Festus Keyamo declares governorship ambition

HUMAN rights activist and lawyer, Mr. Festus Keyamo, Monday, unveiled his interest to contest the 2015 governorship elections in Delta State, saying it was time to unshackle the state from the dynasty of thieves.

He spoke in Effurun at the maiden meeting of the Delta Forces United, a political platform, which he is using to mobilize Deltans for his ambition.

Contacted, Wednesday, Mr. Keyamo said, "My mission is to take Deltans out of the present state of underdevelopment."

A political activist, Monday Akpokene, who attended the meeting told Vanguard, "Keyamo did not mince words in condemning what he regarded as politics of cronyism, ethnicity and underdevelopment in the state and  declared that time has come for the citizens to be liberated from the dynasty of thieves that has been created over the years in Delta State.".

 "He pointed out that there has not been much to show for the 14 years of the People Democratic Party, PDP, governance in the state other than a legacy of primitive accumulation and godfatherism, while the masses continue to live in abject poverty with little infrastructural development of the state," my source said.

He said the activist vowed at the meeting to live the rest of his life for the betterment of Delta state, as Deltans, had been held hostage, over time,  by members of a cabal, which does not see any other candidate as having the right qualities to govern. -Vanguard
