President Buhari has cleared embattled SGF, Babachir Lawal from the allegations of corruption leveled against him over the mismanagement of funds earmarked for IDP camps in the north.

In a letter written to the senate in response to a call for the removal of Babachir lawal as secretary general of the federation, Buhari stated that Lawal was not given a fair hearing, citing other reasons the SGF could not do as the senate had demanded.

It would be recalled that in December 2016, the senate had asked President Buhari to sack Lawal and ensure his prosecution over an alleged breach of Nigerian laws in handling contracts awarded by the Presidential Initiative for the North East (PINE).

An interim report by the senate’s ad-hoc committee on the “mounting humanitarian crisis in the North East” led by Sen. Shehu Sani, indicted Mr. Lawal for receiving N200 million contract to clear “invasive plant species” in Yobe State through a company, Rholavision Nigeria Limited. Lawal was said to be a director in the company until September 2016, a year after his appointment. This was a breach of the code of conduct for public officials as stated in Nigeria’s 1999 constitution.
