According to Abubakar Malami, the attorney-general of the federation and minister of justice, the Buhari-Led administration has ensured that journalists and citizens no longer suffer from any form of impunity.

In a statement issued by his media aide Umar Gwandu in commemoration of the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists which is celebrated on November 2 every year, the AGF disclosed that "Nigeria is no longer among the countries with impunity for crimes against journalists".

Malami who noted that Nigeria is the only country that came off the index from 2019 as revealed in 2020 Global Index for Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists released on Wednesday by the Committee to Protect Journalists, added that before the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria ranked 13th across the globe and used to be among top three African countries with impunity for crimes against journalists only after Somalia and South Sudan.

Expressing hope of the implementation of cybercrime Act 2015 minimizing incidents of cyber-related crimes, Malami stated that the federal government is working to ensure the safety of journalists against rhetorical aggression, trolling, incursion of privacy, phishing and cyberattacks.

He Said;

“The deliberate and committed efforts of the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government through the implementation of many reforms in the Nigerian justice sector to include increased access to justice, speedy justice dispensation, decongestion of Nigeria’s correctional centers and judicious implementation of the Criminal Justice Act and Justice Sector reforms.

“With the solid foundation of reformed justice sector to be bequeathed by Buhari Administration, never again will Nigeria feature among nations where journalists, citizens and inhabitants of the country will suffer from any form of impunity in the future.”
