SGF, NIA DG remain suspended - Nigerian FG Insist
« on: May 22, 2017, 07:16:38 AM »


The Presidency on Sunday insisted that the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir David Lawal and the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke are still suspended.


The Presidential Investigative Panel, headed by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, had investigated Lawal over allegations of violations of law and due process in the award of contracts under the Presidential Initiative on the North East (PINE).

The panel also probed money linked to Oke concerning the discovery of large amounts of foreign and local currencies by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in a residential apartment at Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The two weeks period given by President Muhammadu Buhari for the probe had already expired.

A statement by the Senior Special Assistant on media and publicity, Laolu Akande, said that the outcome of the Investigation will soon be made public.

Urging for patience, he said that Nigerians would be satisfied with the outcome of the investigation when made public.
He also disclosed that the Acting President is billed to hold an interactive session with a cross-section of middle level and senior public and civil servants on Wednesday.

The interactive session, he said, is part of measures to drive the reforms intended in the new executive orders signed last Thursday.
He said that the Acting President would be discussing in particular the executive orders on business environment and promoting “Made in Nigeria” products.

He said that the Buhari administration will drive the new executive orders vigorously in its determination to significantly transform the business environment and how government business is done in the country.

“These are the people who will be directly responsible for the attainment of the objectives of the executive orders, so the Ag. President wants an opportunity to talk with them directly and also hear from them in person.” he said
Stressing that the interactive forum would be opened for live coverage by a number of TV stations, and live streaming, Akande said that ensuring the effective implementation of the orders are critical for the overall prosperity of Nigerians and Nigeria.

Besides, as part of activities commemorating the Second year of the Buhari administration, Akande said next week on May 29, a presidential level Report Card event on the Social Investment Programmes of the Buhari presidency would be held at Aso Rock.

“Here at this national event, we shall be updating Nigerians on the progress so far attained, how we are addressing some challenges and how President Buhari’s Social Investment Programmes would be significantly expanded going forward,” Akande noted.

The SIPs are the N-Power, which selected and engaged 200,000 unemployed Nigerians graduates for a volunteer job programmers, the Conditional Cash Transfer being implemented now in 9 states, General Economic & Empowerment Programme, GEEP-a micro credit scheme that has given out almost 60,000 loans out already, and the National Homegrown School Feeding Programme, where 25 million meals have been served and over 1 million primary school pupils in at least seven states are being fed and over 11,000 cooks hired.
