2023: Place Keyamo On Terror Watch List, Labour Party Tells Buhari

The Labour Party has called for the immediate placement of the Minister of State for Labour, Festus Keyamo, on the security watch list.

NewsTimes reports that the LP made this known in a statement issued on Tuesday by its spokesman, Abayomi Arabambi while reacting to allegations made by Keyamo against its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

Recall that Keyamo had accused the former Governor of Anambra State of planning to fake his assassination and hire some supporters dressed in the APC caps and T-shirts to attack his party offices.

The Spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council had also accused Obi of circulating a hate-filled video online to disparage the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu.

Reacting to Kayemo’s allegations, Arabambi asked President Muhammadu Buhari to direct the service chiefs to place Keyamo and other members of the APC presidential campaign council on security because of their utterances.

He claimed that Keyamo and other members of the council are now a threat to democracy ahead of the 2023 general elections, describing the minister’s action as treasonable conduct.
