Keyamo reacts to fresh crisis rocking the PDP
Keyamo wondered how the PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, would rescue the country when they could not resolve the internal crisis rocking the party.
In his tweet, Keyamo said:
“The PDP that’s in crises because of its inability to control its billowing umbrella gathers everyday and the first thing you hear them say is that they want to ‘rescue’ Nigeria; like a teenager whose legs cannot find the clutch of a car wanting to drive a trailer! ‘No be juju be that?”
The PDP’s crisis continually deepens as the call for Ayu’s resignation continually caused controversy, a few months before the 2023 elections.
