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."
