Is that the first time Malami is misleading Buhari? Maybe he feels that Buhari knows nothing and that is why he is misguiding or misadvising him Malami instituted the lawsuit as a conduit to siphon money. He already knew that the case will not fly. Blind lead blind , but stomach is full.. who is deceiving who…

Hmm, both of them have always been very… Good job from the Court, malami should go and rest. That is why a president of any nation should be of sound mind. As old as Obasanjo is, he's still acquired knowledge even after leaving power. Not just surrounding yourself with people that lack nitty gritty of the law. No Attorney of Nigeria has ever been so low as we have now.

The outcome of grand Pa leading a country full of intellectuals, Nigerian youths be wise, don't fall for peanuts from same old men that have looted the country dry in the likes of Baba Emilokan and the one that lives in Dubai that comes to Nigeria only during election period. As President of a country once you ignore competence and appoint your tribe in key positions that is the result you will get. Have we forgotten the case of Accountant General of Federation who was still in service after retirement because he belongs to a particular tribe.

Malami na thief, he’s using Buharis illiteracy to manipulate him to sign documents. He has been misled from day 1 and it’s not a surprise. What do you expect from someone like him? So malami is now Mr president 🤣🤣🤣 since him dey use Mr president head 😅😅😅😅😅

All Statutory Delegates in Nigeria should form NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF STATUTORY DELEGATES with a view to instituting a case against Buhari and Malami for depriving them from participating in the just concluded party primaries in Abuja. Mallam can not mislead another Mallam. Them be thesame people! Where was Ahmed Lawan when the National Assembly took the Executive to the Supreme Court? It seems Buhari was not interested in this case.

Still misleading him Why always defending buhari Everything you people blame it on Malami. What is the input of the one whom we elected as a president? Is Buhari himself a mumu that AGF Malami will mislead him? Na small pickin or blind man he be? Leave that talk. It was what Buhari himself wanted just that both of them are dull quota system products that's why they got rotten 🥚🥚 eggs smashed on their faces.

I don't know why Buhari is been misled. Why do we keep defending him. He is the one misleading malami. Who is our president? We shall know the truth and the truth shall self Free...mslami unto you...

Reacting to the judgment on Friday, both the red and green chambers of the National Assembly told Saturday PUNCH that the verdict had vindicated their position that the President lacks the powers to direct the legislature to amend the Act after it had been passed into law. “The President lacks the power to direct the National Assembly to amend or enact an act. The spokesperson for the Senate, Senator Ajibola Bashir, told Saturday PUNCH, said Buhari’s insistent that the Act should be amended showed that he was wrongly advised by the AGF. “It affirms my position of the independence of the judiciary and the other arms of government, namely the legislature and the executive, which is the bedrock for the development of any nation.

Bashir said, “The judgment has been given by the court.it violates the principle of separation of powers. “There is no provision in the constitution that vests the president the power to challenge the constitutionality or desirability of a legislation after he has assented or denied his assent. The outcome shows that our position at the National Assembly is correct. It also shows that the President is not getting the proper legal advice from the Attorney General.
