Festus Keyamo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress’ presidential campaign council has condenmed critics of President Muhammadu Buhari for mocking the people of Zamfara State for voting President Muhammadu Buhari during the presidential election on February 23, 2019.
Keyamo said this after the Speaker of the Zamfara State House Assembly, Alhaji Sanusi Rikiji, on Friday said no fewer than 50 persons, including members of Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) were killed in the state on Tuesday.
President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defeated his closest opponent, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), with 313,259 votes in Zamfara State.
Following the recent increase in bandits killings in Zamfara State, some critics have mocked the citizens of the state for voting for President Buhari during the 2019 elections.
However, Keyamo, responded to the critics via his Twitter handle on Monday; saying “Those who’re deriding the people of Zamfara for voting PMB, despite security challenges, are not really shaming them; they’re rather shaming their own Presidential candidate who, in spite of these challenges, was never considered a trustworthy alternative to PMB by the Zamfara people.”
