ThrowBack: See When Festus Keyamo Was Fighting For Peter Obi 

On March 18th, 2005, when the issue of the tenure of a Governor who retrieves his mandate through the judicial process was not settled and when Peter Obi was to be robbed of his full tenure, I went all out to defend him and insisted he must spend his four years in office based on the provisions of the Constitution, even when legendary lawyers like my late boss, Chief Gani Fawehinmi, SAN, SAM, held a different view.

Please, save your money and energy. Let the lawyers do their job.
