But speaking in a recent video posted on his Facebook page, the spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council (PCC) said his principal “cannot be given the Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola treatment”.
The APC chieftain played down the rumours of a plot to repeat the political treatment meted out against Chief MKO Abiola to pave way for the emergence of Shettima as president after the 2023 general elections.
“Like he (Tinubu) said in his rally (in Lagos), his enemies and his detractors cannot kill him,” Fani-Kayode said.
“We stand on that word. We pronounce it morning, day, and night.
“Asiwaju cannot be given the MKO treatment. Asiwaju cannot be detained, he cannot be locked up, his election cannot be annulled, and neither can he be killed.
“He shall live long and prosper and he shall excel and he shall lead our country in pride and in strength in Jesus’ name.”
