Osita Okechukwu has said that Atiku Abubakar’s move to reconcile with Governor Nyesom Wike’s group in the Peoples Democratic Party is belated.
The Director-General of Voice of Nigeria said this when he responded to a statement by Atiku that the ruling All Progressives Congress was a contraption of Bola Tinubu’s party, Action Congress of Nigeria, and the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)’s party, the Congress for Progressive Change, which, according to him, would collapse after its defeat in the 2023 general election, and that he would reconcile with Wike-G-5-Masquerade.
In a statement in Abuja titled, “Atiku’s attempt to reconcile with Wike-G-5 -Masquerade is belated by headwinds”, the APC chieftain described the assertion made by the former Vice President as hallucination and medicine after death.
According to him, it was ridiculous for the presidential candidate of the PDP to think that the plank of justice of rotation convention meted to PDP’s Constitution and the Federal Character principle of the 1999 Constitution would be easily swept under the carpet.
Referring to the recent meeting of the Wike-G-5 Masquerade with Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, Okechukwu posited that the virile letter Bala wrote to Atiku penultimate week questioned the integrity of the former Vice President.
“How can he wage a proxy political war against the Bauchi governor? News filtered that Atiku questioned his temerity not to step down like Governor Aminu Tambuwal. This is one of the headwinds which will make reconciliation impossible.
“Thus the movement of the Wike-G-5-Masquerade northwards is afloat, obviously sounding the death knell for Atiku’s ambition.
“Methinks Wike-G-5-Masquerade, which is frantically chasing Atiku because of his infidelity to the south and the PDP constitution, which is the breach of power rotation between north and south; is driving him into a state of delusion. For the other day, in Arewa Summit, he admonished the north not to vote for Yoruba or Igbo, an unpresidential goof and, in the present instance, distorting the genesis and capacity of the APC.”
Okechukwu said that lacking the pragmatism to ease out Iyorchia Ayu as the PDP chairman in line with his serial promise to Wike-G-5-Masquerade cast Atiku’s integrity, necessary dexterity and know-how to unite this country in serious doubt.
“Ironically, whilst Atiku is de-marketing the APC as if he has no baggage, the Wike-G-5’s masquerade is extending its fangs northwards the unintended consequence is definitely erosion of Atiku’s victory.
“If Atiku cannot unite his party, curb Peter Obi’s widespread erosion of PDP’s support base nationwide and design how to pick the remaining votes from Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso’s dominance in Kano, how can he win?” he added.
Okechukwu dismissed as deceptive Atiku’s late attempt to mend fences with Wike-G-5-Masquerade via General Ibrahim Babangida (retd.) and other retired generals of the PDP’s hue. He remarked that the puerile effort amounts to medicine after death.
“The Wike-G-5-Masquerade had bolted. The so-called reconciliation is a kind of medicine after death, because it is said that there is no repentance in the grave. I doubt that the Wike I know will recruit 200,000 Special Assistants for Atiku’s victory. The Wike-G-5-Masquerade are aware and experienced enough to appreciate the dangers of the Daggers-Syndrome.
“In the parlance of Italian Mafia, you cannot pull the Dagger or Pistol and put it back in the holster. You must shoot or you are killed. They know the Atiku’s DNA-Vengeance like most politicians is of high degree. He will never forgive them if he wins. And Nigerian patriots will not forgive Wike-G-5 for pardoning a desperate politician that selfishly breached rotation convention.”
