Former Presidential spokesperson and best-selling author, Reno Omokri has on Tuesday, has said that Nigeria’s Minister for Labour and Productivity, Festus Keyamo, has abandoned governance for politics, even in the light of the lingering ASUU strike.
According to Reno Omokri; “Keyamo’s voice has been purchased. This is a man that is supposed to be Minister of Labour and Productivity. I think they should change the name of the Ministry under him, to ‘Ministry of Labour and Unproductivity’ because we see that he is very unproductive.
“The Number One thing he is supposed to be doing is to handle the ASUU strike. ASUU has been on strike for a record period, for a long period.
“Then here is a Minister who is supposed to be the Minister in charge of ASUU, who is in charge of getting 3.6million Nigerians back to school, and then he has left his ‘place of primary assignment’ to go and be a Spokesman of Bola Tinubu. What could have caused that? That means that his voice has been purchased.”
“ASUU strike right now is probably Nigeria’s Number One emergency, because when you have 3.6million youths at home, they become restive. It is going to lead to insecurity. It is going to lead to depression. A lot of them are going to start being suicidal; and then you have this man whose responsibility is to zero in on the ASUU strike and resolve it. He is left that to go and become the Spokesman of a Presidential candidate. That is to tell you that to Festus Keyamo, politicking is more important than governance,” he further added.
