Keyamo was reacting to a recent statement credited to President Jonathan while receiving the PDP campaign report from the Presidential Campaign Organisation (PCO) at the presidential villa, where he said those who defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, from the PDP would return hungry.
“Those people (PDP members) running and those already cross carpeting”, President Goodluck Jonathan was reported to have said, “will come back on an empty stomach because they (APC leaders) will touch the primary members of their party, before they get to you. They know you are coming because you are hungry. Before it will get to you, the food will be gone.”
Reacting to the submission, the legal practitioner said, “My reaction the first day I heard the statement was that I immediately twitted through my twitter handle @fkeyamo that this clearly confirms that the Jonathan government and PDP were all about filling their stomachs.
“That was an extremely careless utterance by the President, but it contains a real suspicion of truth. By his utterances and his hackneyed approach to governance, Jonathan painted a picture of someone not fit to be a Local Government Chairman what more a bigger office. Inasmuch as I want to respect the institution of the Presidency, the very person who occupies it is debasing it by his actions and utterances.
“So, to protect the Presidency, we must carefully separate the occupant who is destroying it and let the world see him for who he is.
“My prayer is that may the circumstances that threw up a president who was never ready for that office never befalls us again.”
