Sallah: Malami Calls For Peaceful Co-existence Amongst Nigerians
Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, has called on Nigerians to live peacefully with one another.
He said that was the gateway to a prosperous nation.
Malami , who observed Eid prayers in Birnin-Kebbi, the Kebbi State capital, rejoiced with the Muslim faithful across the world on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Adha.
This was contained in a statement on Friday by the Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Office of the AGF and Minister of Justice, Umar Jibrilu Gwandu.
“The period of Eid of sacrifices comes with numerous lessons, including sincerity, honesty, commitment, sacrifice, selflessness, introspection and empathy, among others”, Malami stressed.
He also urged all Muslims to be a blessing to their neighbours this season and beyond.
However, he emphasised on the need for strict compliance with the Covid-19 public health advisory.
Furthermore, the AGF maintained that the anti-corruption drive of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration would not be deterred by constant media attacks on his personality.
As such, he assured that the justice ministry would ensure that the rule of law reigned in every facet of the Nigerian project, so as to establish sustainable development.
His statement further reads, “I think that is the burden of leadership; who ever is appointed a leader, by God grace, it is only natural that in one way or the other one must be attacked.
“The good one has been doing can hardly be seen when one remains in office
“It has been a common tradition for people to attack the President, Governors and those in the helm of affairs or in leadership position and responsibility. I cannot, certainly, be an exception.
“The good thing about it, our Constitution is clear, our law is clear where exist impunity and how can it be best handled and addressed.
“It is not about attack on personalities; it is about compliance with the law. We are there to fight impunity.
“The bottom line is whether in the fight against impunity we are working in line and in tune with the law.”
