Mixed reactions trail dismissal of Babachir, Oke
• Stakeholders seek publication of Osinbajo’s report
The Senator representing Lagos West, Solomon Olamilekan Adeola, has urged the Federal Government to make public, the report of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo-led committee.
He made the call, following public opinion that the dismissal of Lawal and Oke was not enough, if the government must prove that it was not partial in its anti-corruption drive.
He told The Guardian that it was a welcome development that President Muhammadu Buhari, had at last, dismissed them after the committee’s report.
He said: “There is the need for Nigerians to await and see what was contained in the committee’s report. We do not know yet if the recommendations were that Lawal and Oke should only be sacked from their various positions, without recommending whether they should go for trial.”
The lawmaker said the onus is now on the government to make the report public, “which of course would add to the credibility of the administration’s ongoing war against graft.
According to him, it would also save the image of the administration against its perceived one-sided war against corruption.
Also, the Chairman, Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, (CACOL), Debo Adeniran, said it was not only expedient that Lawal and Oke were removed, but that Nigerians would not take anything less other than their facing trial.
