PDP abusing freedom of speech, says AGF Malami

Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of “taking the freedom of speech too far”.

The AGF was reacting to the allegations that he was involved in a plot to cause constitutional crisis in Rivers State.

The PDP had alleged that Malami and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, were pressuring the Supreme Court to reverse the nullification of the primaries of Rivers chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC).

The court had upheld the verdict of the trial court that excluded the APC from participating in the general election that held in the state, ruling that the APC did not conduct credible primary elections.

But fielding questions from State House Correspondents on the outcome of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, on Wednesday,  Malami said, “the PDP has taken freedom of speech too far.”

He said unless otherwise proven in court that he is involved in the act, the allegation will remain an accusation.

“Regarding what was leveled against me by PDP, I think it remains an accusation. It has to remain so until proven through a judicial process.

“But for me I think it is freedom of speech that has been taken too far,” the AGF concluded.
