Keyamo Begins New Hashtag On Twitter Over Reports On Judiciary

A former Minister of State for Labour and Productivity, Festus Keyamo has started a new hashtag on the microblogging platform, Twitter following alleged stories against the judiciary.

Naija News recalls that the National Judicial Council (NJC) and the Court of Appeal denied a social media claim that Justice Boloukuoromo Ugo had withdrawn his membership from the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC).

Naija News understands that micro-blogging platform, Twitter went wild on Wednesday after a user, Umar Sani, claimed that Ugo resigned from the five-member panel after citing “demands to knee-cap democracy”.

Sani alleged that the judge, in his resignation letter, stated that he was asked to “cripple the independence of the judiciary” by ruling in favour of a certain political candidate believed to be President Bola Tinubu.

However, reacting in a chat with TheCable on Thursday, the spokesman of the NJC, Soji Oye said the claims are false and should be ignored by discerning Nigerians.

Oye stated that the aim of the claims is to distract Nigerians and set the tone for a narrative, in the event that the court’s judgement doesn’t favour the rumour peddlers.

Reacting to the development in a tweet via his verified Twitter handle on Friday, Keyamo described those behind the reports against the judiciary as cowardly blackmailers.

He, therefore, asked if there is a concocted story on the judiciary today and started the hashtag titled #AllEyesOnTheBlackmailers.

He wrote: “Hello cowardly blackmailers, is there any concocted story on the judiciary today?

Note: as from now on it’s going to be #AllEyesOnTheBlackmailers.”
