Babachir’s man, Mustapha is the new SGF
Babachir Lawal, former SGF
President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, (SGF), Babachir Lawal and appointed his right hand man, Boss Mustaph in his place.
It is indeed a new wine in old skin as the former SGF was instrumental to Mustapa’s appointment as the Managing Director of Nigerian Inland Waterways Authority, (NIWA).
Also given the boot was the former Director General of the National Intelligence Agency, (NIA), Ambassador Ayo Oke.
This was contained in a tweet by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr.. Femi Adesina.
The tweet read, “PMB terminates appointments of Babachir Lawal, suspended SGF, and Amb Ayo Oke, former DG, NIA. Mr Boss Mustapha is new SGF.”
The appointment of the new SGF has finally put to rest the speculations that the President might have settled for a South Easterner for the post of SGF.
