Why I’m not part of Tinubu’s legal team, Keyamo reveals

A member of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, has explained why he was not among the legal practitioners appointed by the party to defend the President-elect, Bola Tinubu in court.

No fewer than 13 experienced legal practitioners have been listed by the All Progressive Congress (APC) to represent the party at the election petition tribunal.

However, some netizens have mocked Keyamo on social media that he failed to make the list in spite of his support for Tinubu and the APC.

Reacting, Keyamo said he was not on the list because he is still a serving minister.

According to him, the Constitution does not allow a serving minister to be listed as a member of a private legal team.

However, he informed that he could join the legal team after May 29, when his tenure must have expired.

“For those who made inquiries, a serving Minister (by our Constitution) cannot be listed in any private legal team, though he/she can support the team in preparation. Hence, the present cabinet ministers who are SANs can only formally join the Election Petition team after May 29th,” Keyamo said in a tweet on Tuesday.

  1. Festus Keyamos, your a double faced lawyer. You have no moral right to appear in a matter that has to do with Tinubu. Tinubu administration may go but no matter how long it lasts, Nigerians cannot forget what Prof Yakubu did to this nation. Nigerians will never be happy with Tinubu.

    1. You are on your own,if you aren't happy who cares, it's your bad belle that's make you not to be happy, Nigerians are happy with Tinubu and you will soon join the moving train when started seen developmental project.

    2. Only dafts and nincompoops behave irrationally simply because the candidate they supported is a tender foot who could not win an election. Obi and his band wagon should know that Jagaban took about 30 years preparing for the 2023 bout whereas tender foots like Obi thought they can easily knockout an all rounder simply because they harp on ethnic and religious bigotry. Kai! E no go work.

    3. It’s only you that are not happy .Nigerian are happy with the outcome of elections result and welcome the president elect
