Malami Withdraws From Kebbi Governorship, To Remain As AGF by Yibo(m): 4:57pm On May 13
Malami had in April declared interest in the Kebbi State governorship race.

Nigeria's Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, has pulled out of the Kebbi State governorship race, multiple sources told SaharaReporters on Friday.

Malami had in April declared interest in the Kebbi State governorship race. He also distributed over 200 exotic vehicles to party members ahead of the governorship primary in the state. On Wednesday, he submitted his N50 million nomination form at the International Conference Centre.

Several sources close to the minister said he withdrew from the race over fear that he may not get the ticket.

There has been a cold political war between the incumbent governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu and the political arrowhead of Kebbi, Senator Adamu Alieru over who succeeds the former.

While Bagudu, who chairs the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), is rooting for Malami as his successor, Aliero, a two-term governor of the state, has Senate Leader, Yahaya Abdullahi as his preferred candidate for the APC governorship ticket.

Aliero’s camp has Bala Sani Kangiwa, who was removed during the last state congress of the party as their chairman, while the camp of the governor has Abubakar Kana Zuru as chairman.

Two secretariats of the APC now exist in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital.

Fearing he may not get the ticket under the current circumstances, Malami was said to have changed his plan and pulled out of the governorship race.

He (Malami) actually pulled out of the race because he knows he can’t win without being the Attorney General,” a source told SaharaReporters.

Malami, a lawyer from Kebbi State who was hardly known before 2015 when he was appointed into the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, is today one of the richest men in Nigeria.

In 2020, a series of detailed investigations carried out by SaharaReporters showed that Malami had acquired several properties whose value run into many billions of naira since being appointed into the administration of President Buhari as Nigeria’s chief law officer.

For example, the AGF has an underground hotel in Sokoto, three houses at Peace Estate, Abuja, a brand-new state-of-the-art school in Kebbi, two houses for his sons worth N100 million each and a new hotel under construction in the Jabi area of Abuja.

Malami also bought a house worth N150 million in the Gwarimpa area of Abuja. A school located at the back of NITEL in Gesse Phase 1, Birnin Kebbi and a house worth N600 million on Ahmadu Bello Way, Nasarawa GRA, Kano, are among properties acquired by Malami since he became a minister under President Buhari.

The houses he built for his sons in Kebbi are 200 metres apart in a posh part of the city.

That is not all. Malami also built N3billion multipurpose event centre in Kebbi State named Azbir Arena, for his son.

The facility is said to be an entertainment centre with a plaza and a kids’ playing section.

This is apart from Rayhaan Hotel located on Zaria Road, opposite Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, which the AGF massively upgraded using unexplained wealth.

He got bursted, he was actually planning to fund his campaign with public funds, Buhari should recommend his sack to the Senate...same should be applied to the rest of them.



2023 ELECTIONS: THE ASSEMBLY OF ALI BABA AND THE FORTY THIEVES.

The moment I saw that short certified Aso Rock errand boy called oSINbanjo personally going from market to market nationwide sharing TraderMoni to market women, I knew the fake pastor is up to something, he cunningly started his Presidential campaign using tax payers money years ago way earlier than the other aspirants, Evidently, his betrayal of Thiefnubu was well planned...The plan was not for oSINbanjo to run but for Thiefnubu to run in 2023 as agreed in 2015 but the short devil stylishly started his Presidential campaign backdoor using TraderMoni as a campaign tool since 2016. Apparently, the Jagaban got JagaBANNED and JagaJAMMED by the short devil in DIOR.

Nevertheless, I will choose him over that self acclaimed kingmaker Thiefnubu (the pee poos choice) who have spent the best part of his looting life installing loyal crooks he can easily manipulate if he becomes President with the aim of turning Nigeria into his family business empire and a criminal enterprise (God forbid). The drug baron even confirmed it by saying it was his "life long ambition to be President" as if every other persons ambition in Nigeria is to remain slaves, Similarly, forget all those bourdillon visits by politicians, it is actually a recruitment exercise for crooks.

...Or is it that Him-Too-Lie Pandora Obi who is half Nigerian and half Chinese and who single handedly made ipob miscreants abandon biafra agitation to suddenly become Zoogerians wishing a Southern Easterner become the next Nigerian President.

...Or is it that serial looser called Ah-Thief-crook who owns a University in Nigeria but sent all his children to school in Universities abroad. He is a well known Cameroonian thief claiming to be Nigerian.

....Or is it Bussola SorryKey who alongside his late father held Kwara hostage for several years same way Thiefnubu held and is still holding Lagos hostage... Obviously, he is planning to rundown Nigeria same way he finished Societe Generale bank.

...Or that urgly ganja psychopath called Wikay who behaves like an overgrown baby and always barks when no one is chasing.

...Or that Amala lying dude called Faryemi who claimed he rejected an $80million bribe...e shock you?, This is someone Ekiti State government sued for stealing N4.9Billion.

...Or is it that fulani slave called Okororocha whose only mission is to steal all the furniture in Aso Rock just as he did in Imo State.

...Or that eye service snitch called Ameatchi who keeps encouraging Buhari to borrow loans that our future generations may not be able to pay back.

...Or is it Yourmama Bello who refused to pay workers salary, the crook kept workers salary in fix deposit in banks and eats the interest accrued while workers in his state languish in poverty. The right man voted for by the Kogi people had to die for him to be governor (the accidental governor now wants to be President), wonderful!

...Or that blotted political prostitute called Dele Mumudun. What has this dude even done in his community? Someone that has never even headed a Landlord Association wants to be Nigeria's President, what an insult?

...Or is it that false prophet called Tundead Bakari who once claim God revealed he is the next President and was hand picked by Buhari as his running mate in 2011, they eventually lost disgracefully in an event that lead to grandpa Buhari sheading premium tears on national Television.

...Or is it that Arms procurement thief called Amusu whome the Court ordered the permanent forfeiture of the stolen N2.2Billion he stole to the FG.

...Or is it Ken Nnedmadi the man who proudly sold his conscience (this one fit sell Nigeria back to the British) Judas Iscariot reincarnated.

...Or is it that aboki bureau de change slave called Godwin Emadfiele who restricted Nigerians from spending not more than $100 (now $20) on their naira card for International online transactions but allowed the abokis to buy foreign exchange from banks at official rates and sell back to Nigerians at black market rate making the abokis overnight billionaires while preventing his brother Emeka from buying spare parts online and other hardworking e-commerce youths because of his idiotic policy sumarsult to please his fulani masters.


...Or is it that white mustache criminal called Chris Ndigge who stole Anambra State N46Billion and got exposed in 2013 by EFCC, this idiot even claimed to end the minimum wage controversy, what a ridiculous effontry. This idiot has been in government for ages under immunity to escape justice.

...Or is it our greedy and hungry brown envelope journalists who will be biased in their reportage to further plunge this great nation into more calamity?

...Or those faceless groups donating money to support aspirants, Obviously, they are not doing it without expecting contracts in return, it's all about contracts baby! "baba, I donate N50million, no forget that N5Billiion contract if you win". They go about secretly staking their bets on aspirants in every party, atleast one ticket go enter...bet9ja style.

...You can add yours.

I can go on and on with these sophisticated assembly of legendary jokers and shameless criminals.

The real reason all these political gangsters are buying Presidential forms(even if sold for $1Billlion) is simply because of juicy contracts they will get as compensation agreed upon in a closed door meeting by all Presidential aspirants before election day...the vagabonds don't give a fvck about Nigerians but their greedy selves.

Is Nigeria not already doomed with these bunch of idiotic rogues and sophisticated retards wanting to be President? Well, A surprising large number of mentally unstable people voted for Buhari so I won't be surprised if they vote again for another calamity to inflict more hardship on Nigerians for the next 16 years...this just shows how large the population mentally unstable people we have in Nigeria who are surprisingly more active in politics than sane people.

BTW, Singer Portable is better off all these lots...atleast all of us will be ZaaZuuing to console ourselves.

Parting Shot

Sadly for APC, Thiefnubu might end up being the consensus candidate of APC, How? Most of the aspirants buying Presidential forms are his loyalist acting on his instructions, imagine if the aspirants now have to vote for a consensus candidate were majority of the aspirants are Thiefnubu's loyalist (saboteurs) in a vote were majority carries the vote, Your guess is as good as mine. The systematic inclusion of the controversial withdrawal form by APC was the much needed clue on this political tactics anchored by the brown teeth Jagaban himself.

Yours truly,
