Festus Keyamo, the immediate past Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has responded to his nomination as a minister.
President Ahmed Tinubu included him in a new list of ministerial nominees submitted to the Senate, as announced by Senate President Godswill Akpabio during a plenary session.
Expressing Gratitude with a Gospel Song:
In a tweet from his verified Twitter account, Festus Keyamo expressed his appreciation for the appointment.
He used the lyrics of a popular Gospel song to convey his gratitude, emphasizing the miraculous nature of the opportunity he has been given.
Social Media Mockery and Missing Name:
Prior to this recent nomination, Festus Keyamo’s name was conspicuously absent from the second batch of ministerial nominees, which drew ridicule and mockery on social media platforms.
Alongside former Minister of Aviation, Femi-Fani Kayode, Keyamo had been actively engaged in discussions on Twitter during the 2023 presidential election that saw Bola Tinubu emerge as president.
The omission of their names from the initial list led to questions and jests from Nigerians directed at both Keyamo and Fani-Kayode on their respective Twitter accounts.
Festus Keyamo has expressed his gratitude for being nominated as a minister through a Twitter post featuring the lyrics of a Gospel song.
The inclusion of his name in the new list comes after social media chatter surrounding the absence of his name from the initial batch of ministerial nominees.
As the nomination process continues, Keyamo’s reaction shows his appreciation for the opportunity to serve in the government once again.
