Keyamo Reacts To Reports Of Tribal Attacks At The Governorship Election

Millions of Nigerians came out to vote on Saturday the 18th of March at the governoship and state house of assembly election. However, there are several reports of tribal attacks as people from a particular region of the country were not allowed to vote at several polling units in Lagos.

These reports rekindled the tribal debate and sentiments as it stirred dozens of mixed reactions across social media.

Reacting to this development, a spokesman of the APC, Festus Keyamo stated in a tweet that he's against the idea of tribalism in politics. He revealed that he's a product of different regions of Nigeria and he's never been in support of tribal politics or promoted it in their campaigns.

His tweet reads;

"I TOTALLY deplore tribal politics. I am a product of different regions of Nigeria. I’ve NEVER in my life written or promoted one tribe over another, even in campaigns. No one should ever rile a whole tribe & this applies to all sides - North/South/East/West in Nigeria’s politics."
