Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), has begun intense lobby of the Aso Villa "cabal" to exclude him from the imminent removal from the cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari’.


Investigation revealed that powerful politicians in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have mounted pressure on President Buhari to remove underperforming ministers from his cabinet.


Dr. Garus Gololo, a chieftain of APC had last week advised President Muhammad Buhari not to be distracted in his quest to get rid of some cabinet members of his administration, with the view to repositioning his government.


Gololo added that it would do the President a whole lot of good, if he sacks Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, and other ministers whom he said have lived below expectations.


He advised President Buhari not to listen to Malami or anyone fronting on his behalf to stay in the cabinet.


Recalled, an online platform, Sahara Reporters had on Thursday last week, in an exclusive report, stated that President Buhari had perfected arrangements to relief Mr. Malami and 15 other ministers in his cabinet, before December 2021.


"Let the President go ahead and sack them - both Malami and other Ministers who are not productive. The party APC has built on good ideology and if anyone has nothing to offer the President, in terms of capacity, to enable him deliver on his promises and live up to the expectations of the ideology, then such person should be shown the way out.


"I will advise the President not to listen to anyone or even the Malami himself. Let him stay focused and reposition his government. Let no one distract him,” Gololo said.


President Buhari had, on the 2nd September 2021, removed two of his serving Ministers, with the promise to continue with the reshuffling of his cabinet.
