President Buhari Sacks Lawal, Oke, Appoints New SSG

Buhari Bows to Pressure, Sacks Babachir Lawal, Ayo Oke

The Nigeria Senate on Tuesday threw weight behind the sack of former Secretary to the government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal and former Director General of National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke. "We can not claim not to know that between yesterday and today, there has been an official appointment of a new SGF", Na'Allah said.

"What Nigerians expected from a president who rode to power on the basis of integrity, is a total cleansing of his government...[not] setting up [a] panel to investigate corruption allegations involving his men and reluctantly sacking a few of them", Fayose wrote in a statement cited by The Guardian.

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

Although, he said the money was for "covert operation given to the NIA" by the President Goodluck Jonathan's government, there were questions why it was not disclosed to the Buhari administration nearly two years after coming into office.

"The issues surrounding Maina emanated from this senate".

"I want to commend the president for doing what is right".

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.

"We can not claim not to know that between yesterday and today there has been official confirmation of a new SGF and termination of appointment of the former SGF".

"When we started the investigation, we were being blackmailed but we will continue in our commitment to fight corruption, non selective".

PDP described the sack of Lawal and Oke without proper information on the panel report as totally unacceptable.

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

"What is important and instructive today is for me as deputy leader of this Senate to implore all my colleagues to say that the task before you in the protection of the constitution and the laws of the federation which is the basis of the engagement with the people who elected us is not a small task".

He said "gullible Nigerians" were sponsored to discredit the national assembly which was working for the people.
