Twitter users on Monday berated the Director of Strategic Communications and official spokesperson of President Buhari’s re-election bid, Festus Keyamo (SAN), over comments he made on twitter regarding the comments he made concerning the securities challenges in Zamfara.
Keyamo stated this on his twitter handle when he berated supporters of the opposition party stressing that Zamfara people knew that Buhari is a far more “trust worthy candidate”.
He stated: “Those who’re deriding the pple of Zamfara for voting PMB, despite security challenges, are not really shaming them; they’re rather shaming their own Presidential candidate who, in spite of these challenges, was never considered a trustworthy alternative to PMB by the Zamfara people.”
However, followers on his timeline as since stated their own views stressing that the senior advocate should jettisoned politics and face national issues.
