Festus Keyamo and Peter Obi
Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, Festus Keyamo has opened up on why he petitioned Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate to the DSS.
The Minister of State for Labour accused the Labour Party (LP) of “riling up” Nigerians against the judiciary.
Keyamo made these claims while speaking in an interview with Channels Television on Thursday.
On Wednesday, the vice-presidential candidate of the LP, Datti Baba-Ahmed, insisted that the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, didn’t meet the constitutional requirements to win the February 25 election.
Earlier on Thursday, Keyamo petitioned the Department of State Services (DSS) over Obi’s comments, which he described as inciting and capable of disrupting law and order in the country.
“If I don’t say go to court, the next thing I will say is that come let’s fight. Why are they using such sentences in a derogatory manner?
“It is what is provided by law and people have actually retrieved their mandate by going to court. It is only when it does not favour you.
“That is what the LP is doing. That is why I have to petition them to the DSS,” Keyamo said.
