The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has rubbished the outcry about the whereabouts of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate Bola Tinubu.
Keyamo said the oppositions are afraid and have nightmares due to Tinubu’s absence.
In a tweet, the APC presidential campaign council spokesman said Tinubu’s refusal to disclose his whereabouts was a political strategy.
Keyamo noted that the strategy was to keep the opposition guessing about Tinubu’s whereabouts.
He wrote: “Whether he’s around or not, they’re scared. @officialABAT has become their nightmare. The inquiries are out of FEAR as to what he is up to.
“The biggest political strategy is to keep your opponent guessing! Even by mere absence, @officialABAT remains the issue in this campaign.”
A cross-section of Nigerians had raised the alarm over Tinubu’s whereabouts following his absence during the peace pact signing.
The APC presidential candidate had sent his running mate, Kashim Shettima, to the event.
His absence is coming 72 hours into the official campaign for the 2023 general elections, a situation that has generated concerns among his supporters.
Tinubu left the country unannounced on Sunday for the United Kingdom, fueling speculation that the candidate may be in the UK for medical attention, considering that he spent some months in that country.
