Lawmaker Blames Attorney General For FG’s Non-compliance With NASS Resolutions

The House of Representatives has accused the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice (AGF) Abubakar Malami of encouraging the federal government not to comply with some of the resolutions made by the National Assembly.

Chairman, House Committee on Rules and Business, Emmanuel Orker-Jev, APC-Benue, made the allegation, weekend, while briefing newsmen in Abuja on the legislative activities of the 8th House in its one year anniversary.

According to him, instead of the Attorney General to advise the Presidency accordingly on some of the resolutions, he would do the contrary.

“Unfortunately, it is those we expect should know better that fail to comply with the resolutions. You have the Attorney General of the Federation who advised against the implementation of the resolution of the National Assembly when the House took a resolution that Kogi Assembly be closed as a result of the crisis there.

“The Inspector General complied, unfortunately the advice came thereafter and it was opened up. People know that this is a democracy and it must be respected, things will get better but for now, I think it is a learning process,” he said.
