Abubakar Malami, Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, has pulled out of the race to succeed Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State.

After months of speculations, the Minister joined the race last month, appealing to the people for support.

Shortly after, some associates of the minister received exotic cars as gifts. Many of the beneficiaries were workers at the Khadimiyya for Justice and Development Initiative, a foundation he established.

This had triggered backlash as some said it was a move to get Malami soft landing ahead of the APC governorship primaries.

But on Friday night, it was gathered that the minster, who was among those President Muhammadu Buhari bade farewell at Aso Rock earlier in the day, had opted out of the race.

When contacted, Umar Gwandu, his media aide, simply said, “I have not been officially briefed.”

Buhari had ordered his appointees with interest in the 2023 election to step down.
