Nigeria’s Minister of State for Labour and Productivity and foremost social crusade lawyer, Festus Keyamo (SAN) has disclosed that he was never contracted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to help in prosecuting former Governor of Akwa Ibom state and current Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Chief Godswill Akpabio neither was the anti-graft agency ever after the former Senate minority leader.

Festus Keyamo in a series of tweets, stated that Godswill Akpabio has never been charged or arraigned by the EFCC in any court of law for any offence. 

His statement read in parts; 

 “Even without searching on Google the cases I have prosecuted, a simple telephone call as a journalist/writer to the spokesperson of the EFCC would have duly informed you that at no time was I ever engaged by the EFCC to prosecute Senator Godswill Akpabio and I never did.

“All the stories about that have been nothing but social media nonsense. As far as I can recollect, at no time was Senator Godswill Akpabio charged or arraigned by the EFCC in any court of law for any offence.

“So how come I was engaged to prosecute a non-existent charge?”
