Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has told Nigerians that they are not the only ones suffering economic crisis as other countries like France are also experiencing the same issue presently.
Taking to his Facebook page, Festus shared a video of residents of Paris, France, staging a mass protest in the streets over the soaring cost of living and inflation in their country.
Reacting to the protest, he berated Nigerians planning to relocate a.k.a ‘japa’ to such countries because they would still face the same economic meltdown over there. According to him, the present inflation in the country is a global issue and not peculiar to Nigeria alone.
Keyamo wrote on Facebook,
“MASSIVE PROTESTS ON THE STREETS OF PARIS OVER SOARING PRICES. MEANWHILE SOME ARE STILL PLANNING TO ‘JAPA’ ABROAD, AS IF NIGERIA IS IN ISOLATION FROM PRESENT GLOBAL ISSUES. SOME WHO KNOW THE ISSUES ARE ALSO DECEIVING NIGERIANS AND PLAYING LOCAL POLITICS WITH GLOBAL ISSUES”
A while back, Festus Keyamo, has stated that Nigerians and Christians in general, have nothing to fear over the Muslim-Muslim ticket his party, APC has presented ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
Last Sunday, July 10, the APC Presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, a Muslim, announced former Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima, a Muslim, as his running mate. The revelation has been greeted with mixed reactions with a lot of Christians saying it is a slap on the Christian community.
