Festus Keyamo, the spokesman of the campaign organization for the 2019 bid of President Muhammadu Buhari, has addressed those referring to his principal as Northern/Muslim jihadist. Keyamo, writing on his Twitter page, said that those who thought that President Buhari in 2015 was a Northern/Muslim jihadist were scammed. According to him, the greatest scam on Nigerians as 2019 election is approaching is that ‘Southern/Christian warriors’ are now searching for a Northern/Muslim candidate for 2019′.
Keyamo tweeted: “It flies in the face of logic for anyone to suggest that a President who took decisive actions against two ‘extremists’ Muslim groups (Boko Haram & the Shiites – as some see them) is a Northern/Muslim jihadist. The politicians who told you so are laughing at you behind closed doors. “By now, it must be obvious to those who campaigned against PMB in 2015 on the assumption that he’s a Northern/Muslim jihadist that they were scammed. “But the greatest scam now is that these ‘Southern/Christian warriors’ are now searching for a Northern/Muslim candidate for 2019.”
Keyamo further said Senator Godswill Akpabio’s defection to the All Progressives Congress, APC, has damaged the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s 2019 strategy. He stressed that PDP will end up putting up a Northern-Muslim candidate in 2019. “The defection of Akpabio has dented the crude anti-North/ Muslim sentiments and lies by which the PDP has continued to hold the South/South and South/East to ransom since 2015. “That strategy will soon collapse entirely as they will also put a Northern Muslim on the ballot in 2019,” he added.
