Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal was at the Presidential Villa, Abuja yesterday, for a campaign launch for his former boss, President Muhammadu Buhari.
Babachir who was sacked on October 30, 2017 following a grass cutting scandal unraveled by a Senate panel was among the dignitaries who attended the launch of a Together Nigeria organized by the Buhari Support Organization (BSO).
Wearing a green kaftan, he was seen with two other persons. Throughout the event that lasted for about three hours, he was not recognized by the Master of Ceremony.
This is the first time he would be seen in the Presidential Villa since his sack. President Muhammadu Buhari was among personalities who graced the event.
Babachir sack follows the report of a three-man panel led by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo that investigated him alongside the former Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ambassador Ayo Oke.
He left around 10.30pm when the programme ended.
Meanwhile President Buhari has assured his teeming supporters that come 2019, hard work and loyalty would be rewarded.
” To all those who contributed to our successes in one way or the other, some of you are feeling disappointed because… I assure you this time around hard work and loyalty would be rewarded adequately,” he said.
