Minister of state, labour and employment, Festus Keyamo has advised Nigerians not to allow clerics of any faith to influence their voting pattern in the 2023 presidential election.
Gatekeepers News reports that Keyamo in a series of tweets asked Nigerians to shun religious sentiments and be focused on performance when voting in 2023.
He tweeted, “A famous quote: ‘Are you Hindu, muslim or Christian?’ And a young girl replied, ‘I am hungry!’ As the elites selfishly try to smuggle religion into politics, ordinary citizens just need good governance.
“We must steer the country towards the part of making HUMANITY our religion!
“No one should deceive us, as ordinary Nigerians, be it a pastor or Imam, to vote or not to vote for anyone based on the religious colouration of the ticket.
“Let the debate begin as to the PERFORMANCE of @officialABAT as Gov. of Lagos State and not the issue of same faith ticket”
