I’m A Pro-Constitutional Democrat, Malami

The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami has dismissed as untrue the recent report of a “fictitious memo” allegedly emanating from him to the Presidency on the need to suspend the constitution .

He said this in a statement signed by Umar Gwandu, Special Assistant to the Minister on Media and Public Relations and made available to newsmen in Abuja.

See full statement below :

“The attention of the Office of the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami,SAN has been drawn to a false and fictitious report alleging that there was a secret memo emanating from the Office to the Presidency.

“General publics are hereby asked to disregard the media report as fabrications of anti-constitutional democratic stability in Nigeria.

“Malami remains a true democrat who believes in rules of law and tenant of democracy and Constitutional order.

“The Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice is a constitutionally recognised one with its role and responsibilities embedded in the constitution.

“It is antithetical to common sense to think that the holder of such coveted Office as the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice will stoop to what was printed by the media.

“The Government does not operate in secrecy as it is not a clandestine operation. Hence, Malami discharges his constitutionally recognized mandates in compliance with principles of transparency, openness and accountability.”
