An Abuja-based activist, Deji Adeyanju has stated why Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo has been urged to keep promoting the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi ahead of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

According to Adeyanju, Keyamo's decision to promote Obi ahead of his former principal is a strategy to keep dividing the opposition.

He made the remark on Twitter while calling out Dino Melaye for his comment against Keyamo.

“If I’m Keyamo, I will keep saying Obi is more competent that Atiku to annoy Dino and even continue to promote Peter.

“The more APC promotes LP, the more they divide the opposition. They might have plans to fund LP, especially in SE. Politics is very simple to understand.

“Dino is so angry Keyamo said Obi is more competent than Atiku in that interview. Like I said yesterday, it’s a good strategy for APC to keep promoting Peter Obi. In fact, it’s a perfect strategy. It’s a win-win for the APC.”

Recall, Keyamo had stated in an interview on Channels TV that the former Anambra governor was more competent than Atiku.

Angered by Keyamo’s comment, Melaye, said the Minister lacked the moral bearings to attack Atiku.

Melaye challenged the minister to a debate where he vowed to break him (Keyamo) into pieces.
