The spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, Daniel Bwala, said the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, once claimed that Bola Tinubu was not qualified to be the Governor of Lagos State.

Naija News reports that Bwala made this known during a programme on Channels Television, Political Paradigm, on Tuesday.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain disclosed that Keyamo had sued the Lagos Assembly in 2002 over Tinubu’s position as the then governor of Lagos State.

He said Keyamo, who was recently appointed as the spokesman of the Bola Tinubu Campaign Organisation, was the appellant in the then case.

Bwala, however, cited a law report titled Keyamo V. House Of Assembly, Lagos State (2002)18 NWLR (Pt. 799)605 to prove his claim.

He said: “This is the Supreme Court decision in the case I have cited and I will just read a line: The appellant alleged amongst others as a legal practitioner that he has been confronted by some of his clients who wanted to understand certain things they consider important relating to their contesting the governorship in Lagos State.

“He further, that is Festus Keyamo, alleged certificate forgery against the Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and that the latter was not qualified for the office of the governor.
