The Senate has threatened to use its constitutional powers to compel the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, to appear before it.

Malami had on two occasions, June 21 and June 30, shunned summons to appear before the senate’s committee on judiciary, human rights and legal matters to justify the forgery charges against the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.

It was gathered that the Senate walked out on a representative of the AGF on one of those occasions.

However, according to a point of order raised by  David Umari, Malami had expressed regrets and was seeking another chance to appear before the committee.

The Federal Government through the office of the Attorney-General has accused Saraki and Ekweremadu of forging the Senate Standing Rules for the June 9, 2015 election, which led to the duo’s emergence as leaders of the senate.
