The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN) has come under heavy criticism online, for proudly promoting a video of Tony Kabaka.
Naija News recalls that Tony kabaka is a famous political enforcer in Edo State.
Keyamo, who doubles as the spokesman for All Progressives Congress (APC) 2023 Presidential Campaign Council took to his Twitter page to share a video of Kabaka alongside the female ‘bishop’, present at Shettima’s unveiling and other people, campaigning for the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Keyamo captioned the video: When the jungle matures, we shall turn their mockery into songs of victory!!! We are getting ready!! Edo for @officialABAT
However, many Nigerians stormed his page, attacking him for promoting the controversial figure online while some claimed that using Kabaka for frontline campaign in Edo State may be wrong for APC because he cannot speak on behalf of the people.
