He made claims that have set tongues wagging via the micro-blogging platform, Twitter. As stated in the Tweets, Festus shared his view of how he thinks that God raised Peter Obi for a purpose.

Festus Tweeted:

“Indeed, God Almighty raised Peter Obi for a purpose: that purpose was to make ©officialABAT President. Peter Obi was the means to an end, but not the end itself. Many Men of God, with the greatest respect to them, obviously missed this part of the visions that they saw about 2023”

2023: APC Will Win Presidential Election – Keyamo

Festus Keyamo, the spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), has stated that his party will win the Feb. 25 presidential election because it has the upper hand.

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment stated this when he appeared at the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Forum in Abuja.

“Without trying to sound overconfident, I can tell you that the election is ours to lose.

“If you take the baseline for projection for the 2015 and 2019 elections, you will discover that in terms of the demographic setup of Nigeria and the voting pattern in the last two elections, the APC has the upper hand.

“If you take the baseline from the recent elections, then you will know that the election is for APC and our candidate to lose.

“Demographically, we are extremely strong, we are the most diverse and widespread all over the country, the APC is the only party without concentration of support from one part of the country,” he said.

Keyamo, also a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) said it was clear that the APC would record a landslide victory at the poll, going by current developments in the country.

“Again, in a country like ours or anywhere in Africa, you have an opposition that is not together facing the ruling party, that is you have an opposition split into three. How do you expect them to defeat the ruling party?

“It is a very simple calculation, forget about all the noise going around. The split we see today in the opposition parties facing the APC, in the form of PDP, LP and NNPP is an indication of weakness.

“It is a simple calculation and even when they were together as PDP just three and half years ago, we defeated them with 4 million votes, so they have a task of bridging the 4 million votes.

“Even if they were together, they still have a 4 million votes deficit to close up in the last election, not to mention now that they are split into three. Where are the votes going to come from, that’s the question we are asking and we are waiting for the Nigerian electorate to answer that in a few days’ time,” he said.
