BREAKING: Buhari Fires SGF Babachir Lawal, Oke
President Muhammadu Buhari has finally bowed to pressure and relieved embattled Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, and the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ayo Oke of their appointments.
The president has also appointed Boss Mustapha as the new SGF.
Presidential spokesman Femi Adesina announced this on his Twitter handle on Monday.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had on Wednesday, August 23, 2017, submitted to the Presidency the report of the committee that investigated allegations of corruption against Lawal and Oke.
Similarly, a committee set up by the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, had discovered that frauds to the tune of N919m allegedly took place under Yusuf, who had spent less than a year at the NHIS. The report was then sent to the President on September 4.
While Oke was supposed to have proceeded on pre-retirement leave from August as his tenure ends in November, there has been no official decision by Buhari on allegations against the NIA boss.
