The table has been turned!
A Lawyer is now spokesperson for a failed president of the most populated black nation on Earth, Nigeria.
Without being told, we all know that PMB is a failed president in every sense of it.
Human rights lawyer Festus Keyamo has been appointed as the Director, Strategic Communications (Official Spokesperson) for the President’s 2019 Presidential Campaigns.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) shared news of the appointment via his Facebook and Twitter handle on Tuesday.
The letter of appointment was signed on April 16, 2018 by transport minister Rotimi Amaechi who is also the Director General of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Campaign Organisation.
Festus Keyamo, SAN
With this letter below
I have just been appointed the Director, Strategic Communications (Official Spokesperson for the President’s 2019 Presidential Campaigns. I will be making a formal statement on this much later.
Shortly before travelling to UK last week on April 9, Buhari told a meeting of the National Executive Committee of ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) that he would seek a re-election in 2019.
While receiving the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace Justin Welby in London Wednesday, President Buhari explained why he was seeking a re-election.
“I declared before leaving home because Nigerians were talking too much about whether I would run or not. So, I felt I should break the ice.
“We have many things to focus on, like security, agriculture, economy, anti-corruption, and many others. We needed to concentrate on them, and politics should not be a distraction. The majority of Nigerians appreciate what we are doing, and that is why I am re-contesting.”
The President unveiled some successes of the administration to his guest, with whom he has built a deep friendship in recent times, and was quite particular about strides in agriculture.
“We have cut the importation of rice by about 90%, saving billions of dollars in the process. People who rushed into petrol money have now gone back to agriculture. Even professionals have gone back to the land. Nigeria should be able to feed itself comfortably soon. I am so pleased,” the President said.
On the war against insurgency, he stressed the need for continuous education of the people, “so that they can be free from religious manipulation,” adding that no true religion advocates the hurting or killing of the innocent.
Responding to his guest’s comment on the clashes between herdsmen and farmers in different parts of Nigeria, the President submitted:
“The problem is even older than us. It has always been there, but now made worse by the influx of armed gunmen from the Sahel region into different parts of the West African sub-region.
“These gunmen were trained and armed by Muammar Gadaffi of Libya. When he was killed, the gunmen escaped with their arms. We encountered some of them fighting with Boko Haram.
Herdsmen that we used to know carried only sticks and maybe a cutlass to clear the way, but these ones now carry sophisticated weapons.
“The problem is not religious, but sociological and economic. But we are working on solutions.”
President Buhari lamented that “irresponsible politics” has been brought into the farmers/herders’ crisis, but assured that enduring solutions would be found, and justice done to all concerned.
Not many Nigerians are pleased with his new appointment and have taken to Twitter to express disappointment at the social critic.
It is not clear if he has accepted to play the role of the newly appointed strategist but says he will be making a formal statement much later.

Keyamo will go down in history as a vessel of slavery, captivity and junk leadership against the people of Nigeria. At a time the masses needed escape routes from poverty, hardships and dictatorship Festus Keyamo disguised as a true human right advocate and offered his dwarfed monetised conscience in exchange for misgovernance, mischief and misfortune against the people of Nigeria
Congrats to Festus Keyamo. You have been rewarded for not having a conscience and selling your soul to the devil.

I have nothing against Festus Keyamo, SAN. I am happy his hustle has paid off But if you hold yourself out as a human rights lawyer, you can’t accept the position of Spokesman for the campaign of a Govt famed for rights abuses. Light & darkness have nothing in common. Simple.
Festus Keyamo has just been offered appointment as a Director in President Buhari’s Campaign Organisation. Life is testing him now. Like others, we shall see how he’ll come out on the other side. I wish him well.
Festus Keyamo, a human rights lawyer and a SAN of Nigeria has accepted the job of spokesperson for Buhari’s campaign.
Buhari has murdered hundreds of shiites, illegally detains their leader, disobeys court orders.
How much is Festus Keyamo’s conscience worth please?

If you feel betrayed by Festus Keyamo, just see it as useful education. Now you know better than to abandon your civic duties to professional activists that you oddly expected sainthood from.
Buhari has presided over a lawless government, he has killed shiites indiscriminately, illegally detains critics and disobeys court orders.
Guess who is the spokesperson for his reelection campaign? Festus Keyamo, HUMAN RIGHTS lawyer and SAN.
Nigeria is a horror story.

Tolu Ogunlesi was jumping upandan on Twitter, he got an appointment. Festus Keyamo was yabbing everybody because of Buhari, he got his reward. Jags turned himself to Agbero for APC, he got one. Ayedee, try harder
Mr Stanley Nwabia
As a Human Rights Lawyer, he lost most of his major Court cases. As EFCC Prosecutor, he fumbled ALL Corruption cases at his disposal. Failed to Secure Delta state Gubernatorial ticket.
Festus Keyamo and Buhari have a lot in common, both are Serial Failures.
