Festus Keyamo, the Federal Minister of State for Labour and Employment, says Peter Obi’s dream to become the President of Nigeria, has died a natural death.
He stated this on Sunday in a tweet posted on his verified Twitter page.
Keyamo, who is also the official spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Council, said although Peter Obi is not blameless, the real culprit is the so-called ‘men of God’.
His statement is in reaction to a now-viral recording of a phone conversation between the Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi and Bishop David Oyedepo, obtained by The Gazette.

In the recording, Obi was heard soliciting for ‘Christian votes’ from the head cleric.
Condemning the act, Keyamo said “Having confirmed the authenticity of what is now known as the Peter Obi ‘Yes-daddy’ audio, I think the real culprit here are the so-called ‘men of God’ who allowed themselves to be used by an unscrupulous politician to seek to inflame religious passions in our dear country in the name of politics.
“So, when they were telling their hapless adherents that they heard the voice of the Lord, it was actually Peter Obi’s telephone calls they heard and not God’s voice.
“This is deceitful, shameful and disgusting. Imagine a so-called ‘man of God’ comparing notes with a politician as to what he said or what he would say on the pulpit in order to get him votes.
“I hope this sufficiently embarrasses the ‘men of God’ in Nigeria to forthwith desist from using the pulpit for politics and the Church-goers to stop being teleguided by their self-serving ‘men of God’.

“As for Peter Obi who declared an election a ‘religious war’ in a multi-religious and multi-ethnic country like ours, the real God has just exposed him and his dream to be Nigeria’s President one day has just died a natural death.
‘Yes-daddy’ is now permanently etched in the consciousness of the nation and we will NEVER forget!
