The Senate says the sack of former Secretary to Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, has vindicated its position on investigation carried out by its Ad hoc Committee on Mounting Humanitarian Crisis in the North-East.

This followed a Point of Order by the Deputy Leader of the Senate, Bala Na'Allah, at plenary on Tuesday.

"Boss Mustapha has a very long history of political activities and my impression on him is that, apart from being a lawyer with a very good reputation in terms of integrity, he has always been a consistent person in whatever course he pursues".

"The investigation agencies in the country, ICPC, EFCC and others are already into these matters, they are already investigating those things and the President is saying go ahead, do your own investigation without any hinderance - this is the way they have always operated".

"The President accepted the recommendation of the panel to terminate the appointment of Lawal, and has appointed Boss Mustapha as the new Secretary to the Government of the Federation".

"When we started tis crusade, the same Nigerians that we were fighting for were paid to close down the National Assembly in the name of Occupy Nass".
