Festus Keyamo, lead Spokesperson to
Bola Tinubu’s Campaign Council has disclosed why the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate is yet to grant live interviews.
This followed reports stating that Tinubu was not appearing in live television interviews like his major opponents because he “is contesting for Nigerian President, not Media President.”
The statement invited attacks from social media users claiming that his alleged ill-health and incapacitation were the reasons behind why he said no to live interviews.
Speaking in a live interview session with Vanguard on Monday, Keyamo labelled the report as fake news.
Further refuting the claim, he said Tinubu is not shying away from interviews, stressing that “campaigns have not started. The Nation will hear from him again and again and again.”
Again, the deputy director of public affairs of the Tinubu campaign council, Kehinde Bamigbetan, speaking with newsmen maintained that live interview was a strategy of Tinubu’s opponents and not his.
“Tinubu is engaging in consultations. He is visiting and consulting many prominent Nigerians across the country.
Yesterday (Sunday), he visited former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu and his beloved mother in Abuja. His is engaging in consultation, consultation, and consultation and not noise making.”
