Buhari told Tinubu to remove Osinbajo’s name from APC campaign council: Keyamo

Buhari, Tinubu, Osinbajo

Festus Keyamo has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari directed that his vice, Yemi Osinbajo, should not be included in the APC presidential campaign council.

This followed reactions that triggered the absence of Mr Osinbajo from the list of the Tinubu/Shettima presidential campaign council.

The vice-president contested the ticket of the All Progressives Congress presidential primary in June against Mr Tinubu, who is presumed to be his political benefactor.

“Nothing can be farther from the facts. For the avoidance of doubt, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, is the Chairman of the Campaign Council. As a result, Mr. President has SPECIFICALLY directed that the Vice-President and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha should be left out of the Campaign Council to concentrate on the governance of the country and administration of Government,” Mr Keyamo said.

The junior labour minister in the Buhari-led regime, who also doubles as the spokesperson for the APC presidential campaign council, revealed this in a statement Saturday.

On Friday, the APC released a list of 422-member Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) ahead of the commencement of the party’s 2023 presidential campaign.

In the list sighted by Peoples Gazette, Mr Buhari is expected to head the campaign council. Mr Osinbajo was the only high-profile member of the ruling APC not listed.

In an attempt to justify the controversial list with the non-inclusion of Mr Osinbajo, Mr Keyamo explained that it would be wrong for all the key functionaries of government in the Buhari regime to abandon their positions for electioneering campaigns.

“Our candidates and the leadership of the APC have also indicated that the list is not sacrosanct as there may be periodic review of it as circumstances dictate.

“We will not toe the path of those who governed the country in an irresponsible manner before us and our Party is not in total disarray like those who wish to ‘rescue’ the country, but cannot simply manage their own internal affairs,” Mr Keyamo added.

Keyamo blasphemously compares Tinubu to Jesus Christ; says Christians should emulate him

Published

Festus Keyamo

Festus Keyamo, the spokesman for the APC presidential campaign has made a blasphemous remark comparing his principal Bola Tinubu to Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity.

In a controversial midnight tweet, Mr Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, said the APC presidential candidate possesses “Christ-like quality” to forgive those who have wronged him in the past.

“The ability of @officialABAT to easily forgive those who’ve betrayed him continues to inspire millions of Nigerians,” Mr Keyamo said. “This is a special Christ-like quality and it’s a reflection of the type of tolerant President he would be. Many shepherds of the faith might do well to emulate him.”

The comparison has sparked disdain among followers who consider it offensive to compare the heavily tainted Lagos politician to the leader of the Christian faith.

A commenter on Twitter, @Ifemanima, said, “Ah! Christlike? Festus O ti ya werey o. Did you just compare Tinubu to Jesus Christ? Well, Jesus does not send Agberos out to oppress poor Nigerians who are clearly below the poverty line.”

“1 John says, Beloved, test every spirit if they are of God because not everyone that use the name of Jesus Christ is of God. It is very insulting to allude our LORD Jesus Christ’ character to that of a Man who is willing to take down anyone against his greed,” @Thelaniyan, another Twitter user reckoned.

Mr Keyamo is no stranger to parroting outlandish and offensive claims in favour of principal. Earlier in the month, he suggested that Nigerians insisting that Mr Tinubu should provide his academic certificates, which he claims are missing, are mad.

Seeking to govern Nigeria from 2023, Mr Tinubu, a former Lagos governor, has been railing against allegations of corruption and ill health.

Peoples Gazette had published a series of damning reports on Mr Tinubu’s corrupt enrichment via questionable Lagos tax administration via Alpha Beta, a company linked to him. The newspaper also uncovered how Mr Tinubu’s Alpha Beta siphoned billions to shell companies.

The APC flag bearer is up against the likes of PDP’s Atiku Abubakar, Labour Party’s Peter Obi in the 2023 presidential election.
