President Muhammadu Buhari has been asked to stop wasting time and urgently sack the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, over the role he played in the reinstatement of former chairman of Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Mr. Abdulrasheed Maina.
The call was made by the League of Patriotic Lawyers during a briefing with newsmen on Monday. The chairman of the group, Mr. Abubakar Yesufu, said that President Buhari has to salvage the fight against corruption by sacking Malami without any further delay.
He said, “The league wonders why it took this long for the Attorney General and Minister of Justice to name and shame the beneficiaries of pension scam. As the chief law officer of the federation, Malami owes us a duty to reveal the list of this pension scam. For refusing to reveal the beneficiaries of this humongous crime against our helpless pensioners, the Attorney General has not done well.
“Neither the reference to Goodluck Jonathan’s complicity which is doubtful, nor a reference to a ‘Lagos Lawyer’ who purchased a property validly can assuage our call for the resignation of the Attorney General.
“Failing to resign, the league advised the President to give him the boot without wasting time.”
