Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo has issued a message to public officers in Nigeria.
Keyamo warned that public office holders should make good use of their time in office, adding that power is transient
According to him, ‘no one can annex public office as a personal chattel’ , hence reason he stays back from the razzmatazz of public office.
The minister said this in a terse statement on his official Twitter page on Thursday morning.
The post read: “Public officers must always bear in mind the cliche that power is transient. They have limited time to make their modest contributions and bow out for others to continue.
“No one can annex public office as a personal chattel. That’s why I recoil from the razzmatazz of public office.”
Keyamo’s comment is coming at a time where talks on third term agenda and 2023 presidency are stirring up the polity.
Recall, former Lagos governor, Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday, dismissed speculations that President Muhammadu Buhari had a third term agenda.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader also urged Nigerians to discard search of Buhari’s sucessor.
According to him, “Nigeria has just finished one election and the president is sorting out the budget and working for the country.
“Any lover of the country will not begin to talk about succession now.”
