PMB’s Re-election: Why I Accepted Appointment – Keyamo

Published

on


Fiery human rights lawyer, Festus Keyamo has revealed why he accepted the appointment to serve as the Director, Strategic Communications of President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 Campaign Organisation.
The Senior Advocate, while giving reasons why he accepted to serve in President Buhari’s reelection committee, stated that he found an “approximation of the lofty values I cherish and have fought for all my life” in Buhari.
In a statement he signed, Keyamo added that he agreed to support the re-election bid because the president has “clearly chosen this path in protecting the masses of our country”.

Keyamo said: “Let me put it on record that I was indeed consulted before the announcement. Upon the offer, I wholeheartedly and proudly accepted the challenge to do this for the good of my country and for posterity. For in President Buhari I have found an approximation of the lofty values I cherish and have fought for all my life.
“However, the ultimate aim of every struggle is not really to enthrone a perfect, flawless system. Only the starry-eyed, younger ones think such is possible. That is Utopia. Rather, the ultimate aim of the struggle is to enthrone a government (yes, even with the normal human flaws) that is focused, determined and fiercely opposed to the unscrupulous wheeler-dealers in the society, committed to protecting the interests of the down-trodden, the weak and vulnerable.

“One of the obvious ways to do this is to ensure that what belongs to all is not cornered by a few; and if they do so, to ensure that they are made to account and brought to justice. I can boldly say that no Government in the history of Nigeria has recovered so much looted funds as that of President Muhammadu Buhari
The fact that this Government has clearly chosen this path in protecting the masses of our country (as unpleasant as it has been to some) is one of the many reasons why I am so proud and bold about my support for the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.
