Malami: Nigeria To Disclose Names Of Looters, If..

The Federal Government has pledged to obey a court order urging the Presidency to name suspected looters of the  nation’s treasury.However, that will only  happen  if certain legal hurdles  are cleared.

Speaking to journalists after the FEC meeting Wednesday, Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami said “The disclosure will definitely be made, but it is contingent on reconciliation of associated considerations as they relate to sub judice principles. As they relate to Concluding, reconciliation and confirmation of figures.

In details Malami said “Let me place it on the record that we have Freedom of Information Act in place. And the government is fully aware of its responsibility.

“But we have to take into account and consideration, the fact that there are some factors that have to be considered as far as making these disclosures are concerned.

“There are matters that are sub judice in court. There are matters of reconciliation, compilations and other associated things.

“On the need and (compliance) basis, the federal government has been making public necessary statements.

“The disclosure will definitely be made, but it is contingent on reconciliation of associated considerations as they relate to sub judice principles. As they relate to Concluding, reconciliation and confirmation of figures.

“So that has been done and the government will at the appropriate time make necessary disclosures perhaps intermittently against the background of the prevailing conditions relating to the pendency of certain things and associated things.”
