Festus Keyamo, the new minister of state for labour and employment, says his redeployment from the ministry of Niger Delta was because of his versatility and readiness to serve in any capacity.

President Muhammadu Buhari redeployed Keyamo, who was the minister of state for Niger Delta affairs, in the new position on Tuesday.

The relationship between Keyamo and Godswill Akpabio, minister of Niger Delta affairs, has been less than cordial.

Tayo Alasoadura, who was the junior minister in the ministry of labour and employment, is now the minister of state for Niger Delta affairs.


In a statement via his verified Twitter handle, Keyamo thanked Buhari for finding him “versatile enough to move around”.

“ON THE MOVE AGAIN: TWO PORTFOLIOS IN TWO MONTHS! Just been redeployed to the Ministry of Labour and Employment to work with my long-time big brother, H.E, Chris Ngige. Thank you, Mr. President for finding me versatile enough to move around. Always ready to serve in any capacity,” he tweeted.

Reacting to his redeployment, some Nigerians on Twitter congratulated the minister on the new portfolio while others criticised him and the Buhari administration.

“Akpabio be like “after all ur initial gragra at efcc you’re here las las answering YES SIR to me. Now u can port to labor ministry & serve ur punishment my boy” a user tweeted.

“Congratulations sir.I quickly checked here to confirm if the news was actually true because I don’t trust most of the news this days. Am happy because you have the capacity and what it takes to perform brilliantly in any ministry you might be posted to.Once again congratulations,” another user said.
