FG Declares Bandits as Terrorists

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has explained why he withdrew from Kebbi state governorship race.

This is coming amidst reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has accepted the resignation of some of his cabinet members, after ordering any of his ministers interested in the 2023 general elections to tender their resignation before May 16th.

Malami, while insisting that he has not resigned, said he has withdrawn his ambition to contest the 2023 Kebbi State gubernatorial elections.

This was disclosed in a statement by his media aide, Dr Umar Gwandu.


According to the statement: “Malami has the right to choose to voluntarily shelve his gubernatorial ambition.

“It is a matter of personal conviction and individual right which didn’t violate any law.

“Right thinking members of the society accord respect to individual’s right to freedom of choice in matters relating to this”

As an individual Nigerian citizen with inalienable fundamental rights, Malami said he is not aware of any legally justifiable and reasonable tenable obligations compelling him, a SAN or an Attorney General of the Federation to do otherwise.
