Senate panel set to grill suspended SGF

Babachir Lawal

The Senate ad hoc Committee on Mounting Humanitarian Crisis in the North-East has re-invited the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Babachir Lawal.

Lawal is to appear before the panel today to answer questions in the probe into the alleged mismanagement of funds meant for the rehabilitation of the geopolitical zone.

The embattled SGF, who was suspended over the allegation of mismanagement of the Presidential Initiative on the North-East under his watch, had asked the probe panel to fix another date for his appearance before it.

The interim report by the panel had indicted Lawal.

A letter signed by the Clerk of the Committee, Mr. Lawal Bungudu, dated April 26, 2017, in which Lawal was invited, was sighted by our correspondent on Wednesday.
