The House of Representatives on Thursday summoned the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami to explain manipulation of the Code of Conduct Tribunal case involving the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
According to the reps, this is in a bid to save the justice system in Nigeria from manipulation. This is coming few days after the EFCC filed criminal charges against Chairman of the Tribunal, Mr. Danladi Umar, in a move Senate President, Bukola Saraki, described as “maneuvers, manipulation, intrigues, schemes” to witch-hunt him.
The House through a motion promoted by the Minority Whip, Yakubu Barde, PDP, Kaduna, entitled: ‘Need To Ensure Sanity In The Legal Administration of Justice System in The Fight Against Corruption in Nigeria By the AGF’ was overwhelmingly supported by the lawmakers.
Yakubu Barde who led the debate observed that “the AGF is instrumental to this unwholesome saga playing out in our administration of justice system.”
