The recovery agents engaged by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malam, are institutional recovery agents and not agents of Malami as being portrayed by some media.

Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu, Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations Office
to the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, made the clarification in a statement he made available to journalists in Abuja on Friday.

He said: “Malami, in his personal capacity, does not have personal “debt collectors” for the recovery of federal government debts.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Office of the Attorney-General and
Minister of Justice does not engage recovery agents based on projected
personal gratification or individual’s inclinations.

“Hence, all those engaged by the Federal Government for undertaking certain tasks in the recovery of assets and generation of revenues
belonging to the government did not belong to “Malami”as
mischievously portrayed by some certain media outlets.

“But Federal Government of Nigeria through the instrumentality of  the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice.

“Such engagements were purely based on the interest of the general public as a guiding principle.

“The Minister reiterated his stance, that engagement of recovery agents
was neither propelled by any ulterior motive nor about gratification of any personal desire through any percentage to be given to or by the recovery agent,”

According to him it is of an unflinching patriotic commitment to get back
to the country the revenue it deserves.

“It is the same Federal Government that engaged the Trobell in the recovery of the unpaid Federal Government revenue that asked the agency to step down, based on the stakeholders meeting held.”
