There's “a grand conspiracy and mischief" against me - Malami says as he defends his role in Maina's recall, promotion

Abubakar Malami (SAN), Attorney General of the Federation and minister of justice, has said that he acted in public interest in recommending the recall and promotion of Abdulrasheed Maina.

The Justice Minister made the comment during an interview with the Vanguard newspapers on Tuesday, October 24.

The minister however said he would rather respond to the avalanche of allegations against him when he formally appears before the Senate, which had summoned him to speak on his role in the entire issue.

He described the allegations made against him as “a grand conspiracy and mischief,” but declined to mention anyone's name.

“I am a legal practitioner, who is always guided by law and public interest and will therefore not do anything that deviates from the law or breaches public interest. 

“I believe that Nigerians are entitled to know the truth in the entire saga and I am ready to speak directly to them when I appear before the Senate since I have been summoned by the legislature, which is investigating the matter. 

“I will not however talk until I get clearance from my principal on the matter and I look forward to addressing anxious Nigerians on the matter when I appear before the senators,” Malami said.
