In his opinion, neither candidate have the level of acceptance, street cred, or integrity that President Buhari does in the North.


“Atiku Abubakar and Rabiu Kwankwaso do not have the popularity, acceptability, street credibility, and the kind of integrity that Buhari has that made him a rave in the North,” he said.

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment added that Tinubu would get the bloc votes of President Buhari to win the 2023 presidential election.

He added, “I am optimistic that the structures that worked to get us those bloc votes are still with us.”

Atiku’s media advisor, Paul Ibe, responded to Keyamo’s assertion by criticizing the Minister for claiming that his client lacks street credibility and is unpopular in the North.
