The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has extended an invitation to Barrister Festus Keyamo, SAN as it is set to commence an investigation of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar over the diversion of public funds allegation whilst he was Vice-President of Nigeria through ‘Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV)’.
Festus Keyamo Chambers revealed this on Thursday in a press release signed by John Ainetor, Asst. Head of Chambers, and forwarded to National Watch.
“The Bureau has invited our client Mr. Festus Keyamo to come forward to adopt his petition and to help it to secure the presence of the whistleblower, Mr. Michael Achimugu to assist in the investigation.
“Mr. Keyamo assures that the crusade for accountability in respect of this issue was not a campaign gimmick as he promises to follow it through to a logical conclusion, even after the victory of the President-Elect, ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” the chambers said.
Barrister Keyamo had petitioned the CCB to probe Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate in the just concluded 2023 general elections, following the revelation by Atiku’s former lawyer, Michael Achimugu, alleging financial malfeasance during the former’s reign as Vice President.
