The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo SAN, has knocked some of the opposition parties, contending against the result of the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.
The All Progressives Party Chieftain, threw this jab at them while commenting on the meeting that took place between the candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso and the President-elect, Bola Tinubu in Paris, France, on Tuesday.
According to him, some of the patriotic Nigerians who want unity and progress of the country, have put politics behind them, and stretching their hand of support to Tinubu, for the betterment of Nigeria.
He explained that while the patriotic ones are teaming up to develop the country, those who are still bitter concerning the unexpected presidential victory of Tinubu, are still throwing tantrums, noting that another defeat is awaiting them in 2027.
The minister, who commended Kwankwaso’s spirit, said the former Kano governor had forged ahead, leaving issues to the past and already working for the future.
Keyamo, who reacted to the meeting through a Twitter post on Tuesday, said Kwankwaso is among the real patriots looking forward to collaborating with Tinubu’s administration for nation-building.
According to him, the possibility of an alliance between the NNPP and the ruling APC may be achieved ahead of the 2027 election.
“Whilst real patriots are already looking forward to collaborating for nation-building and MAY already be forging alliances ahead of 2027, some nattering nitwits are still stuck in the past, throwing tantrums here and there and will continue to do so till 2027, to the extent that when they are defeated again they will start looking for fake results inside IREV,” he wrote.
The former Kano governor had met Tinubu in France on Tuesday, and they held a 4-hour meeting on politics, the state of the nation, and the incoming administration.
