Nigeria's Attorney General, Malami, Refuses To Appear Before Salami Panel Despite Subpoena

 Yet, rather than showing up before the board, Malami composed a letter of rebellion to the summon, expressing that he would not show up as an observer. 


The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami (SAN), has neglected to show up before the Presidential Panel researching the suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, in spite of a summon gave to him by the board Chairman, Justice Ayo Salami (retd.) 

Magu is being researched by the board over claims of debasement, which Malami leveled against him. 

The AGF had blamed him for not acting in the general wellbeing of the nation and the strategies of the President Muhammadu Buhari organization because of its bungle and absence of straightforwardness in the treatment of recuperated resources among different claims.

The previous Acting EFCC manager likewise looked for the review of "a few observers who showed up and affirmed before this legal commission of request at that point" he "was not permitted to partake in the procedures and interview such observers". 

He said the solicitations were made in accordance with the soul of reasonable hearing ensured under Section 36 of the Nigerian constitution.

"You are thusly told for the sake of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to show up before the Judicial Commission of Inquiry to give proof in regard of your claims against Mr Ibrahim Magu," part of the summon seen by GazetteerTV read. 

In any case, rather than showing up before the board, Malami composed a letter of noncompliance to the summon, expressing that he would not show up as an observer. 

He pivoted his refusal on the way that he just made charges against Magu dependent on the petitions he got against him in his office. 

The AGF said he would show up before the board whenever brought in accordance with the Buhari organization's regard for the standard of law. 

GazetteerTV review that Malami had during a meeting as of late said he would show up before the board whenever brought in accordance with the Buhari organization's regard for the standard of law. 

He said as boss law official of the nation, he had an obligation to help whatever examination occurring locally or universally. 

He stated, "Thus, the possibility of declaration, the possibility of appearance of the Office of the Attorney-General and for sure with the specific reference to Abubakar Malami before any board, before any council neighborhood and global to help an examination that will see to the foundation and disentangling reality related with an issue viable isn't new. I will not the slightest bit practice any restrictions according to as respecting a greeting to help any request. 

"Along these lines, if Ayo Salami board welcomes Abubakar Malami (SAN) personally or the Attorney-General of the Federation for any declaration or any explanation, for any assessment or interrogation besides, Abubakar Malami will and readily inside the soul and setting of rule of law be there to affirm and will submit myself to be interviewed."
