A group, Arewa Group Media, an offshoot of Buhari Network for Change, on Thursday called for the resignation of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, stressing that he had failed in promoting government policies.
The national coordinator of the group, Abdulmajid Kwamand, said this at a media parley in Kano.
Kwamand added that the SGF “was not doing anything to promote the good policies of President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.”
He said, “This administration possesses the basic policies needed for national development, which is also highly commendable. But unfortunately, people like the SGF are among officials in this government who are not doing anything to publicise the many achievements recorded under Buhari’s leadership.
“During the last administration of (former President Goodluck) Jonathan, almost all political appointees in his administration had participated in one way or the other in propagating, promoting and assisted in protecting their type of policies. Let them sit-up or resign honourably.”
As of press time, calls made to the telephone of the Director of Press and Public Relations in the SGF Office, Bolaji Adebiyi, were not returned. He was also yet to respond to an email sent by one of our correspondents.
Similarly, the Assistant Director of Press, Mohammed Nakorji, refused to comment on the issue. (Punchng.com)
