Vanguard Newspapers reports that Festus Keyamo, the minister of state for labor and employment, has told Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) candidate for the general elections of 2023, that his “tantrums” are pointless because the US is aware that he lost the election “fair and square,”Continue Reading>>>

Keyamo responded to Obi’s remarks regarding the phone call between Bola Tinubu, the president-elect, and Antony Blinken, the US secretary of state.

Obi asked Blinken to hold off on recognizing Tinubu’s victory until the presidential election petition tribunal has ruled.


In a tweet on Friday, Keyamo said that Obi exaggerated the impact of his and his followers’ “tantrums” on the world.

It’s clear that you and your supporters exaggerated the impact that their clamor and outbursts after the election had on the world. No, they haven’t had the kind of huge impact you’d like,” he replied.


“Unfortunately for you, the US has interacted with numerous opposition individuals around the world and is perfectly capable of distinguishing fact from fiction. They are aware that you were the true loser. They are aware that your message of “religious war” could not have succeeded in a sophisticated society like Nigeria.


“They know you’re simply a splinter of the main opposition, the PDP, so to say you won when you actually finished in third is tantamount to having grandiose delusions.



They are also aware that the winner’s declaration, which INEC has already made official, has legal standing and is the only basis for proceeding with your pending court petition.

You you want this nation to come to a standstill so that your legal case can be heard? Is that what this nation has been doing for decades?

Obi’s “pontifications” on the presidential race, the minister emphasized, are becoming worrying since they are beneath him.
