The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami says there was no lawful obstacle on him according to the organization pledges.

This followed judgments trailing the vow he controlled on All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker Chairman and Yobe Governor, Mai Mala Buni at the Presidential Villa, Abuja

The AGF reminded his faultfinders that he is an attorney, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and a lawful specialist.

Malami’s response was contained in an announcement on Saturday by Umar Gwandu, his representative.

The clergyman clarified that his office practices double capacities comprehensive of that of Minister of Justice which is a political and warning capacity.

“Administration of justice is one of such functions”, Malami stated.

He explained that a federation is an embodiment of the governance inclusive of the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary with a possible expansion to accommodate private, corporate and associated entities.

Malami said it would not be out of place for an AGF to administer an oath on any one inclusive of the leadership of any political party whether he belongs to it or not.

“Within the context of the other consideration, a lawyer, a judge and indeed a private legal practitioner and a commissioner for oath are recognized statutorily as people vested with the power to administer an oath.”

He said the inquiry that asks for an answer remains whether there exists any lawful hindrance on the AGF and Minister of Justice corresponding to the organization of promise being an attorney and a SAN.

Malami reestablished his promise to releasing sacred obligations of maintaining the vote based culture and consistence with the standard of law.
