Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), said he won’t resign from office, noting that he will end his tenure gloriously by May 2023.
He spoke on Thursday in Abuja during his keynote address at a conference organised by the National Association of Judiciary Correspondents.
The AGF debunked media reports that he had resign from office, while he urged media practitioners to be factual in their reportage.
The justice minister also called for prosecution of journalists used by mischievous politicians.
Malami said, “It is high time that we enhance media literacy for Nigerians to appreciate fact-checking and verification of information.
“Many who relied on some unprofessional information disseminators will be taken aback that the Malami that was claimed to have resigned as Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice was still seen in office discharging his functions including attending the Federal Executive Council meeting yesterday, granting interviews to journalists and still today declaring this conference open as the Attorney General of the Federation.
“There is naturally an end to everything. My tenure in office has not yet ended. I pray for a glorious end.”
Malami,54 is one of the prominent cabinet members in the Admistration of President Muhammadu Buhari since 2015.
He is said to be highly regarded by the President who reportedly seeks his legal advice on major national matters. Buhari’s high estimation of Malami was confirmed last year when the President during an interview refused to “contradict his attorney general”.
