Barely 24 hours he was moved from the ministry of Niger-Delta Affairs to Labour and Employment ministry, Festus Keyamo (SAN), has on Wednesday reacted, thanking President Muhammadu Buhari for his faultless decision.


“Thank you, Mr. President for finding me versatile enough to move around”, part of his statement read.

The vibrant SAN has quickly added “Former Min. of State, Niger-Delta Affairs, now Hon. Min. of State, Labour & Employment, Senior Advocate of Nig & Fellow, Chartered Inst. of Arb. (UK)” to his profile and displayed it on his twitter handle.

His tweet has generated about 7.2 million likes, 2.4 thousand re-tweets and 914 replies as at the time of filling this report.

Reason for his redeployment

After the announcement of Keyamo’s redeployment, no official press release has been issued to know the rationale behind his sudden change from the ministry of Niger Delta to Labour under two months.

Recall that the Director of Information at the Office of Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Willie Bassey, yesterday issued a statement that Keyamo would replace Tayo Alasoadura as the Minister of State at the labour ministry, while Alasoadura replaced him at the Niger Delta Affairs ministry.

How Keyamo feels

From his reaction, one can deduce the fact that Keyamo is happy to have served as a state minister of Niger-Delta Affairs and now serving as a state minister of Labour and Employment.
