President Buhari has directed the Attorney General of the Federation to immediately commence legal actions against members of his cabinet.

The Attorney General will also investigate, recommend and prosecute any official guilty of corruption allegation.

“The attention of the presidency has been drawn to a number of corruption reports leveled against top officials of my administration.

“In that regard, I have instructed the Attorney General of the Federation to investigate the development.

“Any top government official culpable of any wrong-doing will not escape prosecution,” the President said.

‎There have been allegations of corruption against top government officials.

Even the Attorney General of the Federation had been accused of corruption.

The Senate last week asked the president to suspend the Secretary to the Federal Government (SGF), Mr. Babachir David Lawal.

The President also directed the Attorney General to investigate DSS’ corruption allegation leveled against EFCC’ interim chairman.

The president directed the AGF to report on Magu and revert to him today, prior his departure for an official trip to China.

The decision to possibly investigate Lawal followed a report by an ad-hoc committee of the Senate, led by Senator Shehu Sani.

The committee indicted the SGF for allegedly receiving a N233 million contract to cut grass in Yobe State.

Babachir had set up Rholavision in 1990 to carry out information and communications technology services.

But the firm was found by the Senate to be handling a N233 million bush clearing contracts in the North-east in 2016.

Even worse, the Yobe State Government alleged the contract was never executed.

The SGF denied any wrongdoing.

He even accompanied the president to the National Assembly to present the 2017 budget proposal.

After the budget presentation, the SGF told journalists that the Senate was only trying to “rubbish” his personality.

He said: “The senate is talking balderdash; it has developed the habit of the bring-him-down syndrome.”
