9,000 lawyers sign petition for AGF Malami’s Law school exam papers to be remarked – Barr. Nwabufo

No less than 9,000 lawyers have signed a petition seeking the remarking of Attorney General of the Federation, and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami’s Law school exam papers.

This was made known by a lawyer, Barrister Austin Nwabufo in a post on his official Twitter account @AustinNwabufo on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.

He said; ”9,000 lawyers sign petition demanding the remarking of Malami’s law School exams papers, Malami cried in his office, suspect’s Akpata to be responsible for his travails”

Meanwhile, this is not the first time a petition would be launched against the Attorney-General.

In 2020, lawyers started signing a petition to strip Malami of the rank of senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

SAN is the highest rank for lawyers in Nigeria.

The petition followed the amendments the AGF made to the rules of professional conduct for legal practitioners (RPC), 2007.

The requirement for the NBA stamp and seal on court processes was removed in the amendment, creating room for non-lawyers to submit court processes.

In a petition filed by Izu Aniagu on http://www.change.org, Malami was accused to of taking the decision alone, thereby constituting a threat to the rule of law.

The NBA had kicked against the amendments, saying Malami did not follow due process.

  1. I think the originators of this petition should have tapped into Igbo idiom or wisdom of the threat posed by tsetse fly pecking at a man’s scrotum: if you ignore d irritating fly, it will suck all your blood to death; if you attempt to kill it, you might burst your scrotums to inadvertently kill yourself.

    That’s exactly the status of AGF Malami for you NBA and your SANs.  Now that you are out to disgrace him, you also are out to disgrace your noble profession, because it is NBA that produced Malami and the buck definitely stops at NBA table.   If you let AGF Malami alone, he will wreck more havoc to the noble profession NBA and thereby heaping more bad repute and history to Nigerian law profession.

    Either way, true or false, the damage is done and will be done, and NBA has no ready remedy than to accept the fact that Nigerian NBA is already bound to irrelevance or inferiority and inferior to law profession in other countries of the world.  This is most unfortunate.
