Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State, Labour and Employment, has said that he is ready to go to jail if Atiku wins the forthcoming presidential election because of his petition against him

 

 

 

Recall that Keyamo petitioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), and the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) a day prior, pleading with them to detain and charge Atiku with corruption. The anti-graft organizations were given a 72-hour deadline to respond to his plea.
