Incumbent Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal may also be looking for another job as President Muhammdu Buhari has reportedly begun shopping for his replacement.

In a report by ThisDay Newspaper, the president has begun sifting through the resumes of several and possible replacement for the SGF following his alleged corrupt practices.

After the Senate produced documents pinning the SGF to a contract he reportedly awarded his personal company to the tune of N270m, the president reportedly lost his trust and faith in Lawal.

Though Lawal had vehemently denied the allegations, it was reported that the name of Agriculture minister, Audu Ogbeh has propped up as a possible candidate to fill up the position and replace Lawal.
