” You Have Justified Why You Should Be A Second Class Citizen”– Aisha Yesufu To Festus Keyamo

Notable Nigerian activist for good governance and the convener of Bring-back-our-girls, Aisha Yesufu has tongue lashed the minister of State for Labour and employment, Festus Keyamo over his defense of Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s choice of Kashim Shettima as his running mate.

Mix reactions followed  Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s declaration of former governor of Borno state, Kashim Shettima, a Muslim as his running mate.

Some argued that the Nigeria is unripe for the president and his vice to belong to one particular faith especially as the current president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari is also a Muslim.

Consequently, while reacting to the criticisms against Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s choice of running mate, Festus Keyamo noted that competence should be placed above religious sentiment. He described the combination of Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima as a perfect one, a blending of youthfulness and experience.

However, Aisha Yesufu did not find Festus Keyamo ‘s argument as veritable as she reminded him that despite being a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and more qualified to be the attorney general of the Federation, that less qualified person, Abubakar Malami occupies the position at his expense due to his religion and origin.

She further claims that Festus Keyamo by his comment, has justified that he is a second citizen in Nigeria.

“They told you that you are a second class citizen and you believed it. You now justify why you should be a second class citizen. They made you Minister of State for labour while a less competent Malami was made Attorney General. Kanye West was right. Many choose to be slaves!” She tweeted.
