Abubakar Malami, Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, has hinted that the Federal Government may consider political solution to the self-determination agitations in the country.

Malami spoke in an interview with journalists in Abuja on Wednesday on the pardon granted to Boko Haram insurgents. 

Responding to a question on whether the Federal Government was not considering political solution to the separatist agitations for Biafra and Yoruba Nation as canvassed by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Chief Sunday Adeyemo,  also known as Igboho, respectively, the AGF said such consideration was not yet on the table but added that the government would be averse to it.

He said: “As far as the security situation is concerned and as far as governance and this administration is concerned, you cannot rule out all possibilities. But then, there has to be an approach for government to consider.

“We will look into it (approach) to look at its weight, the authenticity of it, the good faith associated with it and then bring about the considerable factors relating to the negotiations or otherwise.

“So, it is not a conclusion that one can outrightly make without juxtaposing associated facts relating to the reconciliation; there has to be an approach and then a counter consideration.”
