Abubakar Malami, Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, on Thursday said that he will not resign from office.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Malami rather said he will see out his tenure, in May 2023.
Malami made this vow during his keynote address at a conference organised by the National Association of Judiciary Correspondents.
“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 (FEC) 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,” he said.
Rumours are rife that Malami will contest for the governorship seat of Kebbi State in 2023, but the 54-year-old has not declared his intention in that respect.
