The Official Spokesperson of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo SAN has been slammed on Twitter for defending the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s apparent slurred speech during a recent event.

Speaking during a Town Hall meeting with the private sector in Owerri, Imo State on Thursday, the APC flagbearer uttered some incoherent words that many social media users said could be a symptom of dysarthria.

According to Mayo Clinic, dysarthria is a condition that causes slurred or slow speech that can be difficult to understand and is often caused by nervous system disorders and conditions that cause facial paralysis or tongue or throat muscle weakness.

Defending his principal, Keyamo tweeted that Tinubu was only displaying a sense of humour.

“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,” Keyamo wrote.

However, many Twitter users were apparently not convinced by Keyamo’s explanation, accusing him of gaslighting the public on the matter.
