NBA Rules: Lawyers Sign Petition To Strip Malami Of SAN Title by weyreypey: 10:07pm On Sep 13
Over 380 lawyers have signed a petition demanding that the Attorney General of the Federation, Mr Abubakar Malami, be stripped of the title of Senior Advocate of Nigeria.

The petition, started on Change.org by Izu Aniagu, is titled, “Sign to strip Nigeria’s AGF, Abubakar Malami the title of Senior Advocate of Nigeria”.

Aniagu predicated his petition on the recent unilateral amendments to the Rules of Professional Conduct for Legal Practitioners 2007 by Malami.

He said the unilateral amendment was a threat to the rule of law, coupled with Malami’s other alleged wrongdoings, such as “disobedience to court orders, to his lacklustre prosecution, to his outright failure to prosecute, to allegations of corruption and bias against his person, to the usurpation of office, to shielding of suspects, to his general dereliction of duty.”



The petition added, “This time, the AGF has decided to take his imprudence to top-notch by unilaterally deleting the provisions of the Rules of Professional Conduct which provide for stamp and seal as well as bar practicing fee for government lawyers.


“The AGF does not have such power. Section 12 (4) of the LPA gives the General Council of the Bar power to make any such amendment and make other decisions concerning the NBA.

“There is no record of any meeting convened by the Attorney General of the Federation, who is the President of the Bar Council. The AGF took the decision alone and his actions constitute a threat to the rule of law. His action is totally shameful and is undeserving of a lawyer in the rank of a Senior Advocate, let alone a Chief Law Officer of the federation.”

As of 7.57 pm on Sunday, 383 lawyers had signed the petition.

Buhari and his government amending rules like a family business.

Like they not gonna leave the office.

Perhaps, the more Northerners in government the more catastrophe the country plunge.

The same people that cheer up the AGF Malami when he mischievously planned to oust the EFCC acting Chairman are the same people accusing him of underhand job. Sheer hypocrisy!

I can see that the god of Ibrahim Magu is dealing with you guys very fast without wasting much time.

how can one aboki appointed as AGF removed efcc chairman? because he wasn't taking permission from him, changed the constitution to suit himself , and just because the NBA withdrew Elrufai invitation, he decided to rendered the association useless by cooking concoction law to over rule it power, The man is corrupt, he should face panel.
Nigeria is bigger than him.
how can a SAN be disobeying court orders? how did he became a SAN? seriously the man is not fit to be a SAN and
it's high time Nigeria eradicate quota system to prevent this kind of thing in the future.
I pray the Quota system President and quota system AGF will not ruin this nation

Kingdemu:

Are you sure?

Remember the AGF under Yar Adua? Michael Aondaaka who infamously stated that the president can rule from anywhere. He was stripped of his "SANship". Although seems he has gotten it back now (How? I don't know. Could be legal or illegal).

Exercise in futility. We like wasting too much time on frivolities in this country. Something you clearly know won’t see the light of the day. Where is petition signed by several people to probe Tinubu?
