SGF Babachir Lawal Gone For Good – Prof. Sagay

Suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Babachir Lawal is gone for good. He is no longer a part of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.

This was the declaration of Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof Itse Sagay (SAN) while reacting to Lawal’s suspension.

Sagay accused the former SGF of violating the Code of Conduct for public officials by awarding a contract to a company linked to him.

“I think the suspensions are inevitable, and in my view they are a journey to total disengagement.

“The SGF is a top member of the administration. He should have known that for him to award a contract to his own company is absolutely prohibited by the Code of Conduct and the Constitution. What he was doing was illegal and unconstitutional."

    It's no longer business as usual, if the most powerful member of PMB led government is indicted with corruption, he/she is gone finally. If not for democracy & rule of law, imagine PMB is operating under military with decree, people would have seen more of his action, by climb down corrupt people & jail them with immediate alacrity.

  2. is that for real though he feels guilty to me so i dont doubt it

  3. I hope others should definitely learn their lesson from him.

  4. Well deserving..

  5. He deserves not to be there at the first place, for someone that knows the consequences of awarding contact to him while as public figure will not attempt to do that. I don't blame him cause he has never work in Government before that was why he messed up many things.
