On Tuesday, media outlets reported that Lagos lawyer and popular human rights activist, Festus Keyamo(SAN) has been appointed as the director of strategic communications for President Buhari’s reelection campaign.
Keyamo is now trending on Twitter as a barrage of criticisms follow the appointment. Many Nigerians are disappointed in the radical lawyer for getting involved with the politicians he is supposed to caution.

Nigerian Advocacy is a financial hustle. If you feel let down by Festus Keyamo then perhaps you just landed on Earth….welcome Alien I'd love to take you to our leader but we ain't got one

Festus Keyamo, like many "activists" of his generation, is a hustler.
I knew, as far back as 10 years ago, that he was a hustler.
So I am not surprised.
Many June 12 activists were hustlers (I said many, not all).
This is Nigeria, this stuff no longer surprises me.

Festus Keyamo is a human rights activist. How can a human right activist be the spokesman of a president who couldn't stop herdsmen killing, who unlawfully detained Shiites leader, who couldn't initiate/complete a project.
Keyamo is Osinabajo's brother, all for selfish interest.
