The spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, Festus Keyamo has reacted after former Senator Dino Melaye mocked the health of the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
He also described Delta State Governor and Peoples Democratic Party’s Vice Presidential candidate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as a laughing clown for joining in mocking Tinubu.
According to the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, the act by both Melaye and Okowa showed total disrespect for Tinubu.
Keyamo stated this while reacting to a video of Melaye repeatedly falling to the ground and trying to mimic the APC presidential candidate during the PDP Presidential really in Asaba, the Delta State capital on Tuesday.
Melaye was also seen jamming to the viral ‘Emilokan’ song which was to mock Tinubu’s health challenges.
Keyamo demanded an apology from Melaye and Okowa and wrote:
“Obama’s rival in 2008 US election, Sen. McCain had a deformity in one hand. Obama’s team showed him respect & NEVER mocked him for it. But here, a VP candidate laughs as a clown falls on stage to mock another candidate. It’s the height of imbecility. They owe Nigerians an apology.”
