Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of justice, Abubakar Malami, has denied sharing 200 exotic cars to APC delegates in Kebbi, saying, rather it was his foundations that shared 200 Mercedes and Toyota SUVs to long-term workers of the NGOs.

The Nigeria`s Minister of Justice said this on Tuesday during an interactive session with journalists in Birnin Kebbi. Mr Malami claimed the SUVs were distributed by Khadi Malami and Khadimiyya for Justice and Development Initiative, non-governmental organisations.

“As a person with some associates, neither I nor a friend of mine shared any vehicle to any delegate across the state,” explained Mr Malami. “Let me state categorically that some of the foundations, as Khadi Malami and Khadimiyya for Justice and Development Initiative I am associated with over time, have workers who have demonstrated a greater capacity in the development of the state.”

He said that the purchase of the cars was funded by “the supporters of the association” to “reward those that have been manning the affairs of the NGOs.”

 “In appreciation of what the workers of the associations have been doing in the state and beyond, the supporters of the associations, collectively and individually, decided to solicit for support from well-meaning Nigerians that have been supporting the NGOs in order to reward those that have been manning the affairs of the NGOs,” he maintained

Despite Malami`s denial, reliable report has it that he is the main financer of the NGO.

Although Mr Malami admitted having interactive session with APC stakeholders some days on his governorship ambition before the vehicles were distributed, but had not to do with distribution of vehicles.

 “I know I had an interactive session with APC stakeholders some days ago and had accepted calls from Kebbi people to run for the state governorship; the meeting was not for distribution of vehicles to any APC stakeholder,” he maintained. “None of the APC stakeholder or delegate in Kebbi State was given any vehicle by me, and I have not yet donated any vehicle to any delegate.”

Meanwhile, the minister claimed he faced many attacks after the vehicles were shared to the beneficiaries.

“At this moment, I have experienced a barrage of attacks, left, right and centre, some are local and others international, an attack that has to do with an allegation that I shared many expensive vehicles to delegates of APC,” he told journalists.

Business compiler has earlier reported that Abubakar Malami distributed 65 Toyota RAV4 SUVs, 60 Toyota Prado SUVs, 40 Lexus LX SUVs, and 35 Mercedes Benz GLK 350 SUVs. to APC delegates in Kebbi ahead of the party`s governorship primaries.
