Former member of Niger House of Assembly, Alhaji Ahmed Dogara, has admonished the President Muhammadu Buhari to declare his position on the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal and the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke.
Dogara said this would send signal to public officers to desist from looting public treasury.
Both Lawal and Oke were on April 19 suspended from office pending the conclusion of investigations by a panel set up by the president.
The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo-led panel investigated allegations of contract fraud and bribery against Lawal by the Senate and the $43m cash found in an Ikoyi apartment by EFCC, claimed by the NIA.
Speaking with newsmen on Saturday in Minna, the Niger State capital, Dogara said Nigerians are worried about the “cases of SGF, NIA boss and the list of corrupt officers that nearly ruined Nigeria which has remained unresolved.”
He said it was high time for the Federal Government to act fast to enable Nigerians to strengthen their political will in exposing public officers looting the national treasury.
“Mr. President showed, as he had done now, that he can hire and fire to salvage the bad situation in the polity.
“President Buhari’s commitment to fight corruption these years that made the majority of the masses to support his candidature, is the same step that can earn this government votes in the next election in 2019″ he said.
