Malami Maintains He Has Nothing To Do With Alleged $2.4b Crude Oil Theft
Malami says the investigation has nothing to do with his office and personality.
News Agency of Nigeria
The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, has dismissed his involvement in the House of Representatives Committee investigation of alleged oil loss of over $2.4 billion in oil revenue.
The oil revenue is from the illegal sales of 48 million barrels of crude oil exported in 2015, including crude oil exports from 2014 to date.
He said the committee’s investigative hearing was unnecessary because it had nothing to do with his office and personality.
The committee had severally invited the minister, which was not honored; this, however, led the committee to reissue a summon against the Minister on May 24.
Rep. Mark Gbillah, the chairman of the committee, said the minister was invited for him to shed light on topical issues concerning his office’s involvement regarding receipt authorization and general payment remitted over the subject matter.
Malami had earlier claimed that the matter raised by the whistleblower leading to his involvement was baseless and lacking in substance.
Reacting, Malami said he was not privy to any documents involving him, adding that the Auditor General of the Federation had not also made documents available to him or his office.
