Datti trying to pull down democracy because he and Obi lost election— Fani-Kayode


Femi Fani-Kayode, new media director of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, says Datti Baba-Ahmed, running mate to Peter Obi, candidate of the Labour Party (LP), is trying to “pull down democracy” because they lost the election.


Fani-Kayode was reacting to comments by Baba-Ahmed in which he had said swearing in Bola Tinubu, president-elect, is “ending democracy” and a clear violation of the constitution.


In a tweet on Thursday, Fani-Kayode said if Baba-Ahmed believed the election was rigged, he should present evidence before the tribunal.

“Are we supposed to all keep quiet whilst he incites the people against the entire system and seeks to pull down our democracy simply because he and his principal lost?” he tweeted.


“Does he think we are scared of him and his co-conspirators and that we can be intimidated by his threats and childish outbursts?


“If he believes the elections were rigged or that INEC was compromised, let him produce the evidence before a court of law and let that court decide.


“Surely he cannot be the accuser, jury, and judge in his own case. He is not a court and he is not a judge. His interpretation of the constitution cannot be the only one or the final one. Such matters are the exclusive preserve of the courts.


 “And neither can he threaten or attempt to intimidate the President of our country and the Chief Justice of the Federation or the Judiciary and get away with it.


“What he did on Channels Television last night was dangerous and despicable and he must be invited by the DSS too to explain himself.


“What is good for the goose is good for the gander. I appeared before the DSS and cleared myself just before the election. Why can’t Dati do the same? Is he above the law? Who does he think he is?”
