Upon resumption on Thursday, Keyamo declared that he is prepared and ready to experience his new position as minister of state for Niger Delta.
He further disclosed that he would henceforth not be in charge of his law firm, as he embarks on the short leave of absence from law practice.
Keyamo disclosed this on his official Twitter page.
He wrote: “Arrived my new office punctually this morning, which is key to motivate the workforce. It is a new challenge which I always wanted to experience.
“Whilst my law offices continue to run at full throttle with capable hands, I take this short leave of absence to serve my fatherland.”
