Vanguard reported that the Tinubu/Shettima presidential campaign organisation tackled the governor on Wednesday, October 26.

But Fani-Kayode, in his reaction to the comment, said the proposition of the Edo state governor is that Nigeria will remain together if Atiku wins.
The former minister stated that Obaseki is free to support whoever he wishes, but to attribute deific status to the former vice president is unfair.
His statement reads in part:
“Atiku is by far the most destructive force that has bedeviled the fourth Republic. Not only did he attempt to destroy President Olusegun Obasanjo and his administration which he served from 1999 till 2007, but he also destroyed the chances of his party the PDP and President Goodluck Jonathan from winning the presidential election in 2015 by his infamous deceit and betrayal.
Has APC reply Dele Momode
Replying to the comment by one of Atiku’s campaign spokespersons, Dele Momodu, who described Tinubu as a dictator, Fani-Kayode said they know who the dictators are.
“Finally to those that say that Bola Tinubu is a dictator I say this: if Tinubu is a dictator then Atiku is a serial political scammer and incredulous schemer who cannot be trusted by anyone and who would sell his soul to the devil for power.
“We know who the dictators are and Asiwaju is not amongst them.”
