Having armed himself with a Law degree from Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma, Delta state, young Festus Keyamo, seemed to have a clear vision of his dream that he wasted no time to relocate to Lagos where he went under the tutelage of late human right lawyer, Chief Gani Fawehinmi. Twenty four months after joining Gani Fawehinimi Chambers, he left to put up his own chambers. Just like his boss, his love to fight for human right that brought about his outspoken nature in no time singled him out for relevance among his peers that he started getting noticed here and there. As time went by, Keyamo became popular and controversial as he got involved with some controversial and high profile briefs.
The city lawyer and EFCC prosecutor, Festus, over the years has grown bigger as far as the legal profession is concern and has recorded so much accomplishment that all he needed to achieve was to be elevated to the height of a Senior Advocate of Nigeria. Expectedly, he has put in for the category of SAN but got denied severally, but yet did not give up on the pursuit. At the moment, the fearless amiable dude is in great mood as his long term dream has eventually been achieved. News hit town few days ago that the Delta born high profile lawyer was named among the thirty other lawyers who were shortlisted by to be elevated to the position of Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, by The Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee, LPPC. Come 18TH of September, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onneghen , will swear in Festus Keyamo alongside his fellow SANs.
