Festus Keyamo, the spokesperson for the Presidential Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress, has been demanded to be fired by the Peoples Democratic Party for allegedly abusing his position.

At the party’s press conference in Abuja, the PDP made this statement via the spokesperson for the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, Daniel Bwala.

The PDP said Keyamo “is using the official privilege and powers of that office to intimidate the agencies of the government including going to court and filing a case against the agents of the same branch of government to which he belongs.”

The PDP was responding to Keyamo’s demand that Atiku Abubakar be investigated for alleged incidents of corruption.

Saying Keyamo was using his office to intimidate the agencies of the Federal Government, Bwala said, “We hereby call on President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the minister for abusing the privilege that he has.”

Keyamo had requested last week that the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, and other anti-graft organizations look into allegations of corruption against PDP front-runner Atiku.

Keyamo was allegedly utilizing taxpayer funds for personal gain, according to the PDPPCC.

Other significant members of the Atiku-Okowa campaign council were present at the press conference, including Dele Momodu, who underlined that it was the first of several press conferences the party planned to have.

The PDP also requested that Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, be investigated for alleged drug-related offenses by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency and the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control.
