The spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, Festus Keyamo, has come under attack on social media after posting a campaign rally video on his verified Twitter account.
Naija News reports that the Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), took to the microblogging platform on Sunday night to post a video clip which according to him, was captured at a political march in an unnamed town in Kogi State yesterday.
Keyamo in his caption claimed that the crowd were not borrowed and that every one of the citizens in the rally have their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) ready for the 2023 general elections.
The APC chieftain also in the caption, mocked other parties, saying soon they will separate men from the boys.
Keyamo’s tweet reads: “We showed them how to do a proper march today in just one town in Kogi; no borrowed crowd; everyone here has a PVC (go and verify This is organised by proper ‘structures’, not ‘keypad activists’! Gradually, we shall separate the boys from the men!”.

Naija News reports that Keyamo has been receiving knocks from Nigerians on social media since he posted the video clip.
A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili over the weekend gave reasons why the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi is better than other candidates contesting the 2023 election.
She stated that though Obi has been in politics in the past as well, he represents a breath of fresh air compared to other front runners in the 2023 presidential race.
Naija News reports Ezekwesili made her view known while speaking as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
She submitted that Nigeria is suffering from bad leadership but the former Anambra State Governor represents a ray of hope for the country out of the bad leadership situation.
Ezekwesili said: “somebody says to you between a cast of possible presidents that include the three frontrunners that we currently have – a possible President Tinubu, Atiku, and Obi – do you need anybody to tell you where you would be going? It would be an Obi.”
She added that though Obi also belongs to the political order in the country, he is still way ahead of other presidential candidates set to take part in the 2023 polls.
“Regardless of the fact that he comes from that particular political class that we are talking about, he still at least represents many more shapes than the other two top candidates (Atiku and Tinubu),” she added.
