Nigeria appoints new Secretary to the Government.
Lawal has been replaced by Mr Boss Gida Mustapha, said Buhari’s media adviser Femi Adesina. Until his appointment as SGF, Mustapha was the Managing Director of the National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA).
Adesina did not state if anyone has been appointed to replace Oke.
Both men were suspended in April for their alleged complicit in separate corrupt practices.
Lawal was grilled by the Osinbajo-led three-man Presidential panel over the N220 million meant for welfare of Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in North-East, while Oke was suspended over the discovery of large amounts of foreign and local currencies by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in a residential apartment at Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos, over which NIA made a claim.
