Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal on Wednesday said that Nigerian Senate erred by linking him to the alleged diversion of the N127 billion meant for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the Northeast.


He said the upper chamber was talking nonsense for accusing him of contract inflation and abuse of office.His statement reads in part: “The Senate is talking balderdash; it has developed the habit of the ‘bring him down syndrome’. Nigerians have decided that we should destroy our best; we should all destroy the promising and best among us by bringing people down without a cause. This is just how I saw it.

“I have the report of the Senate Committee in which it was said that I didn’t resign from Rholavision Nigeria Limited. Let me tell you, Rholavision was formed by me in December 1990, and it has been a company that was run very successfully.

“Now, when I was appointed Secretary to the Government of the Federation, I resigned from that company on 18th August 2015. I can see that in their report, they are talking about 2016. I don’t know where they got their facts.

“By the way, it is very instructive that when the committee was sitting, no effort was ever made to invite me to come and make a submission. It is therefore, surprising that they devoted a whole session of today (yesterday) at maligning me, claiming what is not true without even giving me the chance to come and put my own case before them.”

Nigerian Senators on Wednesday demanded immediate resignation of Secretary General of the Federation, Babachir Lawal over allegations of corruption in disbursements of Northeast funds.
