Tinubu Campaign: Buhari wants Keyamo removed for insulting Govt


President Muhammadu Buhari and members of the Aso Rock cabal have called for the removal of Festus Keyamo as the spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress (APC)/Bola Ahmed Tinubu Presidential Campaign Council. 

This is according to SaharaReporters, citing a presidential source. 

The publication said, Buhari and members of the cabal are unhappy with Keyamo over the Minister of State for Labour’s habit of indirectly demarketing the incumbent administration in his capacity as the spokesperson of APC Presidential Council.  

“Buhari has asked for the removal of Festus Keyamo as the party’s campaign spokesperson. The President accused him of always de-marketing his regime, describing the government in which he is a minister as a failed regime. He has been described as a loose cannon who is daily demarketing his regime as a failed regime. The cabal members are not happy,” the paper quoted an unnamed source as saying. 

On Sunday during an interview on Channels Television, Keyamo said Nigerians are hungry and can’t wait to have a new leader who would satisfy their hunger. 

When asked to discuss the APC’s campaign issues for the 2023 elections, Keyamo said, “Nigerians are hungry, they want to see how that hunger will be addressed, not how their Christian faith or Muslim faith will be addressed. 

“They want to see our policies on agriculture and what Asiwaju has done before as governor of Lagos state, how he improved Lagos and how he will bring that kind of dexterity to Nigeria as a whole. 

“That is what they want to see. How do we want to run the country? What do we want to tell Nigerians?” 

The report added that Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha was also of the conviction that Keyamo should be removed following the latest interview on Channels Television.
