Former presidential aide and author, Reno Omokri, has stated that members of President Muhammadu Buhari’s family are abandoning Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2023 general elections.
He spoke in reaction to the defection of the lawmaker representing Daura/Sandamu/Maiadua Federal Constituency in Katsina State, Fatuhu Muhammed, to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Recall that Fatuhu Muhammed had earlier lost his bid to return to the National Assembly through the APC.
The lawmaker, who is President Buhari’s nephew, announced his defection to the PDP on Sunday.
Reacting, Omokri wrote: “This is Fatuhu Muhammed. He is Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew. His father was Buhari’s older brother, from the same father and mother.
“He represents Katsina at the House of Representatives. He just joined the PDP. He is now Atikulate.
“Even Buhari’s family is abandoning the BAT. Whoever says Atiku won’t win in 2023 is lying to you!”
