The Peoples Democratic Party, Osun State Chapter has carpeted a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Festus Keyamo for insisting that Senator Ademola Adeleke forged his school certificate despite pronouncement by the Election Petition Tribunal and Court of Appeal declaring the qualification of Adeleke to have contested the Osun Governorship election.
The party said Keyamo is not fit to be called a SAN.
The chairman of the party, Hon. Olasoji Adagunodo said for Keyamo to have pretended as if he didn’t hear or know about several court pronouncements on the matter that has been rated as the most publicized case in the history of Nigeria, has put his SANship to question.
“This singular act is enough reason for Nigerians to probe into how Keyamo scaled through integrity questions and how he was awarded the prestigious title of a Senior Advocate of Nigeria,” Adagunodo said.
The party declared as null and void and of no effect the statements credited to Keyamo on his tweeter that “Senator Nurudeen Adeleke forged his school certificate which” he presented to INEC during the September 22nd governorship election in Osun State.
Adagunodo said, “Barrister Festus Keyamo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, has a record of perpetually committing misdemeanor, his defence of President Muhammadu Buhari’s certificate scandal and deliberate negative allusion to the case of Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke is a confirmation that Keyamo speaks from the two sides of his mouth, making efforts to satisfy his clients according to the situation on hand.
“You will not be surprised that the same Keyamo was on Channels TV shortly before the recently concluded presidential election with Senator Dino Melaye, trying to defend jungle justice and extra judicial killing called by President Muhammadu Buhari on ballot box snatchers.
“When President Muhammadu Buhari was taken to court over certificate scandal, APC employed 100 Senior Advocates of Nigeria, SAN, they made sure that the case was not attended to up till today, if they are not hiding anything why did they block the case from seeing the lights of the day. How Nigerians would have wish our President act like Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke who went through the rigours of Legal proceedings in the court of Law to prove his innocence. They think everybody is a criminal like them.
“For those who don’t know the history of Keyamo, his utterances may be a surprise but for some of us who have details of his escapades both Legal and Political, it is meaningless.
“Records have it that Festus Keyamo conned innocent Damola Adebayo, a.k.a. Frayo into making recorded statement which Keyamo edited and gave to the world as a press conference purportedly tagged “confession of the principal suspect in the murder of Chief Ajibola Ige” and that singular act led innocent persons, including the Deputy Governor of Osun State under Chief Bisi Akande into undeserved incarceration. Keyamo came out of that game millions richer only for Chief Bisi Akande to openly confess last year that those prosecuted for the Bola Ige murder were innocent of the allegations against them but Keyamo was used to orchestrate that propaganda.
“Unfortunately, it is appalling that our self styled Mr. Clean allowed a personality like Keyamo to be the spokesperson of his campaign organization means we are into a government of fraudsters.
“Keyamo should be treated as a liar that he presented himself to be.” Adagunodo concluded.
