Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has named those attempting to push the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo into rebeling against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Keyamo said some anarchists who wants the current government to crumble are attempting to push Osinbajo into rebellion.
He, however, described Osinbajo as a dutiful Vice President who has refused to do their biddings.
In a series of tweets, Keyamo wrote:
The intention of those castigating the VP as being ‘docile’ is to egg him on to rebel against his boss. They know he’s dutifully performing his constitutional roles, but these are anarchists who would wish this govt crumbles. The dutiful VP has failed to fuel their warped fancies— Festus Keyamo, SAN (@fkeyamo) April 7, 2021
One joke I often see online is when people who have absolutely no role to play in your life say they are disappointed in you because of your opinions. Pray, did they APPOINT you so as to be disappointed in you? Or are you under some obligation to satisfy their crooked fancies?
Democracy is NOT the govt of the educated, by the educated & for the educated. No one will come & worship your certificate & concede power to you. It’s indeed a measure of education to respect & accommodate all shades of people & opinions & then access power through such humility.
