Ahead of the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State, the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami rattled Nigerians last week when he  threatened a possible declaration of state of emergency in the state if the insecurity in the state persisted.

His suggestion did not go down well with Nigerians who greeted it with outrage. Many questioned the parameter he used to judge the Anambra crisis to make such dangerous suggestion. A lot of Nigerians argued that in the heat of Boko Haram crisis  in Borno and other parts of the North, security was provided for elections to   hold; that the Federal Government has a duty to do that in Anambra if it comes to that, not declaring state of emergency. Some  have also gone ahead to allege that  the plot was a dangerous agenda for  the APC-led  federal government to win the election and take over Anambra State by all means.

Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano who was livid blasted the Attorney-General, Abubakar Malami, SAN, for making that suggestion in the first place. Obiano, who headed to Abuja to meet President Muhammadu Buhari, said the AGF’s statement didn’t have the support of the President.  According him, the President never mentioned anything relating to the AGF’s statement during their meeting.
