 I Have Not Received Senate Summons – AGF

Mallam-Abubakar-MalamiThe AGF, Malami, said on Tuesday that he had yet to receive the summons of the Senate, inviting him over the forgery charges being preferred against Saraki, Ekweremadu and two others.
Justice Yusuf Halilu of a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Jabi, Abuja, had, earlier on Tuesday, fixed June 27 for the arraignment of the accused persons, after ordering that the charges preferred against them be pasted to the notice board of the National Assembly as a means of service on them.
Speaking on behalf of the minister, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Salihu Isah, said such summons of the Senate had not been served on the minister as of the close of work while responding to one of our correspondents’ enquiry at about 5.12pm on Tuesday.
When asked what the minister’s response would be if he received the Senate’s invitation on Wednesday or anytime thereafter, Isah said his boss would need to study it.
“We have not received any invitation by the Senate as of this moment and official activities have already closed for the day.
“The minister will study the invitation when he receives it and take appropriate decision when the time comes,” he stated.
