Sack all indicted

Buhari did not order their immediate arrest and prosecution, saying the anti-corruption panel should conclude its investigations first.

"He probably needed to get a few things done and as I said looking at various options and various senerios as the leader of this country, you have all of the intellectual opinion available in this country at your own disposal and so therefore the president must be given the right to seek the best and act in the best interest of the country". I want to commend the government for doing what is right.

He recalled that the saga of embattled former Chairman of Presidential Task force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, started in the Senate, vowing that the chamber would chase the matter to end.

The Presidency on Monday said the nation's security agencies were free to go after the sacked Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, and the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ambassador Ayo Oke.

A former House of Representative member during Nigeria's second republic, Dr. Junaid Mohammed has made a shocking revelation about Boss Mustapha, the newly appointment Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).

"As a group of genuinely concerned citizens, we must remind President Buhari that the fight against corruption is sharply losing momentum because top government officials in the president's cabinet are being shielded by the president".

The party added that Lawal and Oke should be investigated by anti-graft agencies as it was done in the case of Sambo Dasuki and others facing trails on corruption-related allegations.

Also fired was spy chief Ayodele Oke, director general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), who was allegedly connected with a mysterious cache of $43 million in NIA funds recovered from an upscale Lagos apartment.

"It was a very tough journey ensuring that we continued to defend the integrity of this institution".

"It is important for Nigerians to realise that it gives them no good to spread falsehood to demean the institution of the National Assembly".

"The committee is to submit its report to the president within 14 days".

Na'Allah maintained that the Senate had shown its commitment to dealing with corrupt public officials, promising that they would continue to do so without falling prey to sponsored protests by some gullible Nigerians.
