Keyamo: Those Who Were Silent When Their Region Burnt Shouldn’t Attack Buhari For Taking Action


Minister of state for labour and employment, Festus Keyamo has expressed that elites who were silent when their region was “on fire” are not fit to teach President Muhammadu Buhari how to do his job.

Recall that President Buhari had on Tuesday said persons behind the attacks on public facilities will “soon have the shock of their lives.”

He also stated those “misbehaving in certain parts of the country are oblivious of the destruction and tragedy that came in the wake of the Nigerian Civil War, adding that “those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”


This statement from the President has led to mixed reactions from Nigerians.

Reacting to the statement, Keyamo in a series of tweets, defended Buhari.

He stated that those against the stance of the federal government were happy about the destruction of public structures.

“I hope some elites who couldn’t find their voices to rein in their wards when their region burnt, will not suddenly find their voices against Mr. President! Those who screamed that it’s Mr. The President’s duty to maintain law & order should NOT try to teach him how to do his job now.”
