A member of the House of Representatives during the Second Republic, Dr Junaid Muhammed, has revealed that the newly appointed Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, is a first cousin to sacked Babachir Lawal.
Mustapha was on Monday appointed by President Muhammadu to replace Babachir Lawal who was fired the same day.
Reacting to Mustapha’s appointment, Muhammed told PUNCH: “Before you begin to celebrate the appointment of Boss Mustapha as the new SGF, do you know that he is in fact, Babachir Lawal’s first cousin?
“This is a continuation of the cronyism and nepotism the Buhari-led administration has become infamous for.”
Mr. Mustapha is a lawyer, management consultant, politician and businessman.
President Buhari suspended the former SGF in April over corruption and alleged involvement in the N200 million grass-cutting contract of Presidential Initiative in the North East, PINE.
