Tinubu/Shettima ticket: Gani Fawehinmi will be highly disappointed in Keyamo – Onuesoke
A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain and former Delta State governorship aspirant, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has reacted to a recent statement credited to Minister of Labour and Employment (State), Festus Keyamo (SAN) on Bola Tinubu being the best presidential candidate based on his antecedents.
Recall that Keyamo, while speaking as the Media Director, Tinubu Presidential Campaign Council during an interview on Channels Television programme, Politics Today, had said Bola Tinubu is the best among the Presidential candidates and easiest to market to Nigerians.
He added that nobody comes close to Tinubu’s record when it comes to public service in the last 23 years. He equally said if elected, Tinubu will continue with the record of Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Reacting to Keyamo’s statement while addressing aviation correspondents at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, Onuesoke said it is disappointing that an erudite lawyer like Keyamo who once worked with human rights lawyer in person of Late Gani Fawehinmi in the years 1999/2000 is supporting Bola Tinubu’s presidential candidacy.
Querying Keyamo on why he felt Tinubu is the best presidential candidate, Onuesoke asked, “How is Tinubu the best candidate? Did Tinubu win any award as best candidate like others or are you promoting what they wrote and gave to you?
“What Keyamo should understand is that Nigeria is not Lagos. Even in Lagos and other western states, Tinubu had lost a majority of his loyalists because they have discovered that APC is living in deceit. Tinubu presidency will destroy Nigeria further. They promised heaven and earth to Nigerians. Where are the benefits they promised? Rather everything has worsened under their watch,” he stated.
The PDP chieftain urged Nigerians to shun Keyamo’s deceit, alleging that APC as a party has absolutely nothing to offer Nigerians except poverty, bad economy and insecurity.
“They have absolutely nothing to offer Nigerians except poverty, bad economy and insecurity. These people continue in self-deceit and unrealistic ‘positive’ speaking. They keep telling us how good Buhari has been in the face of gross insecurity, abject poverty and massive deaths caused by ineffective governance. The defeat of Oyetola of Osun State to Davido’s uncle, Adeleke is a good example of what awaits them in 2023,” he stated.
The PDP Chieftain urged Nigeria electorates to save their future and that of their children by voting wisely in the forthcoming presidential election, stressing that having APC continue in power beyond May 2023 will be catastrophic.
“Let us save our future and that of our children by voting wisely in 2023. Another eight years in the hands of APC politicians is just unthinkable,” Onuesoke advised.
