Senator Dino Melaye
Senator Dino Melaye has mocked Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, over his suspension which was announced by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Dino took to Twitter writing: “Babachir Lawal. Aje ku iya nio je. Eni tio toni na ton dena deni,aje ku iya nio je. Ntoooooo.”
Yesterday, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered an investigation into the allegations of violations of law and due process by Lawal, with regard to the award of contracts under the Presidential Initiative on the North East (PINE).
It would be recalled that Senator Shehu Sani-led ad-hoc committee had indicted Lawal accusing him of mismanagement and diversion of IDP funds through a company allegedly owned by Lawal. He was found to have been awarded a grass-clearing contract worth about N200million.
But the President had resisted recommendation by the Senate for Lawal to be sacked, even writing the lawmakers clearing Lawal of the allegations before he suddenly announced the SSG’s suspension yesterday.
Lawal had earlier denied the allegation even calling the Senate names.
