Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s committee which investigated allegations of corruption against the suspended secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal and the Director General of the NIA, Ayo Oke, has submitted two reports to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Vice President who addressed State House Correspondents after the closed door event said that the President would act on the detailed recommendations in the interest of the Nigerian people.

Although Osinbajo refused to disclose some of the recommendations made by the committee as it would be preempting Buhari, he noted that Buhari would study the report and take his own decisions.

“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, were to find out based on the facts that we had available to us and based on interview of witnesses what transpired in both cases that were before us.

“The one involving the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the one involving the D-G NIA, we have now concluded that and we have submitted a full report with recommendations to Mr President.”

Prompted to give insight into the recommendations Osinbajo said “of course I cannot give you any kind of details because the President has to look at it, has to study the report and then make his own decisions based on that report.

“Well I think that as you can imagine that we are always fair minded and the whole approach is to ensure that justice is done in all cases.

“It is in the interest of the government and also in the interest of the nation that things are done properly, that there is due process in anyway.

“That’s is the proper thing to do and you can be sure that we will do the right thing.”

Asked further to disclose the recommendations he remarked again, ‘Oh, I cannot tell the recommendations. How can I? This is a document which we have just presented to Mr President.

“He is the one who will read the recommendations, read the facts in the recommendations and then make a judgment. But I cannot. We cannot do that. That will be preemptive of him’.”

Osinbajo stated that Buhari thanked the committee for a job well done adding that those who wished to get the details had to really wait.

NAN reports that the committee was set up to investigate allegations of financial misdeeds involving Lawal in contracts awarded for IDPs camps  in Borno.

Ayo Oke became a subject of probe after the EFCC found  $43million in an apartment in Lagos.

The committee was set up on April 19 and given two weeks to complete the assignment and report back.

About the time the report was ready, President Buhari had embarked on medical journey to the United Kingdom. (NAN)
