Festus Keyamo appointed as Buhari 2019 presidential campaign spokesperson, Amaechi confirmed as DG

It has been confirmed that the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has indeed been appointed as the Director-General of President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation for the 2019 presidential election has surfaced.

This confirmation came in a statement issued on Tuesday by the Secretary of the campaign organisation, Mohammed Dattijo, which also announced the appointment of Festus Keyamo SAN, as the Director, Strategic Communications, (Official Spokesperson) of the Buhari Campaign Organisation.




Recall that there were reports as at January 2018 that Amaechi, a former governor of Rivers state, has been issued letter of appointment as the Director-General of Buhari’s 2019 election campaign.

Shortly after the news broke, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina dismissed the report as mere rumour, stating as at then that his principal has not decided on running for the election.  But the President as at last week Monday before proceeding to London announced his decision to seek a second term in office.


The appointment of Amaechi, who had served in the same capacity for the 2015 election, seems to have been done quietly.

This is on the strength of the letter announcing Keyamo’s new role which was signed by Amaechi as “The Director General” of the President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation.

Keyamo has been an ardent defender of the current administration.

The statement reads, “Kindly find attached the letter from President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation appointing Mr. Festus Keyamo, SAN, and Fellow of Chartered Institute of Arbitration, United Kingdom as the Director, Strategic Communications (Official Spokesperson) for the President’s 2019 presidential campaigns.

The President had earlier last week declared his intention to run in the 2019 presidential election.

Meanwhile, Keyamo has reacted to his appointment as the Official Spokesperson for President Buhari 2019 presidential campaign.

Keyamo, in a tweet confirmed his appointment, adding that he will make an official statement later.

He wrote, “With this letter below, I have just been appointed the Director, Strategic Communications (Official Spokesperson) for the President’s 2019 Presidential Campaigns.

” I will be making a formal statement on this much later.”
