Festus Keyamo, the minister of state for labor and employment, has made fun of the Peoples Democratic Party due to the crisis that is tearing the organization apart.
Keyamo asserted that despite the party’s ongoing daily appearances and declarations of its intention to save Nigeria, it had lost control.
The spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council disparaged the PDP in a late-night tweet on Wednesday.
This took place after the administration of Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike left the PDP Presidential Campaign Council on Wednesday. They argued that before they could start running for office, Iyorchia Ayu, the party’s national head, had to resign.
Keyamo questioned how the PDP and Atiku Abubakar, its presidential candidate, would save the nation if they were unable to end the internal crises roiling the party.
In his tweet, Keyamo said, “The PDP that’s in crises because of its inability to control its billowing umbrella gathers everyday and the first thing you hear them say is that they want to ‘rescue’ Nigeria; like a teenager whose legs cannot find the clutch of a car wanting to drive a trailer! ‘No be juju be that?”
The PDP’s crisis keeps becoming worse as a result of the ongoing debate surrounding the resignation of Ayu. This call has been led by Wike and Seyi Makinde, the governor of Oyo State, with Atiku stating that Ayu could not be forced to quit.
Atiku, Wednesday, had said, “On the calls for the resignation or removal from office of our national chairman, however, I must reiterate what I have said severally in public and in private; the decision for Dr. Iyorchia Ayu to resign from office is personal to Dr. Ayu and, neither I nor anyone else can make that decision for him.”
