'I Made Almost N500m Last Year’, Sacked SSG, Babachir Lawal Boasts
If you think that former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Babachir Lawal is somewhere in his village crying over his sack from government, think again.
Mr Lawal is living the life and no, he isn’t living on looted funds as he insists he was framed and never did shady deals.
Speaking out for the first time since his sack. Lawal told journalists on Monday in Abuja that the sack has been a blessing for him.
“Let me shock you, before I came into government, I have been in business, I was a very successful businessman. I am a world-renowned IT consultant and I have a very large farm, spanning over 1,000 hectares, which I abandoned to join governance.
“I was earning N930,000 monthly as the SGF, now that I have returned to my farm and reactivated it after my sack, I now have 4,000 hectares under cultivation.
“Last year, I earned close to half a billion Naira from my farm proceeds. I have a cattle ranch that I am developing gradually, and I am back to IT consultancy, life is now good.
“Everything that happened to a man is for his own good; my sack I would say, is rather a blessing in disguise.
“Let me tell you, nothing happened to me. Right from the beginning of the saga, I knew that the whole thing was fabricated and that was why I did not give any damn from the beginning.
“The reason some people don’t like me is because I am so confident of myself. Did you hear me defend myself that time, I didn’t do it and I will not do it because I know that they are fabricated.
Lawal was sacked by President Buhari over allegations bordering on misappropriation of funds.
Please can anyone ask the EFCC and ICPC why Fayose is on a watch-list and Lawal is free as a bird?
