Spokesperson of the Buhari Reelection Organisation, Festus Keyamo (SAN), has acknowledged that President Muhammadu Buhari deserves reward over his dealing with of the Abdulrasheed Maina saga.
Speaking with The Interview Magazine, the Senior Advocate of Nigeria mentioned he would use the controversial reinstatement and dismissal of Maina to marketing campaign for the president in 2019.
Keyamo mentioned: “Where are all these individuals now? Are they in workplace? Deziani, of all story of sleaze, did she not stay in workplace until the top?
“People shouldn’t make foolish feedback within the public. The Head of Service, the Attorney common of the Federation, together with the Minister of Internal affairs, all of them appeared earlier than the National Assembly.
“They advised us in graphic phrases, how these memos have been raised. And these memos moved from one workplace to the opposite. All of those memos from HoS to SGF, minister to AGF, all of those, was there one to the chief of employees to the president? We shouldn’t be pessimistic or cynical for nothing. All of those memos that moved up and down, was there one to the president earlier than the HoS was queried?
“…When there have been experiences that Maina had been recalled, it took the president lower than 24hrs to order his sack. So, what’s the criticisms; that the second it grew to become clear, it took lower than 24hrs to sack him? So, I cannot need to dance to the tune of the opposition that can hold repeating a sing tune hundred instances and make individuals imagine the sing tune.
“Maina cannot, by any stretch of imagination, be a point of criticism to the president. For me, the Maina saga is credit to the president. The Maina saga, I will use it to campaign. You will use it to criticise but I will use it to campaign. That is because the man reacted to issue of corruption and back-door handling of an issue when it came to his knowledge.”
