The suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr BABACHIR LAWAL, has again, shunned the Senate committee on the humanitarian crisis in the north east whose allegations originally caused his suspension.
The Senate probe committee headed by Senator SHEHU SANI had written LAWAL on Wednesday, asking him to appear before its hearing yesterday.
Briefing journalists two hours after it had waited in vain to hear from BABACHIR, the committee expressed disappointment that the embattled SGF failed to show up.
It was the third time LAWAL would be invited by the committee, which blew the lid of the procurement frauds at the Presidential Initiative for the North East, an intervention agency under the office of the SGF.
According to SHEHU SANI, the committee will compile its report and submit same to the Senate on Tuesday.
