Retired American mental health counselor, Dr Jeffery Guterman, literarily set the Nigerian Twitter sphere on fire, on Tuesday, by referring to Festus Keyamo, spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council and Minister of State, Labour & Employment, Festus Keyamo as ‘Mr Mugu.’ Mugu is a term used in pidgin to describe someone as unwise.
Guterman had reacted to Keyamo’s tweet on the viral video of Peter Obi, Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, having one of his aides read out a WhatsApp broadcast against his Presidency. “Shame on you Festus Keyamo,” he wrote.
In his response, the minister asked the American to stay away from Nigerian politics. “Mr. Man @JeffreyGuterman, as a hired online mercenary without a Nigerian Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC), may I suggest you stay away from our local politics? I am under restraint from professional bodies to which I belong, hence I have not descended on you with the worst expletives,” he wrote.
Guterman then dropped the bomb. “I will not stay away from Nigerian politics, Mr. Mugu @fkeyamo. #PeterObiForPresident,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, Nigerian Twitter users have taken to the internet space to express their opinions on this. Below are some of such comment:
@Eganwave said: “Keyamo SAN-Senior Advocate of Nuisance don collect o.”
