President Muhammadu Buhari and the standard-bearer of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu are both pleased with Festus Keyamo’s performance as the spokesperson of the APC Presidential Campaign council, the presidency has assured
The assurance was contained in a statement released by Garba Shehu on Monday, debunking an earlier report spurned by discredited blog, Sahara Reporters, in which President Buhari was alleged to have demanded Keyamo’s replacement for purportedly ‘demarketing the administration’.
Garba Shehu said “The news that President Muhammadu Buhari has called for the removal of Festus Keyamo, SAN as a spokesperson of the APC Presidential Campaign Council is fake news.”
“Both President Buhari and the Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu are happy with the job Keyamo doing, and with the general set up of the impending campaign, which has already become an example for other parties.”
“We aware that conspiracy theories are being hatched with a ripple effect to defame our party leaders and hold back the campaign. Supporters of our candidates should not pay attention to “news” from these fountains of false narratives.”
Festus Keyamo, also the Minister of State for Labor and Employment, has articulated the achievements of the APC and made a case for the election of Bola Tinubu, highlighting his achievements as former Governor and contributions to the country’s democracy.
The now debunked report of his purported replacement floated by Sahara Reporters adds to the infamy of the blog which has been dismissed by media professionals as “a cesspit of falsehood and a political blackmail tool of unprincipled rascals.”
