THE report of the panel set up by President Muhammadu Buhari and headed by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to investigate administrative infractions by suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal and Director-General, National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke, would be made public soon.
A government official who pleaded for anonymity disclosed this to Sunday Sun, adding that some aspects of the report were already being implemented but that the full report and the decision of government would be disclosed to the public soon.
One of the panel’s decisions, the government official said, was that Lawal and Oke would remain suspended.
The Acting President was said to have submitted the panel’s recommendations to President Buhari in a meeting they both had before he travelled on Sunday, May 7, for medical consultations.
