President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Festus Keyamo on his 49th birthday and commended him for having earned the “highest place and esteem” in the legal profession through his defence of the rights of ordinary Nigerians.
Malam Garba Shehu, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, in a statement in Abuja, said the president made the commendation in a message of congratulations which he personally signed and addressed to Keyamo on Monday.
Buhari thanked the Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council for bringing these qualities to bear on the ongoing campaign for elections.
The congratulatory message had the headline: “Happy Birthday, Festus.”
“I write to heartily congratulate you on your 49th birthday, today.
“The story of your life has always been to speak up for the masses of our country and at critical times in the life of our nation. You have also used law as an instrument to achieve these goals.
“This has rightly earned you the highest place and esteem in your profession as Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).
“As you apply these qualities in helping to CHANGE this nation through our campaigns, I pray that God Almighty will continue to bless you and grant you long life and good health,” the President said.
He wished Keyamo a Happy Birthday.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, Adams Oshoimole, has lambasted former president Olusegun Obasanjo.
Oshoimole spoke at the inauguration of the Buhari re-election campaign in Maiduguri, Borno State, on Monday.
The former Edo governor lauded Buhari over the successes recorded in the counter-insurgency campaign and peace restoration to the northeast region.
Oshiomole recalled that 24 local government areas were under the control of Boko Haram insurgents in 2015, adding that the military under the stewardship of Buhari, reclaimed all the communities.
“We still have security challenges but the arrogance and impunity that was wallowing Nigeria is now a thing of the past.
“The situation we find ourselves in now started during Obasanjo’s regime. Do-or-die politics was Obasanjo’s legacy. Today, the era of impeaching state governors is over.
“The era of quarrelling with Vice President on the streets is over; the era of withdrawal of Lagos state monthly allocations is also one of the legacies of Obasanjo,” Oshiomhole added.
