Sacked-For-Corruption Ex-SGF, Babachir Lawal, Accuses Adamawa Governor Of Embezzling N87bn

Babachir Lawal, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), has asked Mohammed Umar Jibrilla, Governor of Adamawa State, to explain how he spent a total of N87billion tat accrued to 21 local councils in the past three years. Lawal’s accusation comes just as a transparency group in the state, the Adamawa Transparency Organization, asked the Governor to account for the funds.

Lawal castigated Bindow over his “bizarre annexure of local council funds”, describing the action as “unconstitutional and therefore antithetical to civilised democratic culture”. He said he was compiling evidence of mismanagement of the funds for appropriate action. He also accused Jibrilla of nepotism and divisive governance, saying “there seems to be a deliberate plan to sideline Christians in his array of political appointees”.

Commenting on the recent appointment of eight special advisers, Lawal said such an action is capable of undermining APC's chances in the 2019 elections.
