“You can’t keep telling us you are fighting corruption while there are corruption allegations against people around you and yet you can’t do anything about it. 

"This only means you are the father of corruption. The integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari is now in doubt with all these fraud cases under his nose.”

APC Chieftain in Adamawa State, Mark Wosi said this while reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari's inability to sack the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation Babachir Lawal, the suspended Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Prof. Usman Yusuf, and the suspended Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ayo Oke.

Wosi said from all indications, Buhari was stalling on the issues because the men involved were his loyalists.

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.

In view of this, the Chairman, House of Representatives’ Committee on Justice, Razaq Atunwa, called on the President to sack and prosecute the affected government officials.
