The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami has come out to say that he never urged Buhari to suspend the 1999 Constitution and declare martial law in the country.

He recently revealed this via a statement that was signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Dr. Umar Gwandu.

According to him, he never gave such legal advice, and the reports are nothing but false and fictitious.

He added that he remains a democrat that believes in the rule of law, tenents of democracy and constitutional order.

His words, “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.”
