The Presidency, has said that Buhari never said Babachir Lawal, the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, was innocent of the allegations against him.
This declaration was made known on Monday night, through President Muhammadu Buhari’s Media Aide, Femi Adesina, during an interview on Channels Television’s, ‘Politics Today’, when he was asked why Buhari decided to sack him all of a sudden, after clearing him earlier.
“You did not get it right, you did not get it right”, Adesina said.
“The President at no time said anybody was not guilty.
“What the President said then was that he [Lawal] was not given the right to defend himself. He said the procedure adopted for the indictment that came from the National Assembly, was not proper. 

“The President did not give him a clean bill of health, he only faulted the procedure. So get it right. Do not ascribe what the President did not say to him.”
Recall, that after the Senate Ad-hoc Committee on the North-East had indicted Lawal of corruption, it made recommendations to Buhari, asking him to drop Lawal from his cabinet. 

Hoever, Buhari replied that he could not act on the Senate’s recommendation, due to some reasons.
First, he noted that the recommendation was contained in “an interim report, as against a final report, which ought to have been presented to the Senate in a Plenary for adoption as a binding and final report.”
Buhari also noted that out of the nine members that made up the Ad-hoc Committee, only three signed the report, thereby making it “a minority report”, and “presenting a challenge for the Presidency to determine the weight to attach to the report.”
Furthermore, Buhari stated that the report did not establish that: “Babachir Lawal was ever given an opportunity to appear before the Committee and defend himself, neither was the company (Rholavision Engineering Limited) linked to him.
“In the light of the foregoing, I am not able to approve the recommendation to remove and prosecute Engineer Lawal, on the basis of the Senate Ad-hoc Committee report dated 15th December, 2016”, Buhari had said.
