The Minister of State for Labour and Employment claimed that Atiku has nothing to offer Nigerians but only hanging onto the achievements of former President Olusegun Obasanjo under whom he served as the Vice President.

Keyamo said Atiku can’t compare himself to Tinubu, who he likened to a driver for eight years, adding that while the PDP candidate answered to Obasanjo for eight years, his principal was in charge of a State at the same time.

Even as Vice President, Keyamo maintained that Atiku was never part of the Obasanjo government as he was disobedient and belligerent.

In a tweet via his Twitter page, Ibe likened Tinubu to a drug baron applying to head an anti-narcotics agency, instead of being in jail.
