Keyamo Reacts As Labour Party Purportedly Pegs Governorship Forms At N25 Million
The Spokesman of the All Progressives Congres (APC) presidential campaign council, Festus Keyamo, has reacted to reports that the Labour Party (LP) pegged its governorship form for Imo state at N25 million.
Naija News reports that Imo, Kogi, and Bayelsa will have their governorship elections on November 11, 2023, as the tenure of the incumbent Governor of Imo State ends on January 14, 2024, while those of Kogi and Bayelsa States end on January 26, 2024, and February 13, 2024, respectively.
A few days ago, the alleged N25 million for governorship form generated discussions online with some people claiming that LP is becoming part of the corrupt system like other political parties.
Reacting to the news via Twitter, Keyamo said Nigeria dodged a bullet on February 25, stating that LP didn’t take long before the pretensions of the so-called ‘new breeds’ began to unravel.
He wrote: “I understand that the Labour Party’s Governorship forms for IMO State costs N25 million, same as that of the PDP in the last election. It didn’t even take long before the pretensions of the so-called ‘new breeds’ have begun to unravel. Nigerians dodged a bullet on February 25th”
Only Way Atiku, Obi’s Supporters Can Accept Tinubu
Meanwhile, Festus Keyamo, has revealed the only way those who did not vote for the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, can accept him.
Naija News reports that supporters of the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, have continued to reject the declaration of Tinubu as the president-elect.
Also, Obi and Abubakar have approached the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abuja to demand the nullification of the outcome of the February 25 election.
In a tweet via his verified Twitter handle on Sunday, Keyamo said he has come to the conclusion that there is no amount of persuasion that can be made to woo those who did not vote for Tinubu to believe in his administration.
