Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN), on Sunday said he was not desperate to control the state of affairs in the Delta State chapter of the troubled All Progressives Congress.
He was reacting to allegations that he rubbished the purported conduct of congresses in the state on Saturday.
However, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Tunde Moshood, the minister said: “Please, kindly disregard any social media post to the effect that the Hon. Minister made any comment about the supposed Congresses that happened or did not happen in Delta State today. It is fake news sponsored by those who want to play God in the politics of Delta State and who have refused to learn from the experiences of those who tried to do same in the past. The Hon. Minister is not in contest with anyone and is very content with his professional and political status (achieved through dint of hardwork) and believes in the adage, Que Sera Sera.
The Hon. Minister and all party members in the State who believe in his leadership, based on his sincere and honest advice to the Party on the import of the Supreme Court judgment in the Ondo case and other issues to be highlighted later, stayed away from any supposed event in that regard.
In the fullness of time, everyone will come to appreciate the position of the Hon. Minister. His only prayer is that it should not be too late by then.”
