Festus Keyamo Tackles Obasanjo Over Rejecting INEC Results, Says It's Because Peter Obi Failed

The Director of Public Affairs and Chief Spokesperson, Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, and Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN), have replied to the letter former President Olusegun Obasanjo wrote to Buhari concerning the results of the just-concluded presidential elections across the federation.

Recall that the former president wrote an open letter on Monday to President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu, alleging that the electoral process was manipulated by officials of the commission and that this was brewing contempt and may cause civil unrest.

Reacting to the letter the former octogenarian president wrote, Festus Keyamo countered, adding that Obasanjo was calling for a supplementary election based on the bias that the presidential candidate he previously endorsed (Peter Obi of the Labour Party) didn't emerge victorious.

According to the tweet on Festus Keyamo's timeline, "So says a partisan statesman who endorsed a failed candidate." He lost all moral right to advise on the elections the day he became a campaign spokesman. He is not different from those who walked out of the ICC today, making him a "Junior States Child" not capable of advising anyone.
