Dino Melaye, spokesperson of the Atiku presidential campaign, has challenged Festus Keyamo, the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign council spokesperson, to drive from Abuja to Kaduna without a security escort.
Recall that Keyamo had said he can drive solo from Abuja to Kaduna.
He made the comment on Tuesday in a pre-recorded interview aired on Channels TV.
Responding on Wednesday while appearing on TrustTv’s Daily Politics, Melaye said Keyamo should take up the challenge.
“Coming to the statement by Keyamo, I challenge Keyamo to carry his car and start his journey to Kaduna from Zuba ( Abuja). No police escort and no convoy following him,” Melaye said.
“He should drive even by 6am from Abuja to Kaduna. I challenge him to do it.
“Or drive from here to Delta where he comes from without police escort or any backup since he said the road is safe. Let him drive and prove to Nigerians that the road is safe. There was still an incident on that road two days ago.”
The Kaduna-Abuja highway is one of the most feared roads in the country, owing to repeated attacks by bandits.
