FLASHBACK ‘Who is the presidency?’ — how Babachir Lawal reacted to the news of his suspension

After huge pressure from Nigerians, President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday terminated the appointments of Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SSG), Mr Babachir Lawal; and the Director General of National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Mr Ayo Oke.

The declaration followed personal explanation by Deputy Senate Leader, Senator Bala Ibn Na'Allah.

Mr Boss Gida Mustapha is a lawyer, management consultant, politician, businessman and boardroom guru of considerable repute.

It stated that Nigerians had waited patiently for the president's reaction on the "humongous act of corruption" by two of his principal aides.

He regretted that some public officials were consistently using protesters against the lawmakers as a result of their resolve to fight corruption.

In his remarks, the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for heeding to the call of the Senate. It is important that the pending committees charged these investigations expeditiously turn out their investigations.

"In addition, the president must not allow former pension boss, Abdulrasheed Maina's case be swept under the carpet like it was the first time".

This is why I am calling on committee with pending investigations to do so.

Babachir David Lawal from office as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and the subsequent appointment of Mr.

"Let us not be quick to forget that this same people we were fighting for, Nigerians became gullible and were sponsored, toilets were provided for them to close the gate of the National Assembly in the name of occupy NASS".

Tbe interim report of the committee had unearthed grass-cutting scandal in which Lawal, as the SGF, used his company Rholavision Engineering Ltd, while still being its director, to receive consultancy contract to clear invasive plant in Yobe State from PINE, an intervention agency under his office.

Also on the top of the Senate's investigation is allegation of misappropriation of funds and non-remittances to the Federation Account against some revenue agencies and other ministries, departments and agencies of government.
