Nigerians lampoon Festus Keyamo for sharing fake video to back claim of Labour Party rigging.

Minister of State for Labour, Festus Keyamo, has been called out for sharing a fake video in his attempt to accuse the Labour Party of vote rigging in the recently concluded presidential election.

In the tweet shared on Saturday evening, Keyamo claimed the Labour Party has been putting out barefaced lies and engaging in propaganda with its claim of the presidential election being rigged.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria tweeted ;

“This is the political Party saying only their figures were accurate but other political Parties rigged. It is the barefaced lies & audacity with which they carry on their propaganda that is very befuddling! They will soon discover the difference b/w propaganda & judicial analyses”

However, a quick check revealed that the video was from one of the voter education programmes before the general election. The ballot papers shown in the video visibly had specimen watermarks.

Voter education programmes are usually organised by the government, civil society, and political parties alike during election seasons.

Keyamo has now been called out by Twitter users for passing off a false claim.
