Keyamo Mocks PDP Over Wike’s Absence At Atiku’s Campaign Rally

The Spokesperson of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, on Monday night, said Nigerians should see the absence of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, four other governors and some members of the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party at the official launch of PDP’s presidential campaign in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, as a warning signal.

This is even as the Minister of State for Labour and Employment disclosed that he found the presence of the embattled National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, on the podium promising the PDP will change the fortune of the country a huge joke.

Keyamo made the statement in a release issued on Monday night.

The governors, ex-governors, and top chieftains of the PDP in the camp of the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, and his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa, had arrived in Uyo in no fewer than 15 private and chartered jets for the formal inauguration of the party’s campaign ahead of the 2023 poll.

Asides from Wike and his counterparts in Oyo State (Seyi Makinde), Benue State (Samuel Ortom), Abia State (Ikpeazu Okezie), and Enugu State (Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi), other governors elected on the platform of the party were present at the event.

Members of the PDP Board of Trustees, led by a former senate president, Chief Adolphus Wabara, were also present at the venue.

But Keyamo believed the launch of the presidential campaign was a disaster waiting to happen, saying the opposition party had continued to treat the Nigerian public with disdain and disrespect.

He said, “When you have a flag-off campaign that is shunned by the national vice-chairmen of the South-South, South-West, and five sitting governors out of thirteen, that is a definitive and resounding red-flag that Nigerians should not vote the presidential candidate of the PDP in this coming election.

“If the people’s representatives at the state levels are so unanimously against their party’s candidate that they would shun his campaign launch, then indeed, we would say to Nigerians, A word is enough for the wise.
