Abubakar Malami (SAN), the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, has stated that he will not retire from office but rather will see his tenure come to a “glorious finish” by May 2023.
He disputed allegations that he resigned from office during his keynote talk at a conference organized by the National Association of Judiciary Correspondents in Abuja on Thursday, March 17.
Malami said: “It is high time that we enhance media literacy for Nigerians to appreciate fact-checking and verification of information.
“Many who relied on some unprofessional information disseminators will be taken aback that the Malami that was claimed to have resigned as Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice was still seen in office discharging his functions including attending the Federal Executive Council meeting yesterday, granting interviews to journalists and still today declaring this conference open as the Attorney General of the Federation.
“There is naturally an end to everything. My tenure in office has not yet ended. I pray for a glorious end.”
