A statement by Melaye alleged that Fani-Kayode approached a PDP chieftain, Timi Frank, to help him facilitate his recruitment into Atiku’s campaign team.

The spokesman of the Atiku campaign team described the All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain as a serial hustler.

Melaye insisted that Fani-Kayode was seeking attention by delving into the PDP crisis.

He described the former Minister’s time with PDP as a misadventure.

The statement reads partly: “The roller-coaster FFK is merely seeking to receive attention, having employed all forms of ingratiation to be recruited by the Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, but failed.

“To be sure, he contacted Timi Frank to help lobby for a job in the Campaign Directorate, but where is the record to help his desire?

“As a serial hustler around food dispensers, FFK’s misadventure into the issue of the leadership of the PDP is nothing but a subtle campaign to be noticed and rewarded by prospective paymasters.”
