“Buhari has asked for the removal of Festus Keyamo as the party’s campaign spokesperson. The President accused him of always de-marketing his regime, describing the government in which he is a minister as a failed regime. He has been described as a loose cannon who is daily demarketing his regime as a failed regime. The cabal members are not happy,” the source was reported to have said.
Reacting to the news on his verified Twitter handle Keyamo described the news as fake and the height of panic mode they find themselves.
Keyamo said: “Very funny fake news. When people feel uncomfortable with your uncompromising defence of your mandate, they promote such fake news to achieve a purpose. The opposition thinks they can plant stories to destabilise our ranks. This is the height of panic mode they find themselves.”.
