I Will Not Appear Before Senate Committee- Babachir Lawal

By Ikenga Chronicles March 22, 2017

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir David- Lawal, on Wednesday informed the Senate that he will not appear before the
committee probing his alleged involvement in the diversion of funds for the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in the North East.

Recall that the SGF was invited by the Senate ad-hoc Committee investigating the Mounting Humanitarian Crisis in the North East to appear before it on Thursday.

Lawal was alleged to have misapplied billions of naira meant for the care of displaced persons in the North East.

The report also said Lawal compromised his position by allegedly awarding contracts to a company he had interest in.

But Lawal in a letter titled: “Letter of invitation” and addressed to Senator Sani told the lawmaker that he would not appear before the committee because he had gone to court to challenge his invitation.

The Lawal’s letter obtained by our reporter read in part, “Dear Distinguished Senator Shehu Sani,

“Your letter of invitation to appear before the above committee refers.

“I wish to kindly request that you draw the attention of other members of the committee that I will not be able to appear before the committee primarily because I have gone to court to challenge the invitation among others.

“Please find attached the court documents.

Please accept my highest regards.

“Engr, Babachir David Lawal
