The Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami has withdrawn from the Kebbi State governorship election.

TRIXX NG recall that Malami was among the ministers that turned in their resignation letters to pursue their political ambition.

President Buhari had on Friday held a valedictory session for members of his cabinet who are resigning to pursue their 2023 political ambitions.

Malami, however, on Saturday in a message forwarded to Vanguard confirmed that he has pulled out of the Kebbi State Governorship race.

The minister said, “I have not resigned as the Attorney General of the Federation but have only withdrawn from the Kebbi governorship race.”

Malami who had earlier declared his intention to take over from the current Kebbi state governor, Atiku Bagudu in 2023 has decided to retain his place in President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet.
