Ex-Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has accused the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo of trying to manipulate history.
It will be recalled that Keyamo had said that Atiku was among the first Nigerians to abandon the June 23 struggle.
According to him, the Turaki of Adamawa , former President Olusegun Obasanjo and some of the current presidential candidates never played any role in the June 12 struggle.
He added that only Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, played a role in the June 12 struggle, adding that Tinubu should be allowed to rule Nigeria in 2023.
In a swift response, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, dismissed Keyamo’s remark of him abandoning the June 12 struggle.
His response was contained in a tweet by his Media Aide, Paul Ibe.
Ibe tweeted: “2023: Atiku, June 12 And Keyamo’s Attempt To Rewrite History
“The events of the June 12 crisis are too well documented for anyone to seek to distort it. Keyamo told a blatant lie when he said Atiku “abandon(ed) June 12″. Atiku never abandoned June 12.”
