Atiku is like a bus conductor applying for driving job – Keyamo



Festus Keyamo, spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, has likened the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, to a bus conductor applying for the job of a driver.

Keyamo, who is Nigeria’s Minister of State for Labour and Employment, said the former Vice President is only hanging onto the achievements of his former boss, ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo.

He stated this via his official Twitter account, wherein he posted a video, saying that Atiku has no achievement to sell to Nigerians.

Keyamo said: “Atiku Abubakar can be likened to a bus conductor applying for ..... of a driver along with another applicant who was a proper driver.

He said in the clip; “There is really nothing to sell, he only hangs on to the achievements of his boss; I said this before, he has never been in charge of any tier of government, and he wants to be president.

“He has never been tested and trusted. Even when he was the Chairman of the Economic Council as Vice president, he was still reporting to a boss.

“There was nothing like Obasanjo-Atiku regime; throughout those eight years, he was disobedient, belligerent, and was never part of the government. So, how do you now compare yourself with somebody who drove the vehicle for eight years?”

Meanwhile, Keyamo, had earlier mocked supporters of Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate.

The Senior Advocate said that the rallies which are being held by Obi’s supporters known as ‘Obidients’ across the country, does not consist of more than 1000 people.

According to him, they allegedly use the marches to get money from motorists and non-supporters of the former Anambra state governor.

He stated this in a series of tweets on Saturday, October 1, 2022 when Obidient rallies held in Akwa Ibom, Edo, Lagos, Delta, Kaduna and Bauchi states.

Keyamo tweeted; ”Bursting their bubble: most of them just came out to use the so-called ‘March’ to ‘rag’ non-obedient and peaceful passersby for money. They don’t give ‘shi shi’, but they want ‘shi shi!’ . Talk of second branch of People Deceiving People!”

He added; ”The aerial shots are the best. Now, look at this: at best the ‘crowd’ here is not more than a thousand people which is approximately just two polling units.”
