Defunct CPC members urge Buhari to sack Babachir now

President Muhammadu Buhari

A forum of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in the 17 Southern states has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to either consider their former national chairman Chief Tony Momoh or Engr. Buba Galadima as the next Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).
The forum, under the aegis of the Southern Mandate also demanded for outright sack of the suspended SGF, Engr. Babachir Lawal, for having a “penchant for corruption” contrary to the focus of the APC government.
The national coordinator of Southern Mandate, Comrade Ikonomwan Francis, In a statement, said the request was an opportunity for President Buhari to right the wrong “created in the appointment he has been making so far by replacing the SGF with Prince Tony Momoh or political workaholic Engr. Buba Galadima.”
The statement reads: “We core members of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in the seventeen southern states in Nigeria under the auspices of Southern Mandate wish to call on President Mohammadu Buhari to as a matter of urgency out rightly sack the suspended SGF Babachir Lawal. We have taken time to x-ray his antecedents; our research reveals that he is very arrogant, mean and has no respect for constituted authority. His attitude towards our distinguished Senators of the Federal Republic is a clear demonstration of this fact and also he has no respect for democracy, therefore has no business benefiting from democratic institutions. It becomes very expedient for Mr. President to sack him immediately and the anti-graft agency should prosecute him without delay.”
