2023 polls: “Nobody in history has surpassed Atiku in vote-buying,” APC's Fani-Kayode alleges

Similarly, Femi Fani-Kayode is vexed at PDP's bannerman Atiku Abubakar who urged the CBN not to extend its deadline for the swap of the old naira note.

The APC chieftain said the comments of Atiku were insensitive and does not portray a leader who understands the plight of the people.

He accused the PDP and Atiku of already masterminding plots to buy votes at the forthcoming polls.
