Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN has said that Nigerian Government’s fight against corruption in the country is impartial, objective and non-discriminatory.

Mr Malami, in a statement issued by his media, Dr. Umar Gwandu, described allegations on use of the fight for political witch-hunting as unfounded, baseless and devoid of factual proof.

“The evidence on the ground establishes that the Federal Government’s operations in the fight against corruption are carried out without fear or favor,” Mr Malami said.

He added that “members of the ruling or opposition parties and otherwise are in no way spared in view of numerical data of recorded judicial convictions”

Mr Malami noted that the efforts to have a corrupt-free Nigeria are devoid of any political inclinations
as recent convictions recorded were against the members of APC (the ruling political party) and PDP (the opposition political party).
