“I’m always guided by law and public interest” – Malami on Maina’s Reinstatement



"I am always guided by law and public interest" - Malami on Maina's Reinstatement - BellaNaija

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami has broken his silence on his reported reinstatement of wanted former pension boss Abdulrasheed Maina.

Maina who has been declared wanted by the EFCC since 2013 was reinstated and promoted to the position of Director in the Human Resources Department of the Ministry of Interior.

Malami, speaking to Vanguard, said he will be giving a full statement when he appears before the Senate who had summoned him.

He said he is a lawyer who is “always guided by the law and public interest.” He said:

I am a legal practitioner, who is always guided by law and public interest and will therefore not do anything that deviates from the law or breaches public interest.

I believe that Nigerians are entitled to know the truth in the entire saga and I am ready to speak directly to them when I appear before the Senate since I have been summoned by the legislature, which is investigating the matter.

I will not however talk until I get clearance from my principal on the matter and I look forward to addressing anxious Nigerians on the matter when I appear before the Senators.

    We really need to be addressed because this is just pathetic, a man steals nd absconds from public nd federal eye and comes back and he is givn a position and even promoted?
    If the case is on trial should he not be laid off form his duty post? Why is he stil working ?
    Guided by public interest my foot, Nigerians we really need to stop focusing on Mr Eazi and the likes and put all that energy on this our politicians they are really messing with us.

    This bastard should use acid to wash his mouth. NBA please disbar him. Public interest my foot…oh oh, maybe he meant Cabal interest…well what do you expect from a half baked foolish stooge. Someonestole directly from public pension (people’s sweat). You not only protected him, you fought magu to release his fraud files after maina had shared the 100billion with you. Magu refused. You gave him police and sss protection, a common Asst director 25 police men. If this is not dereliction of duty he owed the nigerian people by the AGF I don’t know what is? He has lost all credibility. Malami should Be investigated and charged. Buhari should be impeached.
