Former Vice President Abubakar Atiku was in Ekiti to visit governor Ayodele Fayose and consult about his ambition to contest for presidency in 2019 under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

But the business mogul was confronted with questions about his former boss, Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter to President Muhammadu Buhari.

As much as he tried to dodge, he was forced to make comments.

“The letter was a personal issue between two individuals, so I won’t like to comment on it.

“However, the letter confirmed that the APC government under Buhari has failed Nigerians,” Atiku said.

In 2017, Atiku defected from the APC and returned to the PDP, where he served as Vice President to Dr. Obasanjo.

On his visit to Ekiti on Wednesday, Atiku hailed Fayose for his courage and governance skill, saying “he calls the shots and when he does so, we all take the cue".

He added: “Since my return home to PDP this is the first state I am visiting for consultations with party leaders.

“This is not surprising as Fayose and I had struck a good relationship since his first tenure as governor and I was VP. He is blunt and straightforward, a sharpshooter in politics and I respect him for that.

“But above all, he is also the chairman of our governors forum. Today, among the governors, among the party generally, he calls the shots and when he does so, we all take the cue".
