Babachir Lawal, Ayo Oke shown the exite door

The President, Muhammadu Buhari has finally booted out suspended SGF, Babachir Lawal who was six months ago caught in contract scandal involving IDPs.
Also booted out is Ayo Oke, suspended head of the National Intelligence Agency.
Oke on his part was suspended when large sums of money in excess of N13b, which he claims belongs to his organisation was busted by the EFCC in Ikoyi, Lagos. 

The two men were initially suspended and a committee headed by VP Osinbajo was constituted to look into the allegations leveled against them. The VP submitted the findings of the committee shortly before Buhari left the country for medical treatment.
The Presidency released a statement part of which reads:
“The President accepted the recommendation of the panel to terminate the appointment of Mr Lawal, and has appointed Mr Boss Mustapha as the new Secretary to the Government of the Federation. The appointment takes immediate effect.
“President Buhari also approved the recommendation to terminate the appointment of Ambassador Oke, and has further approved the setting up of a three-member panel to, among other things, look into the operational, technical and administrative structure of the Agency and make appropriate recommendations.”
