My response to Dr. & Attorney Fashakin’s comment on Attorney General Malami’s pedigree and incompetence.
Your observation was completely right, Segun, on what a dumb Attorney General Nigeria now has in Abubakar Malami, the only senior advocate of Nigeria Buhari could find to appoint as Attorney General in a country which produced its first lawyer in 1843 or thereabouts in Barrister Sapara, a Yoruba Man.
The Yorubas have dominated the Law Profession for close to 2 centuries if you remember the Jibowus, the Conrad Taylor’s, the Adetokunbo Ademolas,
the H, O. Davies and the Rotimi Williams and the Awolowos to mention a few.
Today the Northerners now dominate the legal profession and they have more senior advocates of Nigeria than the Southerners put together.
It all translates to the fact that only relatively junior lawyers from the North can be found to be senior advocates of Nigeria or Chief Justice of Nigeria in the next 10 to 50 years based on seniority.
Why is that? Because the Judiciary Commission that is saddled with the responsibility to nominate the jurists is now dominated by northerners just like the Federal Civil Service Commission has been dominated by northerners since October 1st, 1960. You can quote me on that.
That is why Justice Ishak Bello’s nomination to serve in the International Court of Justice at The Hague was recently rejected by the Court because he lacked the experience , the seniority, and the competence to serve in the high visibility Court.
Shehu Malami the Attorney General did not even know that Justice Adewale Thompson had banned open grazing in Nigeria as far back as 1969.
Don’t be surprised if Malami is appointed the Chief Justice of Nigeria tomorrow from nowhere by Buhari because he is a Fulani and a born-to-rule oligarch in Nigeria.
The Yoruba Nation must break away from Nigeria for the Southwest to fulfill her Destiny.
That is part of the reason I am supporting the breakaway of the Southwest. There should be no going back on that.
