Sack Of Service Chiefs: I’m Vindicated-Keyamo

Lagos lawyer, Festus Keyamo says he has been vindicated by the sack of the Service Chiefs by President Goodluck Jonathan in compliance to a court’s judgment.

Keyamo had last week issued the president 14-day ultimatum to sack the service chiefs in compliance of a court’s judgment, threatening to head back to court to enforce compliance.
The Federal High Court in the case of Festus Keyamo Vs. President and 4 others, had declared the previous appointments of the service chiefs null and void.

Less than one week after Keyamo’s threat, Jonathan on Thursday sacked the service chiefs and re-appointed new ones which followed the due process.

Ihejirika as Chief of Army Staff. Read the rest of the story @ The African Examiner
