Keyamo reacts as people query his absence in the legal team recently released by the APC.

The Official Spokesperson for the All Progressive Congress (APC) 2023 Presidential Campaign Council and Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo has reacted to queries by some of his followers on why he is not part of the legal team drawn out to defend the mandate of his principal and president-elect of the 2023 presidential elections, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in court, as he is also a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

The Minister who reacted to the queries on his verified Twitter handle said:

"For those making inquiries, a serving Minister (by our constitution) cannot be listed in any private legal team, though he/she can support the team in preparation.

"Hence, the present cabinet Ministers who are SANs can only formally join the election petition team after May 29th".

Recall the APC recently released a list of SAN to defend the mandate of Bola Ahmed Tinubu in court. However Keyamo's name was not present in the list despite him being a SAN

Below is the document released by the APC, showing the SANs chosen to represent Bola Tinubu's mandate in court.
