Keyamo slams those comparing then vs now price of tomatoes

Keyamo tomatoes

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has said it is a lazy way to campaign using the then vs now price of tomatoes.

According to him, prices never remain the same, adding that whatever Nigeria is facing today is also being faced across the rest of the world.

Keyamo, who spoke on Channels TV Politics Today, revealed that the price of tomatoes and others would have been worse today if not for President Muhammadu Buhari.

“It is a lazy way to campaign by saying what is the price of tomato then, what is the price of tomato today. Prices have never been stable. So they (the opposition) should not deceive the younger ones. We are going to expose them soon.

“It is a lazy way to campaign using the price of tomato and rice. We are going to have a debate, we will put the global macroeconomics on a scale and put Nigeria on that scale as where Nigeria is. It is a lazy way to campaign.

“I am not saying the prices of tomato and rice do not matter. But I am saying it is a lazy way to campaign. It could have been worse. You cannot take Nigeria out of the global context. Nigeria is not in isolation,” he said.
