Confused Keyamo Dumps Guber Ambition, Goes for Senatorial Seat Under APC

Festus Keyamo

LAGOS AUGUST 14TH (URHOBOTODAY)-A Lagos-based lawyer, Mr. Festus Keyamo, has revealed his ambition to contest the Delta Central Senatorial seat on the platform of the recently registered All Progressives Congress (APC).
Keyamo, who had initially nursed governorship ambition, yesterday explained in a statement made available to journalists why he is contesting the senatorial seat. It will be recalled that the seat became vacant following the death of the lawmaker representing Delta Central, Senator Pius Ehwerido.
The rights activist, however, denied that he had abandoned his governorship ambition for the senatorial seat. He said: “After the launch of the Delta Forces United, it became public speculation that I was interested in the governorship race in Delta State come 2015.
Of course, I had my eyes on the governorship race while I was mobilising the Delta Forces United to join the APC, and that, undeniably, still remains my ultimate goal. I will never abandon that goal.
“However, the journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. And he, who is great in smaller things, will be greater in bigger things. In this regard, the senatorial seat presents a unique and humble opportunity for me to bring to bear my enduring enthusiasm and skills for the supreme benefit of my people in public office, and to set the tone for the quality of leadership that is to come. That is why I am running for the vacant seat in Delta Central. And if the people give me a pass mark, they will eventually decide whether to push me forward or withdraw me from the governorship race.”
