A pro-Buhari group known as One Destiny Organization (ODO) said the appointment of Festus Keyamo, SAN, as spokesperson for the Buhari Campaign Organisation (BCO) would make the president's re-election bid easier in 2019, Vanguard reports.
NAIJ.com gathered that Ohiri O Lewis, the national coordinator, in a statement on Tuesday, April 17, in Abuja, said that the appointment of Keyamo was in recognition of his integrity, commitment and dedication to the cause of President Buhari’s re-election.
He said: “It is a well deserved appointment. Nigerians know that Festus Keyamo is a committed Buharist, an ardent supporter of the policies and programs of this administration and not a frivolous person.
“He has over time shown commitment in the president’s war on corruption, he has been steadfast in helping to drive home the new culture of transparency the president wants Nigerians to embrace through his numerous media interventions and has proven beyond any iota of doubt that he is ready to give his all for the re-election project of Mr President."
Ohiri, who is also known as NG1Designer, said: “We in One Destiny Organization have no doubt whatsoever that Keyamo will bring his youthfulness in driving the positive narrative of this administration.”
The group further said Amaechi exhibited a high sense of good judgement by appointing Keyamo to lead the strategic communications arm of the campaign, saying that with this appointment, the road to the re-election of President Buhari in 2019 has become smoother.
