If you are thinking the end is near for one of the Spokesperson of the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential campaign, Festus Keyamo, perish the thoughts. President Muhammadu Buhari has one appraisal for him: “You are doing well.”
According to presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, the president is very pleased with the work being done by Keyamo as the campaign spokesman and has no intention of removing him.
It would be recalled that Keyamo has made gaffe after gaffe which some members of the APC view as demarking the party and the president. Some media outlets (not INFACTNG) had also reported that the president is thinking of removing him.
In a Twitter post, Shehu said the claims were untrue, adding that there are no plans to remove Keyamo as spokesman of the APC presidential campaign.
“The news that President Muhammadu Buhari has called for the removal of Festus Keyamo, SAN, as a spokesperson of the APC Presidential Campaign Council is fake news,” he said.
“Both President Buhari and the Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, are happy with the job Keyamo doing, and with the general setup of the impending campaign, which has already become an example for other parties.
“We [are] aware that conspiracy theories are being hatched with a ripple effect to defame our party leaders and hold back the campaign. Supporters of our candidates should not pay attention to “news” from these fountains of false narratives.”
