The Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) reacted Wednesday to a letter written by a U.S Senator alleging witch-hunt in Nigeria’s fight against corruption.
Malami said allegations that the fight is being used for political witch-hunting are unfounded, baseless and devoid of factual proof.
The Federal government’s fight against corruption in the country is impartial, objective and non-discriminatory, said a statement by his media aide, Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu.
“The evidence on the ground establishes that the Federal Government’s operations in the fight against corruption are carried out without fear or favor,” Malami said.
Malami noted that the efforts to have a corrupt-free Nigeria are devoid of any political inclinations as recent convictions recorded were against the members of All Progressives Congress (APC).
