Senator Dino Melaye has slammed Festus Keyamo over his comment stating that PDP’s presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar is no match for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu.
The Labour and Employment minister and spokesperson of the Tinubu campaign organisation, Festus Kayamo had recently claimed Atiku does not have the experience to lead Nigeria and that the Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi is even way ahead of him in the race for the country’s number one seat.
But speaking in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday, Senator Melaye, who is the spokesperson of the Atiku campaign council, berated the APC for Promoting Tinubu.
“This government marketed Atiku by their colossal failure. Today, the most difficult candidate to sell is an APC candidate whether, at the House of Representatives, Senate, or governorship level,” the lawmaker said during the show.
“That is why you cannot defend, promote or campaign for Bola Ahmed Tinubu without looking stupid. This is what happened to my brother and friend, Festus Keyamo, he started talking off point. He started saying things that do not make sense.”
