Keyamo accuses politicians of trying to blackmail him
Keyamo accuses politicians of trying to blackmail him as the minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo accuses politicians of blackmail and hijack of 774,000 jobs.
Speaking on Monday, June 28 in Abuja at the inauguration of the state selection committee for SPW which is a post COVID19 poverty alleviation programme
This was approved by President Muhammadu Buhari, Keyamo cautioned the state chairmen against compromising the objective of the initiative which he said was to give job opportunity to the people.
He vowed not to succumb to any form of blackmail, pledging to drive the initiative to a successful conclusion as Keyamo accuses politicians of trying to blackmail him
“There have been attempts at blackmailing me in this particular programme too to make us also yield to political leaders and we have said no, not while I am here.
“I have a pedigree. I have a background. I know where I am coming from. Before I came into public office, I have a pedigree and what I stand for.
“Except Mr. President, who appointed me stops me, and who gave me the opportunity and rare privilege to drive this programme, except he stops me, no other political leader or person can stop me. I am answerable only to Mr President.
“Before coming here today, there has been an attempt by certain political leaders to say I must come and see them behind the scene first to determine who gets what and how, and I said no. I am ready at any time for a public debate on this with them.
“I think the chairmen can stand on their own; don’t go and hold meetings in the house of politicians to select; hold your meetings in NDE offices. Don’t go and meet in any government house to hold any meeting, don’t go to any politicians’ house to do selections.”
