President appoints as spokesman for his 2019 re-election bid campaign

President has picked Festus Keyamo, a Lagos-based lawyer as his spokesman for his 2019 re-election bid.

A letter on April 16th conveyed the appointment of Mr. Festus Keyamo and it was signed by Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation and director-general of the camapign.

The letter said Keyamo’s appointment covers the period before the president “gets APC’s nomination” and during the elections proper.

“I’m pleased to convey to you the decision of the President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation to appoint you as director, strategic communications in respect of the forthcoming campaigns for the 2019 presidential election,” the letter read.

“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 the said nomination and to ensure the success of the subsequent campaigns for the 2019 presidential election.

“In your capacity, you are to be the Spokesperson for the campaign during the nomination process and also at the subsequent campaigns for the 2019 presidential election.”

Contacted by TheCable, the lawyer declined to speak on the appointment, saying he would react in a statement “later in the day”.

He also tweeted about this.

Keyamo, 48, hails from Ugheli, Delta state, and graduated from Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma, Edo state, in 1992.
