Oil Revenue Probe: Malami Writes Reps, Expresses Readiness To Meet

The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, has written the House of Representatives Adhoc Committee investigating the alleged loss of over $2.4 billion in revenue from the illegal sale of 48 million barrels of crude oil, expressing readiness to appear before them.

Malami's decision is contained in a letter sent to the committee and comes after he and the Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, were summoned twice.

The AGF who has been fingered in the payment of $200 million for whistleblowing in the investigation disclosed that his office was putting together a comprehensive response to the issues the committee had raised.

The update was provided by the chairman of the committee, Mark Gbillah, at the resumed public hearing.

While appreciating the move by the AGF, he noted that he and the finance minister were yet to respond to the issues raised.

“While we appreciate the Attorney General’s response, we’d like to indicate that it came a lot later than we expected and it came without the response that we referred to.

“So, we’ll appreciate it if the Attorney General and honourable Minister provide these responses and also appear before the committee next Thursday”, Gbillah stated.
