The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN)

BY ANKELI EMMANUEL, Sokoto –

The Attorney General of the Federation amd Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami has been accused of playing numerous roles in a deliberate effort to destabilize the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Sokoto State.

Expressing their disappointment with Malami’s open endorsement of one of the factional leader of the party in Sokoto on Sunday, Hon Isa Sadiq Achida wondered why someone of the Attorney General’s caliber could go so low as doing the biddings of those who never meant well for the party in the State.

Addressing a press conference at the State APC Secretariat on Monday, Achida, who is also laying claim to the State Chairmanship of the party inferred that, the Minister of Justice is not fit to hold such an office, hence appealing to President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently remove him to avoid further damage to the party amd country’s judicial system.

Reacting in a statement titled, “Abubabar Malami and Ibrahim Shekarau On A Mission To Destabilize Sokoto APC”, Hon. Achida decried that the Attorney General, Abubakar Malami is a course rather than an asset to the APC.

The statement read in part, “We in the Sokoto State Chapter of the All Progressive Congress APC, deem it important to correct the wrong impression being created by the two political wanderers that came to Sokoto on the 27th of February, 2022. These two politicians, are non other than Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, a serving Senator of the Federal Republic, and Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice.”

While noting that their mission in Sokoto was dead on arrival, Hon Achida insisted that no gang up or unholy alliance of political mischief makers, can destroy the APC in Sokoto State.

Hon Achida who wondered why the Attorney General, Malami should openly comment on an issue that is before the Appeal Court, noted that, he must have instructed the Court to do his biddings which they are sure will not materialize at the long run.

“By this singular act of recognising a faction of the APC in Sokoto State, having known that the matter is still pending before the Court of Appeal, he has breached the sanctity of the Constitution and his oath of office, which requires him not to allow his personal interest to influence his official conduct or official decisions. The oath of office also requires him to do right to all manner of people, without fear or favour, affection of ill-will”.

Having gone contrary to this provision, Hon Sadiq Achida therefore called on the National Chairman of the APC to expel the Attorney General, Abubakar Malami SAN from the party because of the numerous roles he played in destabilizing the APC in Sokoto, Kano, Kebbi, Zamfara amd Kwara States among others.

“Indeed, Abubakar Malami is a course rather than an asset to the APC and earlier he is cut to size, the better for our great party”.
