I Will Quit Tinubu’s Campaign If Asked Not To Pursue Atiku’s Case, Keyamo Tells APC NWC

Chief Spokesperson of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo (SAN) on Tuesday said he will quit his role if Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) asked him to withdraw his court case against Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Keyamo who is the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN), had issued a 72-hour ultimatum to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offenses Commission (ICPC) and Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) to arrest the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar.

“‘In the case when they challenged my principal (Bola Tinubu), when they brought up dead documents from the US, I said go to court. Come out with your full chest and go to court. Up until today, they ran away. I am going to court and so, if they wish this thing away, it will not go away, I will continue…I do this under three capacities; I’m a member of the inner bar; secondly, I’m an ordinary concerned Nigerian, who has the right to bring perpetrators of crimes to book”.

“Thirdly, even before I was minister, I was an active prosecutor for the EFCC for more than 15 years so I must help them follow up on whistleblowers,” he said.

“I’m proceeding to court. And if Asiwaju says, “Festus you’re diverting from my campaign, just campaign for me.” I will say take your campaign because this is national interest. I have taken it personally.”
