Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Labor and Employment, has responded to a petition filed by Peter Obi, Labour Party presidential candidate, calling for the annulment of the February 25 Presidential Election, which Bola Tinubu, APC presidential candidate, won.
Obi had previously sought access to all of the sensitive materials the Independent National Electoral Commission used during the election and challenged the election’s outcome in court.
The LP candidate challenged INEC’s declaration that Tinubu “was not duly elected by the majority of the lawful votes cast at the time of the election” in a second suit filed at the election tribunal on Tuesday.
The former governor of Anambra State said that 11 states, including Rivers, Lagos, Taraba, Benue, Adamawa, Imo, Bauchi, Borno, Kaduna, and Plateau, were being rigged. He also said that he would show this in the declaration of results based on the results that were uploaded.
Keyamo posted a response to his petition on Wednesday via his verified handle, stating that the court would bust all deception, lies, and misinformation regarding straightforward issues.
“I am excited about the issues raised in those Election Petitions,” he wrote. Our Law Lords are about to bust all the lies, deception, misinformation, and deception surrounding issues that are otherwise very clear and straightforward. After that, whoever continues to argue should move to another planet.
“Nigerians will finally see a huge difference between all the hoopla caused by garrulous spokespersons shaking and falling on stage, ignorant TV hosts turned debaters, misinformed documentaries, illiterate tweeps, and some dancing Hijabi mamas,” and “Nigerians will finally see a huge difference between calm, dispassionate adjudication of issues.”
