As the 2023 election gathers steam, the spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, Senator Dino Melaye, on Wednesday said he will no longer respond to taunts and attacks by former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode because he is “irrelevant and not in the political scheme of things”.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the duo have been at loggerheads lately over party politics.
The online feud started after the ex-minister had in an article asked the Federal Government and security agencies to take Melaye up on the statement credited to him on the emergence of Iyorchia Ayu as the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Melaye had in a chat with newsmen recently said all the PDP governors spent money at the party’s national convention held in December last year to ensure the emergence of the former Senate president as national chairman.
Fani-Kayode also demanded the disqualification of the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, from the 2023 race.
Reacting, Melaye in a tweet said Fani Kayode’s comments show that he lacks comprehension.
Since then, it has been continuous jibes from both men.
“I will no longer dignify someone who is irrelevant and not in the political scheme of things,” Melaye wrote on his known Twitter handle.
“No more response to statements made under influence.
“I’m 100% focused on the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the colossal failure and calamity they brought upon us.
“We in the PDP through Atiku will rescue Nigeria.”
