“The Attorney -General of the Federation and Minister of did not write and has never contemplated writing or posting such derogatory remarks or cast aspersions any tribe or section of the multi-cultural and diverse communities in the country.

According to Gwandu, the grammatical flaws, apparent illogicalities and divisionary tendencies as well as lack of respect for diversity in humanity make palpably incongruous to believe that the post was from Malami.

“The office of the Attorney -General of the Federation and Minister of calls the general public to disregard the post. It was created and circulated by mischief makers and purveyors of hatred who are bent on destroying the hard-earned reputation of the minister,” Gwandu said.

He added that it was instructive to note that fact-check conducted by some media organisations proved that attributing the derogatory post to Malami was not only defamatory but also fictitious.
