The suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Babachir Lawal, again failed to appear before the Senate Committee Ad Hoc Committee on Mounting Humanitarian Crisis in the North East, which is probing the alleged contract inflation involving him.
Mr. Lawal’s absence from the committee’s sitting on Thursday would be the third time he would be refusing to honour its invitation to address allegations of corruption.
He is alleged to have awarded contracts running into millions of naira under the Presidential Initiative on the North East, which is headed by him, without due process.
The SGF is also being investigated by another committee set up by the Federal Government, which is headed by the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
