Abuja - The attorney general of the federation and minister of justice, Abubakar Malami, has faulted reports which alleged that he authored a derogatory post on Igbos and Hausas.
The Punch citing The News Agency of Nigeria as its source said Malami in a statement issued by his spokesperson, Umar Gwandu, did not write and never thought about posting such a report or cast aspersions on any tribe.
The statement also said the post was created and circulated by mischief makers and purveyors of hatred bent on destroying the minister's reputation.
According to Gwandu, the AGF is known to be a patriotic Nigerian and non-tribal partisan who believes in equality, fairness, and justice to all regardless of any inclination to tribe, location or gender.
In another report by The Guardian, the spokesperson of the attorney general pointed out that the grammatical flaws, as well as lack of respect for diversity in humanity, make it out of place to believe that the post was from Malami.
He urged the members of the public to disregard the media report.
