Babachir/Oke: Emulate Jacob Zuma, Sack Incompetent Ministers Now — Timi Frank


By Teddy Nwanunobi

Abuja (Sundiata Post) — As the dust is yet to settle, following the suspension of the duo of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), David Babachir Lawal, and the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to play the South African President, Jacob Zuma, by sacking the incompetent ministers in his cabinet.

Buhari, on Wednesday, surprised millions of Nigerians with the announcement to suspend, without delay, Lawal and Oke, while investigations are carried out on the various allegations against them.

The President directed that the most senior permanent secretary and the most senior officer in the NIA should promptly take over from both Lawal and Oke, respectively, during the period of investigations.

In his reaction, Frank commended Buhari for setting up a committee to investigate the circumstances surrounding the recovered large amounts of money from a Lagos State house.

He, however, called on Buhari to take a step further by immediately sacking all the serving “cabinet members, who (have), in one way or the other, brought disrepute to the administration of the APC”.

Frank, who maintained that the suspension of both was long overdue, had earlier written an open letter to the President to demand openness in the controversial money recovered by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He added that the suspension of the NIA boss will boost the confidence of Nigerians in the fight against corruption in the country.

“We believe in the committee set up by Mr. President. This committee will come up with a result that will please Nigerians.

“Mr. President should take more bold steps like this to sack all the incompetent hands in his government. Some of this actions are long overdue, it is high time President Buhari sack all the incompetent hands in this government.

“Nigerians want to see a type of actions President (Jacob) Zuma took in South Africa. This government must do more to ensure that the act of corruption become a thing of the past in Nigeria by getting to the root of this controversial $49M and anybody find guilty must be prosecuted,” Frank said.

Sundiata Post reports that a three-man committee, comprising the Hon. Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, and the National Security Adviser (NSA), headed by the Vice President, is to conduct both investigations.

“The Committee is to submit its report to the President within 14 days,” a statement signed by Buhari’s Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Femi Adesina, added.
