Fayose Reacts to Buhari's Suspension of SGF Babachir Lawal

Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, is claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari's suspension of Secretary to the Federation, Babachir Lawal and the Director-General of National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ambassador Ayo Oke, is a cover up not to reveal the owner of the N13bn cash found in an Ikoyi apartment in Lagos state.

Buhari's setting up of a probe panel to investigate them is also part of the cover up, he said.

“Would the President have set up a probe panel if these scams were linked to anyone in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or those members of his party that are not in his good books?" a statement released by his spokesman Lere Olayinka said.

“Most importantly, what business does Presidential Committee have with investigation of crime? Are they telling Nigerians that they have lost confidence in all the intelligence and investigative agencies of the government, including the EFCC and DSS?”

“The Buhari-led Federal Government is operating like many governments within one government. There appears to be many Presidencies within the Presidency and this is the reason for the confusion everywhere.”

"The cat of President Buhari’s government hypocrisy in its fight against corruption has already been let of the bag” he said. “Nigerians can no longer be deceived by a government that protects its own people whenever they are accused of corruption while setting the DSS and EFCC to invade houses of members of opposition parties, especially those perceived as having presidential ambition in 2019 in the night to arrest and detain them indefinitely even when corruption allegations against them have not been proved.”

“In all these, what I see is a government trying frantically to cover-up corrupt acts of its functionaries but like I said before now, even though we know that the APC-led federal government has the capacity to sweep it under the carpet like many others before it, Nigerians will have it on record that they are being ruled by a government of the more you look, the less you see.”
