Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami has joined Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi to clarify the controversies surrounding the speech by the Transport Minister on Nigeria's sovereignty not being at risk in the country’s loan agreements with China.

Malami made the clarification when he appeared on a live Television programme alongside Amaechi.

 

The Justice Minister said there is a difference between international diplomatic immunity which has to do with a nation’s sovereignty, independent existence’ and commercial immunity which has to do with a commitment to ensure repayment of loans.

 

He said the misconception is that the National Assembly is looking at the diplomatic immunity as against the commercial immunity of a country when it has to do with loans, adding that there is no concession whatsoever made as it concerns Nigeria's diplomatic immunity.
