We reported earlier that media personality, David Hundeyin who shared the video said he feels Tinubu was trying to pronounce “hullabaloo”, but could “barely move his lips without slurring his words terribly.”

Reacting to the video via Twitter, Keyamo claimed that Tinubu was only exhibiting his sense of humour.

He also claimed that the APC presidential who he said was trying to say he “prefers a proper town hall meeting to the gibberish his opponents say elsewhere”, practically demonstrated the gibberish his opponents say by uttering those tongue-twisting words.

Keyamo, who is also Nigeria’s Minister of State for Labour tweeted;

“Listen to the sense of humour of @officialABAT. He says he prefers a proper town hall meeting to the gibberish his opponents say elsewhere. He practically demonstrates the gibberish they say by uttering those tongue-twisting words to show the nonsense his opponents say elsewhere.”
