Senators called for the immediate sack of Lawal, after an adhoc committee accused him of receiving N200milion, for the clearing of invasive plant species in Yobe State.
“The report which we based our decision on is an interim report which means that there will still be a final report,” he said.
“Now, the chairman of that adhoc committee has told the senate and by implication Nigerians that in the next couple of days, that report will be finalised.
“The question of fair hearing by our procedures – every public hearing that we do is advertised. There was an advertisement and all the stakeholders were expected to appear before that committee.
“The SGF was formally invited, there was a letter where the permanent secretary in the SGF office stated that they have sent a representative who swore on oath that he is competent to answer all questions raised.
“Also the house of reps said they also had a similar intervention where they invited him and he didn’t appear.”
