Buhari has been slow in taking action on Babachir Lawal, Ayo Oke's probe – Itse Sagay

Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption (PACAC), Itse Sagay has said action has been “too slow” on the report of the panel which probed Babachir Lawal, suspended secretary to the government of the federation, and Ayo Oke, director-general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).

Speaking on a Channels TV programme on Sunday, Sagay said Buhari should take an immediate decision.

“I have no doubt in my mind that the present government is actually fighting corruption in accordance with its mandate and promises. There is no question about that,” he said.

“But on the specific issue of the suspended secretary to the federal government and the director-general of the NIA, I would agree that action has been much too slow and there should be immediate decision on this matter so that we can put it to rest and move on. I agree with that.

“I think there is an even-handed approach to the issue of fighting corruption. Everybody who is suspected of corruption or the commission of economic and financial crimes will be investigated and the EFCC and the ICPC who are the bodies who are invested with the authority to act in such matters will act in accordance with their own priority.”
