I Did Not Cast Aspersion On The Igbos Or Any Tribe – Malami

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami (SAN), has stated that he did not write and has never contemplated writing or posting any derogatory remark or cast aspersion on any tribe or section of the multi-cultural and diverse communities in the country.

In a statement issued by Umar Gwandu, his Special Assistant on Media, and Public Relations on Tuesday, Gwandu while refuting claims from some quarters that he authored a derogatory post on Igbos, emphasized that Malami is known to be a patriotic Nigerian and non-tribal partisan who believes in equality, fairness and justice to all regardless of any inclination to tribe, location or gender.

According to Gwandu, the grammatical flaws, apparent illogicalities, and divisionary tendencies as well as lack of respect to diversity in humanity makes it palpably incongruous to believe that the post was from Malami.

“The office of the Attorney -General of the Federation and Minister of Justice calls on the public to disregard the post.

” It is created and circulated by mischief makers and purveyors of hatred who are bent on destroying the hard-earned reputation of the minister,” Gwandu said.

He added that it was instructive to note that fact-check conducted by some media organizations proved that attributing the derogatory post to Malami was not only defamatory but also fictitious.
