The spokesperson for the 2019 presidential campaign of the All Progressives Congress(APC), Festus Keyamo, has been dragged on social media over his “mediocre” post.
Keyamo had taken to Twitter on Thursday morning to praise Kwara state governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq, for carrying his own bag at the airport.
In the video shared by Keyamo(SAN), the Kwara state governor is seen standing in a queue, carrying his own sling bag, earning him some accolades from Keyamo.
Keyamo wrote: Commendable humility and civility: Kwara Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq, on the queue at the airport carrying his own sling bag across his shoulders.

Reacting, a Twitter user wrote: “Is the bag not his own?
“Is every man not supposed to bear their own burden?
“Your next tweet will be:
“Commendable humility and civility”:
“The President is putting rice into his mouth, using his own spoon
“This is the shameful next level APC has brought Nigeria into.”
Another wrote: “A man carrying his backpack is humility. Have you seen Peter Obi pushing his cart at the airport? Do you know how humble Peter Obi is? There’s nothing you people won’t celebrate.
“What if he was carrying money like Ganduje and doesn’t want to hand it over to someone?
One even wrote: “Very true. I agree with you Festus Keyamo. He is so humble that he feeds himself, baths himself & even breathe the same air as us. SMH. Association is indeed contagious.”
Another Twitter user wrote: “Pls I stand to be corrected, what is the big deal in you carrying your stuff yourself. Abnormalities have become normal in our land. When unserious and incompetent people are in position, this is the type of post they publish. Jobless ventures.
