hands of then Chairman of People’s Democratic Party, Alhaji Adamu Muazu on one hand, and the collaboration of Prof Attahiru Jega, Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with President Muhammadu Buhari, on the other.
The former Minister of Culture and Tourism stressed that the biggest secret and greatest traitor to President Jonathan’s defeat was Hassan Tukur, the man that brought both Muazu and Jega to do the dirty job and sabotage the effort of PDP.
Fani-Kayode who described Hassan Tukur as an evil genius, said it was Tukur’s treachery and collusion with the APC that cost the PDP the 2015 election and opened the door for President Buhari. He however said that God will judge Tukur.
The former PDP Campaign DG disclosed this in series of twit on his twitter handle @realFFK Wednesday 26, 2017.
According to Fani-Kayode on his twitter handle @realFFK, “That Mauzu betrayed us during the 2015 pres. campaign and that Jega was working for @MBuhari is not news. The biggest secret and greatest traitor of them all was the man that brought both Mauzu and Jega to do a dirty job and sabotage our efforts. His name was Hassan Tukur. He is an evil genius. His treachery and collusion with the APC cost us the 2015 election and opened the door for Buhari. God will judge him.”
Sundiata Post recalls that former President Goodluck Jonathan appointed Alhaji Ahmed Adamu Mu’azu as the Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party in January 2014 ahead of the 2015 general election. Mu’azu was appointed to replace Alhaji Bamanga Tukur whose tenure was cut short with accusations of high-handedness among others.
