Nigeria Integrity Movement NIM Applaud Senate for Not Confirmation of Mangu,calls for Immediate Sacking of Monguno, Babachir
The group in a press statement, issued to www.spynigeria.com, stated that the refusal of the Senate to confirm Magu is, no doubt, the biggest blow on the authority of Buhari presidency so far.
The Ledge on which the woeful Buhari govt is resting on is anti-corruption war. The rejection of Magu is an irreparably indictment of Buhari
Apparently Magu owns several undocumented Houses according to Cable
The integrity of Mr President us fast dwindling , Mangu has turned EFCC to money making Agency , and mere political attacking dog , and we are not surprise at what happened today, the group said.
We also called on the President to as a matter of fact do away with those sides that are becoming liability to his administration the involvement of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation in squandering money meant for IDP by awarding dubious Cintract to himself is worrisome ,
SGF Babachir’s response thus far on the allegations leveled against him by the Nigerian Senate is neither here nor there. Nothing in his response (so far) has explained why more than 70 trailers of IDPs food have vanished under his watch, or why 270 million naira was (allegedly) spent to cut grass on an IDPs camp when no (any) grass was cut and when the most pressing need of the IDPs was food and not any grass cutting exercise, and neither has his tepid and arrogant response explained why the billions of naira entrusted to the Presidential Initiative on the North East (PINE), which is under his direct supervision, made any impact in the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the Northeast! The refugees are still homeless, and are dying under the crushing weight of hunger and diseases due to persistent diversion of their foods, medicine, and other relief materials by wicked and cruel public officials.
And neither was there any explanation or defense on the weighty allegations that he awarded contracts to his companies and those of his cronies on New Year’s Day – 1st January 2016 – which was a public holiday, nor did he respond to the charge that the contracts were not even advertised, and that he paid between 95% to 100% of the sums upfront without the work being done!
You cannot be asking corrupt judges and the corrupt leadership of the National Assembly to step aside for proper investigation and trial of their own cases but condone Pastor David Babachir Lawal to remain as SGF in the midst of very weighty and grievous allegations against him. That will not be the definition of CHANGE in this context.
Worthy of note is direct involvement of the National Security Adviser in Dasuki gate ,You may recall that the Panel of Inquiry inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari was reported to have submitted its report to the President, indicting Major-General Babagana Monguno (rtd.), the National Security Adviser (NSA), the Minister of Interior, Gen Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau Retd and 10 others over their alleged involvement in the corruption that greeted the arms purchase.
What of President Chief of Staff involvement in the MTN bribery allegation ?
Buhari reportedly receives evidence showing Chief of Staff, Kyari took N500m bribe from MTN, The alleged bribe was aimed at softening the heavy fine the Federal Government had imposed on the telecommunication giant, says SaharaReporters.
The Federal Government through the Nigerian Communication Commission, NCC, had in October 2015 slammed MTN with a fine of N1.04 trillion. Yet the man still very active in Buhari Government.
