Festus Keyamo

Spokesman of the APC presidential campaign council Festus Keyamo has joked that the new nickname for President-elect Bola Tinubu is “the last man standing.”

Mr Keyamo’s comment on Wednesday night followed Tinubu’s visit to the residence of businessman Tony Elumelu late Tuesday.

Keyamo, also the minister of state for labour and employment, tweeted the viral video of Elumelu calling Tinubu “the last man standing.”

He captioned the video, “New nickname alert for @officialABAT: THE LAST MAN STANDING!”

Among Tinubu’s nicknames are ‘Asiwaju’, ‘Jagaban’, and ‘City Boy’.

Elumelu, chairman of UBA Group, said in an Instagram post that he was honoured to receive Tinubu at his home, adding that they discussed ways in which the incoming administration would empower young people in the country.

He said, “Last night, I was honoured to receive the Nigerian President-elect @officialasiwajubat at my home. We discussed ways in which the incoming administration must empower and support our immensely talented Nigerian youth. We have so much young potential to unleash!”

Tinubu won the election on February 25 with over 8 million votes, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
