Politics Forgery Scandal: Nigerian Senate Bashes AGF Malami

#1
The Nigerian Senate says it has been vindicated by a Federal High Court in Abuja presided over by Justice Gabriel Kolawole which described the forgery case filed against its presiding officers as an abuse of court process and a decision taken against public interest.

The Senate, in a statement by its spokesman, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, on Sunday said the ruling further confirmed that Mr. Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) was acting personal and partisan script in filing the charges while simply abusing his position as the nation's chief law officer.

The Senate also called on Malami to address the issue of his personal and pecuniary interest in the case as he was a counsel to the aggrieved Senators who decided to externalise the issue of election of the leadership of the upper chamber of the National Assembly after they failed in their bid to get their preferred candidate elected.

It said Malami was the one who advised his clients to report the matter to the Police and now that he has become AGF, he decided to use his constitutional powers to pursue private interest by filing a criminal case in the FCT High Court against the subsisting ruling of a court of co-ordinate jurisdiction.

The statement concluded by calling on all parties, Mr. Malami, the Attorney General inclusive, to heed the wise, timely and apt advice of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar that "it is time to move on".
