Finally, PMB Sacks Lawal, Oke, Appoints Mustapha New SGF

Buhari Bows to Pressure, Sacks Babachir Lawal, Ayo Oke

Seven months after a panel was constituted to probe Babachir David Lawal, secretary to the Government of the Federation and Ayo Oke, director general of the National Intelligence Agency, NIA over allegations bordering on breach of trust and possession of huge sums of money respectively, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the recommendation of the panel that they be relieved of their positions.

"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".

Nigeria's cabinet will be expanded to bring in "more people and fresh ideas, for the ultimate benefit of the people of Nigeria", President Muhammadu Buhari said on Tuesday.

"The issue surrounding the termination of the appointment of the former SGF emanated from this 8th Senate and today we have been vindicated". Can we now not have the authority to shout a sign of vindication?

"As a group of genuinely concerned citizens, we must remind President Buhari that the fight against corruption is sharply losing momentum because top government officials in the president's cabinet are being shielded by the president". Individually and collectively, in the social media we were stoned with everything.

"I think this has settled a very important question, among those who oppose us and even among those who support us because they need arguments to counter attacks from those that are opposed to our own position to be empowered with the facts and knowledge so that they are able to speak for the administration".

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

"It has been a tough journey in order to protect the integrity of this institution".

While they cautiously commended the President for sacking the two men after an indication of involvement in corruption, the groups demanded their immediate prosecution and release of the report that indicted them.

PINE, according to the report of the Senate committee, "awarded 39 contracts to various companies to carry out the removal of invasive plant species plants, rehabilitation/renovation works, food supplies, consultancy services and provision of shelter (supply of tarpaulin cabins) etc".
