Secret Memo: I Cannot Work Against Constitutional Democracy, Says Malami

The office of the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, SAN, has debunked false report making the rounds, alleging that he sent a secret memo to President Muhammadu Buhari, urging him to move swiftly to suspend the fundamental rights of all Nigerians as guaranteed by the Constitution of Nigeria.

A statement by his media aide, Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu read: “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.

The statement asked the general public to disregard the media report, and to see it as “fabrications of anti-constitutional democratic stability in Nigeria.”

Dr. Umar said that Malami remains a true democrat who believes in rule of law and tenets of democracy and constitutional order.

He emphasised that the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice is a constitutionally recognised one,  with its roles 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,” he stated.
