‘All diplomatic passports of my family have been returned to the state,’ the minister of Justice Abubacarr Tambadou, disclosed to the press on Friday.
“The diplomatic passports were served for a purpose to facilitate my family to go to Saudi Arabia to assist my mum using wheelchair,” he clarified.
“Before acquiring the diplomatic passports, I sought advice from competent authority if I could apply for them and I was told yes,” he said.
“I followed the process in the right channel and it was granted, Mr. Tambadou further clarified. “There was no dubious deal.”
“My family members continue to use ordinary passports. Everything was transparent,” he added.
Mr. Tambadou, however, dismissed the call on social media for him to resign.
