Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to order the immediate probe of Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami.

Sagay said Malami’s role in the return of former Chairman of the Presidential Task Team on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, was disappointing.

“As the attorney general, you met a fugitive who is wanted for a very heinous crime of depriving thousands of elderly people of their rights.

“You don’t, for any reason, go to hold discussions with such a person”, he told Punch.

“Your job should be to extradite and try him. He compromised himself by meeting with him.

“He says he didn’t write any letter regarding the reinstatement of Maina but the letter emanated from his ministry. So, let the President investigate the attorney general.”

Sagay, however, agreed with Malami that the Senate was being overzealous by probing his role in the Maina scandal.

“I think the Senate is overzealous in its approach. It investigates everything and in the end, we hardly see anything. I think it is spending too much time setting up sub-committees to investigate everything.”

Senate yesterday lambasted Malami for his moves to stop its investigation into the controversial reinstatement of Maina.

The upper chamber of the National Assembly said Malami had been “running around the courts” to stop the probe of a man “surreptitiously” reinstated into the Federal Government’s service after he had been dismissed.
