Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for labour and employment has urged Presidential hopeful and former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria Kingsley Moghalu to join the All Progressives Congress (APC) after the latter dumped the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
Moghalu announced his resignation from ADC on Monday, stating infractions during the presidential primary which he contested as his reason for leaving the party.
In his letter to the ADC national chairman, Moghalu said his distaste for “cash-and-carry” politics is the reason he has refused to join the APC or the Peoples Democratic Party.
However, reacting to his announcement, Mr Keyamo said in a tweet that the former CBN executive should have realised that ADC and other parties seen as the Third Force are for only Nigerians that have not been tested.
He said, “My own dear brother, @MoghaluKingsley, you’ve just seen that the so-called Third Force are just some untested Nigerians who may just be worse off.
“They’re not from the moon; they’re NIGERIANS. It’s all sound & fury & nothing more. Welcome to the REAL WORLD. Please, join us in APC.”
