The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has described Ovation Magazine boss, Dele Momodu, as a clown.
This was after Momodu, while speaking in a Channels Television interview, faulted Keyamo’s appointment as spokesman for the All Progressives Congress presidential campaign.
Reacting, Keyamo said Momodu was trying to pick up what’s left of his life by “shamelessly worming his way into the pockets of Atiku Abubabar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)”.
The minister said instead of stating what part Tinubu copied from Abiola’s document, Momodu embarked on a “pity party” by whipping up sentiments like a “frustrated man to cover up for his obvious inadequacies”.
“Here is a miserable fellow who having previously overrated himself, crashed down like a wingless bird from a futile presidential ambition (for which he got zero votes in the PDP Presidential primaries), and ended up as an hyperactive hireling and attack-dog of perhaps the worst serial loser in Nigeria’s electoral history,” the APC campaign spokesman said.
“Funnily enough, the only curriculum vitae he truly possesses to even make an attempt at the presidency is no more than mere photo ops with celebrities and the high-and-mighty in society.
Contrary to his usual public posturing, it was never a matter of principle. As Mitchelle Obama once put it: ‘When they go low, we go high.’
“As a very busy man with various portfolios and an eye on my huge private practice still going strong and to which I will return anytime, let me end my response here.
“There are far more important things to do than be distracted by the tantrums of someone who seems to be getting increasingly frustrated that those who hired him to salvage the publicity aspect of PDP’s presidential campaign are so far unimpressed with his mediocre performance.
