Ikimi Bombs Tinubu, Says Too Much Consumption of Things Has Damaged His Brain
A former chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who recently dumped the party and declared readiness to work for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Vjief Tom Ikimi has thrown stones on his former leader, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, calling him a demented brain fellow.
Ikimi who was replying Tinubu over his recent aspersion on him noted that excessive consumption of things may have affected Tinubu. “But I want to clarify that I read the kind of response the leader from Lagos, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, tried to make and I think he has lost it all. For once, I think he has a memory problem and I think the memory problem derives from his excessive consumption of various things”, he stated.
Responding to Tinubu’s claim that he was in the party to sell it, he noted that he was not just a leader of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) but a founding member. Taking Tinubu down memory lane, he refuted claims that he betrayed Moshood Abiola. “Did I need to spend twelve years to create a party in order to sell it? I created the party; I did not join the party. First of all, if he has a good memory, Abiola was in SDP not in NRC. I in NRC cannot betray someone who is in SDP.
Secondly I stopped being chairman of NRC in 1992. Abiola’s election was in 1993. The National Chairman was Dr Hamed Kusamatu who was his own kinsman.
“How can I become the chairman to betray Abiola when I was not Kusamatu? Even if it was NRC, between Kusamatu and me was Mrs Okolu. So there were two other chairmen before me. “Now SDP went to election, the first foreign minister was Baba Gana Kingible who was his running mate. How could I have been the one who betrayed him? I did not join Abacha’s government until 1994. So, tell Bola Tinubu to get his historical facts correct”
“I have heard people talked about Abacha. Who did not work for Abacha? Who was that woman who was carrying market women to demonstrate on behalf of Abacha? So, let be very careful when pointing accusing fingers at others. “I created the PTF. I was adviser, somebody ran the PTF. When the time comes, find out where he is now. Today they are building a lot of projects in Lagos and who is the contractor who is doing it, he is a contractor who used to work with Abacha.”
The former foreign affairs minister stated that he was full of surprises to see the PDP come en masse to welcome him and gave him a grand reception when he stepped down at the Benin Airport.
