Friends and associates of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), donated exotic vehicles of assorted brands to loyalists in Kebbi State, his aide, Umar Gwandu, has said.
In a statement sent to The PUNCH on Tuesday, Gwandu said the ministers’ friends also supported his governorship ambition with N135m.
There have been reports and viral photos that the AGF allegedly donated sports utility vehicles of assorted brands to All Progressives Congress politicians in Kebbi but Gwandu said the friends of his principal gifted the vehicles to “long-term workers in the Khadimiyya Foundation”.
Malami, who is from Kebbi, is a two-term member of the cabinet of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) and an APC chieftain. He was recently reported to have declared his intention to succeed Governor Atiku Bagudu of the North-West state in May 2023.
