Malami, state AGs refuse to implement report on indicted electoral offenders – NHRC

The National Human Rights Commission on Tuesday expressed concern over the refusal of various government institutions and officers to implement its report recommending the prosecution of some persons who were allegedly involved in the electoral scam that characterised the 2007 and 2011 general elections.

‎The Acting Secretary of the commission, Mrs. Oti Ovrawah, spoke in Abuja during a meeting with some “stakeholders”, including the Nigerian Bar Association and the Independent National Electoral Commission.

She said the commission had submitted the report to the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, as well as the Attorneys-General of various states‎ of the federation for implementation since it was released in August 2016, but no action had been taken on it.
