Former Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi, has slammed Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, for claiming the Federal Government may declare a state of emergency in Anambra State.

Before acting in Anambra State, the Federal Government, according to Obi, should declare a state of emergency in Nigeria.

Due to the level of insecurity, Malami stated that the Federal Government was considering the step ahead of the upcoming governorship election in Anambra State.

The AGF made the remark following a meeting of the Federal Executive Council, or FEC, last week. Obi, on the other hand, stated that Nigeria faces more security concerns than Anambra State.

“Saying that they want to declare a state of emergency in Anambra because of insecurity should actually mean that they need to declare a state of emergency in Nigeria because if you want to declare a state of emergency in Anambra because of insecurity, you have to declare a state of emergency in Nigeria because of insecurity,” the former Anambra State governor said in an interview with Arise Television on Monday.

The PDP chieftain urged the AGF to avoid being partisan in the performance of his job. “In addition, he is the Attorney General of the Federation, not the Attorney General of the Federal Government of the PDP or the APC.” “There is a role for you, and you are now working for the government,” Obi explained.
