Tinubu’s allies reached out to me, and they know Obi won, so shut up’ – Ex-SGF Lawal knock APC errand boy Morka
A former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, has slammed the All-Progressives Congress (APC) spokesman, Felix Morka, over a comment on his statement on Tuesday claiming that Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, won the 2023 presidential election.
Morka, had on Tuesday night, while responding to Lawal’s outburst, described him as incapable of rational thought.
In a statement on Wednesday, Lawal offered his sympathies to Morka, saying he was doing the job of an enslaved person and desperate to please his masters.
Describing APC as an Islamic party which takes decisions during their prayers where Morka is not present, Lawal insisted that Peter Obi won the last election, stressing that ‘The thief knows who stole the item’.
The former SGF further described Morka as a remote outsider in APC, adding that some key allies of President Bola Tinubu’s administration have contacted him regarding his statement on the 2023 election.
The statement, which was titled, ‘Political Discourse: The APC reaction and its castigation of my person’, reads, “I woke up this morning to a very pathetic social media trending write-up apparently, a response to my article on the current political discourse by one Felix allegedly of the APC.
“I suspect he was assigned this role because it is in the nature of sycophants and people consigned to second-class status to be assigned roles that their masters are wary of taking on.
“Usually, the dirty, unsavoury jobs are contracted out to such. I really do sympathize with a Christian (or is he not?) who finds himself in an Islamic party and is desperate to please his masters and probably to be noticed when the next round of political appointments comes.
“And talking of electoral value, both the National Chairman and the National Secretary just dramatically lost in the election. I suspect Mallam Felix didn’t do well in his own constituency, either. It is based on these considerations that I pity a Christian who finds himself in the position of a spokesperson of an Islamic party. Mark my words, all critical decisions will be taken behind his back during the afternoon prayer sessions, which he will be unable to attend.
“Mallam Felix, your masters got the message loud and clear because some of them have reached out to me for dialogue on the issues raised. But in line with your lower status in the scheme of things you are not aware that all the issues I raised were designed in a manner to deliver a message to a discomfited government that is populated by longstanding friends of mine who appear to have abandoned common sense and patriotism for unbridled personal goals and filthy lucre. And they got the message, which you cannot. In this discourse, you are a remote outsider, so shut up.
“I hold firmly to my assertion that Peter Obi had the majority votes in the May 23 presidential election. That was why both INEC and APC had to go rogue in the election; and they know this fact even if they will not admit it. After all, the thief knows who stole the item. You have my sympathy.”
