Former Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, found himself at the center of social media mockery when his name was conspicuously absent from the ministerial nominee list submitted by President Bola Tinubu to the Senate on Thursday morning.
Despite the presentation of the list by the President’s Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, within the constitutional deadline, Keyamo’s name did not make the cut.
Timely Presentation of the Ministerial Nominee List
As per the constitutional requirements set by the ninth Assembly, the Chief of Staff to President Tinubu, Femi Gbajabiamila, ensured the timely presentation of the ministerial nominee list to the Senate, well ahead of the President’s deadline.
Among the names on the list were notable figures like economist Olawale Edun, former governor Nyesom Wike, Adebayo Adelabu, Ali Pate, and El Rufai, among others.

The notable absence of Festus Keyamo’s name from the ministerial nominee list immediately caught the attention of Nigerians on social media.
