The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami (SAN) has rejected claims that he is plotting to cause constitutional crisis in Rivers State.
Recall that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had accused Malami of working with the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, to nullify the result of the March 9, governorship election in Rivers state.
Responding to the allegation, Malami’s media aide, Salihu Isah, said PDP’s claims against his principal were ridiculous, and as such demanded that the AGF should not be linked with the local politics in Rivers State.
“We are in a democracy, and there are institutions with powers to void elections if the need arises. That is not part of the responsibilities of the Attorney General of the Federation.
“So, they should not link him (the AGF) with such ridiculous claim. They should leave the AGF out of the local politics in Rivers State.
“There are better and more important issues to attract the attention of the minister,” Isah told Nation newspaper.
