Barrister Festus Keyamo, President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 campaign spokesman must have resumed his duty in full gear following his recent unguarded and incendiary statements aimed at putting President Buhari in good light ahead of the 2019 presidential elections.
Keyamo, during the inauguration of Buhari/Osinbajo Project 2019 in Ilorin, Kwara State on Thursday said that since 1960 when Nigerian gained independence, no government has touched the lives of the poor like that of President Muhammadu Buhari. It is ridiculous when a man who was born in 1970 starts telling elders what happened in 1960.
The controversial divorcee lawyer who has hitherto kept mute on the incessant killings of unarmed people from the middle belt by the terrorist Fulani Herdsmen, who has equally refused to speak against President Buhari’s tyrannical rule and flagrant disregard for the rule of law just because he has gotten what he has been clamouring for; Federal government appointment.
President Buhari’s government is characterised by flagrant disobedience to court orders, disregard for human rights, continuous witchhunting of political enemies and the gagging of the media which the constitution upholds.
Nothing good can come out from a man who in 2016 “openly supported the abduction and forceful rape of his Urhobo sister, Ese Oruru from Ughelli by Yunusa Dahiru alias Yellow a northerner from Kano state . Ese Oruru was 14 years old when she was abducted. She was raped, forcibly Islamized and married off without her parents consent. The conversion and marriage took place in the palace of the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi. Upon her release, it was discovered that she was five months pregnant with her kidnapper’s child.
Well meaning Nigerians condemned Yunusa Dahiru’s actions and called for his prosecution. Human rights lawyer, Ebun Adegboruwa, called the incident a “clear case of child trafficking” and “a worse form of corruption.
When Festus Keyamo was asked about his take on the matter “He said it is a case of two adults who are deeply in love and that they should marry them off” just because he needed an appointment or favour from president Buhari.
Poor Ese Oruru later had a baby girl which Yenusa, her abductor named “Fatima. Early this year Mr. Charles Oruru, the father of Ese Oruru cried out for help. He lamented that the family has been abandoned. He also said that all the promises made by the governments of Bayelsa and Delta states as well as some non-governmental organisations with regard to Ese’s scholarship had not been fulfilled.
Ese Oruru’s life has been destroyed and a huge stigma has covered the family. Barrister Festus Keyamo their fellow Urhobo brother who supposed to to fight for them had rather chosen to support the evil act all because of ephemeral gains.
Barrister Festus Keyamo has a teenage daughter named Nicole, what would he do if someone abduct her and have a carnal knowledge of her? Would he say it’s a case of two lovers who should be married off?
