Keyamo drags Peter Obi, Datti to DSS
Festus Keyamo, the minister (of state) of labour and productivity, has petitioned the Department of State Services (DSS), about certain statements made by Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed, the presidential and vice presidential candidates of the Labour Party in the February 25 poll.
The minister, who doubles as the spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress presidential campaign council, equally accused Obi and Datti of camping some youths inside a hotel in Abuja from where they would be issuing inciting comments on social media.
Keyamo accused Obi and Datti of “making incendiary comments and claims about the declaration of the President-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)”.
According to him, “The latest of such are the comments made by Datti Baba-Ahmed on behalf of himself and Mr. Peter Obi on Channels TV on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, wherein he threatened that if the President-Elect is sworn in on May 29th, 2023, it would “signal the end of democracy”.
“Posing as an accuser, a judge and a jury all by himself, he unilaterally declared the duly elected President-elect as “unconstitutional” and, in a subliminal manner, threatened mayhem if the President-Elect is sworn in on May 29th, 2023.
“I also have it on good authority that Mr. Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed have camped some youths in a popular hotel in Abuja with the sole aim of instructing them to push out inciting messages everyday on social media in order to cause panic and fear within the federation and to incite people to riot and social unrest”.
