The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), says he will be glad to testify before the Justice Ayo Salami-led Presidential panel if he is summoned.
He said this during an interview with newsmen on Wednesday.
agu Malami, who is also the Minister of Justice, was reacting to a letter by the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, calling on Salami to summon the AGF.
The AGF said he had nothing to hide and would not hesitate to give the Salami-led panel the full cooperation if need be.
Magu, who is being investigated based on a petition from the AGF, had on Monday written a letter to the Salami-led panel through his lawyer, Wahab Shittu, calling on the panel to summon the AGF.
Shittu, who cited Section 36(a), (b), (c) and (d) of the Nigerian Constitution, added, “Based on the foregoing, we humbly request that the Honourable Attorney General, who is the main accuser in these proceedings, be graciously invited to give evidence in connection with the subject matter of this inquiry with specific reference to our client in the interest of fair hearing.
