PRESS RELEASE BY FESTUS KEYAMO CHAMBERS

KEYAMO VOWS TO APPEAL COURT DISMISSAL OF SUIT TO COMPEL INVESTIGATION OF ATIKU OVER SPV SAGA

Earlier today, a Federal High Court in Abuja dismissed the case filed by Festus Keyamo, SAN, CON, against the candidate of the PDP in the last Presidential Election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar over the SPV saga principally because the Court was of the opinion that the law enforcement agencies were not given enough time to commence investigations before the suit was filed, amongst other sundry reasons.

Our client respectfully disagrees with the reasons for the said decision because the law enforcement agencies did not indicate their willingness to commence investigations, even if they were given more time. 

We want to establish a legal principle that the society cannot wait ad infinitum for law enforcement agencies to do their statutory duties. 

The suit was designed to prompt the agencies to show their READINESS to investigate. 

We are immediately filing an appeal against the said decision to the Court of Appeal as the struggle on this issue continues.
