The former Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo SAN, has vowed to challenge the judgement of the Court of Appeal dismissing his suit for the investigation of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar over SPV saga.
The Assistant Head of Keyamo Chambers, Abuja Office, John Ainetor, Esq. in a statement noted that “a Federal High Court in Abuja dismissed the case filed by Festus Keyamo, SAN, against the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (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.
The Assistant Head of Chambers declared: “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 as 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.”
