The retired United States of American mental health counselor, Dr Jeffery Guterman, literarily set the Nigerian Twitter space on fire, on Tuesday, after he tagged the spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council and Minister of State, Labour & Employment, Mr. Festus Keyamo as ‘Mr Mugu.’
Mugu is a term used within the Yoruba parlance to describe someone as unwise.
Guterman had reacted to Keyamo’s tweet on the viral video of Peter Obi, Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, having one of his aides read out a WhatsApp broadcast against his Presidency.
“Shame on you Festus Keyamo,” he wrote.
In his response, the minister asked the American to stay away from Nigerian politics.
Keyamo had said: “Mr. Man @JeffreyGuterman, as a hired online mercenary without a Nigerian Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC), may I suggest you stay away from our local politics? I am under restraint from professional bodies to which I belong, hence I have not descended on you with the worst expletives.”
“My friend @JeffreyGuterman , you should have said this from the word go that you needed financial help, hence your interest in our internal affairs to attract some patronage from supporters here. I am sorry to hear about your financial needs and I wish you well. Goodluck ✌️✌️
Guterman then dropped the bomb:
“I am not your friend, Mr. Mugu @fkeyamo . But please continue replying to my tweets. You are helping me immensely with my financial problems by allowing me to live rent free in your empty head.
“I will not stay away from Nigerian politics, Mr. Mugu @fkeyamo. #PeterObiForPresident,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, Nigerian Twitter users have taken to the internet space to express their opinions on this.
