‘Buhari Will SACK Corrupt Officials’- Presidency Warns
The Presidency on Sunday said President Muhammadu Buhari would not hesitate to sack any government official found culpable in any corrupt practices.
The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande, disclosed this in a statement.
Laolu said Buhari would sack government officials same way he did former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, and a former Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ayo Oke.
He stated that the present administration was aware of attempts to raise unsubstantiated claims about the government.
He said, “What Nigerians know is that this administration has shown itself clearly to be above board, and has ensured no sacred cows at all where evidence have been tabled.
“For instance, the President has fired the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation when a case was established, and an EFCC investigation is ongoing.
“This is also the same for the former NIA DG, who was removed and investigations are ongoing.
“There would be prosecutions for corrupt politicians: these are top members of the administration who have been shown the way out because of the cases established against them.”
