Tinubu: Keyamo Speaks On ‘Amoda Ogunlere’ Controversy

Spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential campaign, Mr. Festus Keyamo, has spoken on the controversy rocking the ruling party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

For months on end, Tinubu has come under heavy criticism over his real identity, which many of his critics say he has changed at a point in time in other to cover up his crimes in the past.

Tinubu’s critics have claimed that his real name is Amoda Ogunlere, an allegation that the politician has distanced himself from.

Weighing in on the conversation during a Twitter Spaces Programme organised by the ABAT (Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu) media team, Keyamo, who is the Minister of State for Labour and Productivity, said “The Constitution section 131, Paragraph A says you have to be a Nigerian by birth. That’s the first requirement. So if Tinubu is from Osun State or from Lagos State, thank God they are not saying he is from Cameroon. He is not in the mode of those who claimed to come from one part of the country whereas by the time they were born that part of the country was in Cameroon.

“So whether Asiwaju is from Osun, Lagos or anywhere, Asiwaju is from Nigeria. So Asiwaju is qualified. It is very disrespectful and unfair to just generate cock and bull story against families. Either the family from Osun State, Amoda Ogunlere or the Tinubu family, you are disrespecting the families. The Amoda family has not come out to say this is my son or my brother and the Tinubu family has also not denied him. So what are they looking for? Is it that the Amoda family or Ogunlere family are not Nigerians or they are of lesser human beings. They need to tell us what they are saying.”
