Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that he is not in a position to know whether President Muhammadu Buhari will eventually sack the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir David Lawal and Director General of the National Intelligent Agency (NIA), Mr. Ayo Oke.
Professor Osinbajo, who spoke to news men shortly after submitting to the President, the report of fact-finding committee set up by the President to look into the cases of the two officers of the government, said when asked if heads would roll as a result of the report: “No, how can I tell you? If you want to know what is in the report, you have to wait; you really have to wait.
Even when he was asked to give a brief of what is contained in the report, the Vice President retorted: “of course not. I mean this is a report which contains recommendations to the President.
“It is a fact finding committee as you know and what our terms of reference were was to find out, based on the fact available to us and based on the interviews of witnesses of what transpired in those cases of the report one involving the SGF and the other the DG of NIA. We have now concluded that and we submitted a full report with recommendations to the President.
“We cannot of course give you any kind of details because the President has to look at the report, study it and then make his own decisions based on that report.”
Professor Osinbajo stressed that his committee did its work with fairness to all the parties involved and that the whole approach was to ensure that justice is done in all cases.
“It is in the interest of the government and also the interest of the nation that things are done properly and that there is due process and that we are not unfair. You can be sure that we will do the right thing.”
