Min­is­ters: Malami de­fends self

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Garba Muham­mad, Birnin Kebbi

Min­is­te­rial nom­i­nee for Kebbi State, Abubakar Malami SAN, has de­fended his nom­i­na­tion by Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari.

Some in­di­genes had com­plained of his nom­i­na­tion on the grounds that he was from the same lo­cal gov­ern­ment area with the in­cum­bent gover­nor, Atiku Bagudu.

Malami was among the first list of nom­i­nees who have been screened and cleared by the Sen­ate.

Speak­ing on phone, Malami said his nom­i­na­tion can­not be faulted based on is­sues re­lat­ing to where he comes from.

“It is true as you rightly ob­served, I am from the same LGA and zone with the gover­nor. In fact, we come from the same Birnin Kebbi town, even though I am from Nasarawa 1 ward, while the gover­nor is from Nasarawa 2 ward.”
