Still can’t make up how Festus Keyamo went from Social Crusader, fiery Critic and Human Rights Activist to Buhari’s defender and APC mouthpiece. Still can’t make it up.

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, a HUMAN RIGHTS lawyer and SAN.
Nigeria is a horror story.

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.

Just imagine Gani Fawehinmi alive and a boy he tutored becoming a spokesman for a tyrant with deluge of human rights abuse. Imagine! Na waoooo Festus Keyamo!

A SAN ( Festus Keyamo ) will be working for the reelection of a man who has consistently refused to obey court orders.
God punish hunger..

Festus Keyamo rode on Gani Fawehinmi’s fame as one of his disciples,& today he’s the spokesperson for the re election of Buhari, a man disobeying court orders & violating human rights. He’s now in support of everything Gani fought against. Not surprised,Judas also betrayed Jesus.

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.#NeverReinforceFailure

Congrats Festus Keyamo.
Every hustler has his payday.
Even in the depth of of the murky waters where your soul lies, you know that this appointment comes at the expense of the truth which you sacrificed on the altar of greed.
Don’t worry your grandchildren will read about you.
