Buhari Breaches No Law Over Naira Design — Malami

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, on Thursday, said that President Muhammadu Buhari has not acted in breach on the case instituted at the Supreme Court by some state governors over the naira swap deadline.

The Malami said as far as the rule of law is concerned, there are many options available.

This is just as the Federal Government has said that the fate of state governors and other individuals being investigated for alleged treasonable utterances over the naira redesign will be determined by the security agencies involved
The government also said that it was only few individuals that are promoting the interest of some persons that may have gotten their wealth illegally and looted public funds, which they intend to use to influence the electorate in the forthcoming elections.

Malami stated this while appearing on the ministerial media briefing organized by the Presidential Communications Team at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Fielding question on the position in some quarters that the utterances of the governors was tantamount to treason, the AGF affirmed that investigation cannot be ruled out, adding that the relevant security agencies will determine if there will be the need for further action.

Malami stressed the importance of the redesign policy, which he said will enable citizens to assume collective ownership of the electoral system rather than allowing a few moneybags to take charge.

He also said the policy is designed to allow freedom of choice and also fight corruption.

Speaking extensively on the benefits of electoral reforms, Malami said it was only the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration that had exercised the political will to enhance democratic practice through legislative, political and administrative interventions.
