Presidency Reacts To Senate’ Call For Sack of SGF, Babachir Lawal

The Presidency on Thursday made its reaction to calls by The Senate to sack Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Babachir Lawal.

The Presidency noted that President Muhammadu Buhari would consider both sides of the matter in the case of the Lawal, who was on Wednesday recommended for sack by the Senate.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, said this in an interview with Punch correspondent.

Adesina was asked whether Buhari would heed the Senate’s call to sack Lawal.

But the presidential spokesman said the President was a fair-minded person who would look at both sides before taking a decision.

“The SGF has defended himself. The President is very fair minded. He will look at both sides of the matter,” he simply said.

The Senate had at plenary on Wednesday called for the removal and prosecution of the SGF following alleged complicity in the diversion of the North-East humanitarian funds.
