Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, mocked ex-senators who are active twitter but lost their seats at the upper chambers.
Although, no particular names were mentioned, it could be easily inferred that ex-senators like Dino Melaye and Shehu Sanni are being referred to.
The Minister has been the subject of much criticism on twitter lately for his position on the controversial social media and hate speech bills.
See Keyamo’s tweet below:
Have you noticed that ALL Twitter Senators are finally out of the Upper Chambers? It tells us that the world of REAL politics in Africa is not yet played on social media. Social media has not had a SUBSTANTIAL impact on our politics. REAL politics is different from Social Media
