‘I’m humbled’ — Keyamo thanks Tinubu for appointing him campaign spokesman
Festus Keyamo has thanked Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Kashim Shettima, his running mate, for appointing him as the spokesman for their campaign organisation.
In a tweet on Friday, Keyamo said he is “humbled” by the appointment.
The minister was the spokesman for the campaign organisation of President Muhammadu Buhari when he sought reelection in 2019.
The lawyer said Tinubu and Shettima have shown that they possess “the uncanny ability to nurture mentees”.
“Special thanks to @officialABAT and @KashimSM for finding me worthy to lead the line in the APC 2023 Presidential Campaign Council as Official Spokesperson,” he tweeted.
“I am humbled because both great leaders have been reputed to possess the uncanny ability to nurture mentees.”
On Thursday, Simon Lalong, governor of Plateau, and Keyamo were named by the ruling party as director-general (DG) and spokesman of the campaign organisation, respectively.
Prior to the announcement by the APC, there had been speculations that the choice of DG was between Lalong and Adams Oshiomhole, former national chairman of the party.
Abdullahi Adamu, APC national chairman, said Keyamo would serve as “interim spokesperson” for the council. (The Cable)
