Following the questionable political roles of Minister of State for Labour, Festus Keyamo, over the declaration of the All Progressives Congress candidate for the February 25th, 2023 presidential election in Nigeria, Senator Bola Tinubu as the winner of the exercise, different concerned citizens in the diaspora have expressed interest in the biased results of the poll by the INEC.
Keyemo who has been playing in defence of the Bola Tinubu and the APC has challenged anyone who is displeased with the results of the general polls, to go to court.
Reacting, a Catholic priest, Reverend Fr. Kelvin Ugwu has described the Minister, Keyamo differently.
According to Fr. Ugwu, “He, Keyamo first started with emotional blackmail, he said one who cannot handle defeat does not deserve victory. To this, he told Obi to play the “hero” like GEJ, and call Tinubu to congratulate him so that peace will reign.
“When he discovered that such silly lines do not work and that “peace cannot be built on a faulty foundation”, he then challenged anyone who is not satisfied with the result to go to court.
“Now that the case is going to be decided by the court, and the truth is coming out even before the court proceeding begins, INEC is scared and seeking an order to reconfigure the BVAS, Keyamo has shifted from “go to court” to accusing Obi of rigging Southeast elections.
“The question is: if you accept that southeast was rigged, why did you accept the result that announced Tinubu as the winner? Was Obi not right when he said “If you must be referred to as ‘Your Excellency’, then the process through which you arrived in office Must be excellent”?
“Why are you against conducting fresh elections since the results in the east and even Lagos was manipulated by Obi? Why are you against the removal of the INEC chairman?
Instead of accepting that they are afraid of what is coming, they now resort to argumentum ad hominem. And this is coming from a Senior Advocate of No-sense, sorry, Nigeria. What a big shame!
“Dear friends, in this life ehn, just be upright…just make effort to always do the right thing. When you have nothing to fear, you walk tall; even God will fight for you. Don’t listen to people asking you to cut corners or join the bandwagon. Remain yourself, remain sincere.
“May Tinubu and all those who helped him to manipulate and rigged February 25th Presidential elections, be totally exposed, disgraced, humiliated, and their legacies (if any) destroyed. Amen!
“May the will of the Nigerian people triumph over the evil ones holding the country down. Amen!”.
