Ibrahim Dankwambo, Gombe State Governor, has queried the arrest of Babachir Lawal, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
He said Lawal’s arrest may not be unconnected to the lengthy letter by ex President Olusegun Obasanjo advising President Muhammadu Buhari not to seek re-election.
The governor who tweeted on Thursday questioned why it took the President a year to arrest the former SGF, saying it was too late to arrest the ex-SGF despite claim of fighting corruption.
According to his Twitter, “Why did it take one year to arrest Babachir Lawal? Is it because former President Obasanjo spoke up yesterday? It’s too late to deceive Nigerians.
“You can’t be deceiving Nigerians on one hand you want to fight corruption and next minute you are supporting it. It’s too late,” he said.
