Just after being appointed as the spokesperson of President Buhari 2019 Campaign, Nigerian Senior Lawyer, Festus Keyamo, SAN, and six others have been appointed by the Nigerian President as members of the board of the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation, NDIC.
The appointment news was disclosed by President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday, as he read the letter from Buhari at the plenary after which he sought legislative approval for the appointments. It was gathered that Keyamo is to represent Delta State on the board.
We reported few weeks ago, that Nigerians reacted to appointment of Festus Keyamo as Director, Strategic Communications, for Buhari’s campaign. According to Twitter users, the ‘hustle’ of the Nigerian Lawyer, who has been defending President Buhari against many backlash, has started paying off.
Here are some tweets below;
@Hailfinger1: “Mr Festus Keyamo, SAN @fkeyamo appointed as the Director, Strategic Communications (Official Spokesperson) for the President’s 2019 Presidential Campaign.
“But the @NGRPresident claimed he is not bothered with the 2019 General elections. @GarShehu @MBuhari @Laurestar liars.”
@OrjiUka: “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.”
@IneCharles: “Festus Keyamo: if we must rate the government we must rate it based on the circumstances that were met. Nigeria was heading down the drain when Buhari came in. These are facts.”
@bolaNLee_c: “APC football Club are presenting the baddest team for 2019 World cup.”
“Rotimi Amaechi as captain, Festus keyamo (SAN) as central defender. Bola Tinubu as player coach.”
@SKSolaKuti: “Flash: For selling his soul to the devil and displaying brazen stupidity, Buhari has finally rewarded Senior Advocate of No-Conscience Festus Keyamo by appointing him as spokesperson for his 2019 campaign.”
@B_ELRUFAI: “Festus Keyamo has been appointed as the Spokesperson of the re-election bid of President @MBuhari. His appointment was confirmed by the Minister of Transport and Director General of the Presidential Council, Rotimi Amaechi.”
@ijaola_ibrahim: “Have you ever seen Buhari going to seek Imam’s endorsement or campaigning in the Mosque? The last Administration did everything to sacrifice the peace of this nation for political selfish reasons….”
