Nigerians toast, roast Keyamo’s appointment by Buhari
Mixed reactions from Nigerians on Twitter have greeted the appointment of lawyer-human rights activist, Festus Keyamo (SAN), as the spokesperson for President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 campaign.
Nigerians expressed varying opinion about Keyamo’s appointment. Some say he is not fair to the masses he has hitherto claimed to fight for, while others say it is a job like every other person’s.
On Tuesday morning (today), Keyamo was appointed as the the Director, Strategic Communications for Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 presidential campaigns.
The SAN, who seems ecstatic about his appointment, took to his Twitter handle to share the news with anyone who cares enough to read.
He wrote, “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 late.”
People have since aired diverse views about the subject matter. Here are some of the tweets:
