Babachir Lawal, Oke might be handed over to EFCC
Buhari set up a panel headed by VP Osinbajo to look into the allegations of corruption levelled against Lawal.
Adesina said the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal and the former boss of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke will not be left out either.
President Buhari set up a panel headed by the Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to look into the allegations of corruption levelled against Lawal.
The panel is also expected to investigate the circumstances surrounding the discovery of funds reportedly belonging to the NIA in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos state.
Speaking further, Adesina said “If it (investigation by the EFCC) gets to that point it will be done but it seems not to have got to that point now.
“After the panel concludes its work and there is anything for the EFCC to look at, I am sure it will be done.
“The government believes that setting up an investigation at this time is right and government has the mandate of the people. It will not satisfy everybody but it does not matter.
“You will never win with some Nigerians, they will always find faults but then, government has been elected and government is in place to do certain things and government would do what it believes to be right at any given time.”
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina made this statement during an interview on Channels Television recently.
