I authorised FG appeal against Saraki’s acquittal, says AGF

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, on Wednesday debunked insinuations that he was not committed to the anti-corruption war.

He said his total commitment to the war against corruption informed his decision to authorise the filing of an appeal against the judgment of the Code of Conduct Tribunal which acquitted the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, of all 18 charges of false asset declaration preferred against the former Kwara State governor.

The AGF, through a private prosecuting counsel, Mr. Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), and a lawyer in the AGF office had on Tuesday filed 11 grounds notice of appeal against the acquittal, describing the CCT’s judgment as unreasonable.

The AGF spoke on Wednesday through a statement co-signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Salihu Isah and the Special Assistant to the President on Prosecution (AGF Office), Mr. Okoi Obono-Obla.
