Keyamo hits Atiku over ‘vote-for-contract’ comment


Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Festus Keyamo (SAN), has taken a swipe at the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, over a comment credited to him.

While speaking on Wednesday at a town hall meeting with stakeholders and members of the party in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, Atiku had promised to give contracts and appointments to those who win their polling units for the PDP.

“If I am president, if you come and say you want a job or you want a contract, I will ask you to let me have the result of your polling booth. That is what I am going to direct to everybody, because unless we do that, we will not win the elections

“You cannot be following the governor to all the places or the senator to all the places and then you don’t win your polling booth and you come and say you want to be a minister or you want to get this contract,” he said

Reacting to the comments, Keyamo, in a tweet, said the former vice president had forgotten that the Public Procurement Act stipulates how contracts are awarded.
