The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has denied alleged plot to reverse the Supreme Court judgment on Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
APC was barred from fielding candidates for the 2019 elections in Rivers.
But, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which won most of the elective positions, alleged on Sunday that there was a plot to reverse the court judgment.
PDP fingered Malami as the one, who would mount pressure on the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Mohammed, to effect the reversal.
However, dismissing the allegation on Wednesday in Abuja, Malami said the PDP exercised its power of freedom of speech in excess.
Speaking with State House correspondents, he said: “Regarding what was levelled against me by PDP, I think it remains an accusation.
“It has to remain so until proven through a judicial process.
“But, for me, I think it is freedom of speech that has been taken too far.”
