EFCC: Wordings of invitation Magu panel sent to me unconstitutional – Malami

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, says his non-appearance at Justice Ayo Salami-led panel probing the suspended Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, was constitutional.

Malami said this in a statement by his spokesman, Umar Gwandu, on Thursday.

The AGF criticized the “terms and wordings” of the letter of invitation.

Gwandu said establishing propriety or otherwise of the presence Malami, whose responsibility is to hold constitutional order, lies within the constitutional provisions.

“The terms and wordings of invitation extended to the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice to Justice Ayo Panel of Inquiry against Magu runs contrary to the constitutional provisions.

“The Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice is by the provision of the Constitution and extant laws empowered to serve supervisory role.

“In the case of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice has been discharging the role effectively,” the statement read.
