A former Senate President, Adolphus Wabara has demanded
that President Muhammadu Buhari should sack the Attorney-
General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice,
According to Wabara, Malami is an embarrassment to the
administration of President Buhari and doesn’t deserve to hold
Wabara spoke against the backdrop of a recent submission
by Malami that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra
(IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, cannot be pardoned when he hasn’t
been convicted by a competent court of law.
Malami stated on Wednesday that it is too early to talk about
pardoning Kanu because the pro-Biafra activist is still in
court standing trial for treasonable felony and acts of
Oniftv reports that Kanu is facing an amended 7-count
charge bordering on treasonable felony and acts of terrorism
which were brought against him by the Federal Government
after his re-arrest and repatriation to Nigeria in June this year.
However, the former Senate President in his reaction said
Malami is speaking with arrogant ignorance and arrogating
powers that don’t belong to him to himself.
He argued that left to him, Malami would have been shown
the exit door and therefore called on President Buhari to sack
the AGF from his cabinet.
He said on Thursday: “Malami is the most confused, if not
the most unlearned Attorney General of the Federation that
Nigeria has ever had.
“He has embarrassed this government enough that if Mr.
President were not distracted, the likes of Malami won’t be in
“Mr. President is focused on so many things but time has
come for him to address the issue of Malami. What has he not
done to embarrass this government? The other time, he was
proposing a state of emergency in Anambra outside the
knowledge of Mr. President!
“In civilized climes, Malami would have been asked to take
the back seat. If I were the President, I won’t have the likes
of Malami in my cabinet.”
Senator Wabara accused the AGF/Minister of attempting to
twist the words of Mr. President who had promised a
delegation of Igbo leaders who visited him in Aso-Rock that
he would consider their difficult request for the leader of the
proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu
to be set free.
