Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s announcement of his intention to seek second term in office last week Monday, human rights activist, Mr. Festus Keyamo SAN, has been appointed as the official spokesperson for the Buhari Campaign Organisation.
Keyamo confirmed his appointment in a tweet on Tuesday morning, posting it alongside a soft copy of his appointment letter.
“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,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, the letter dated April 16, 2018 and signed by the DG of the Campaign, Rotimi Amaechi, announced that Keyamo has been appointed as the “Director, Strategic Commissions in respect of the forthcoming campaigns for the 2019 Presidential Elections.”
“As you are aware, President Muhammadu Buhari is seeking the nomination of our great Party, the All Progressives Congress, as the candidate for the said election. Your appointment is to aid in getting that nomination and to ensure the success of the subsequent campaigns for the 2019 Presidential Elections.
“In your capacity, you are to be the Spokesman for the campaigns during the nomination process and also at the subsequent campaigns for the 2019 Presidential Elections,” part of the letter read.
