Mr Timi Frank, member of All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack appointees, including cabinet members, who had brought the Federal Government to disrepute.
He said this on Wednesday in Abuja, while reacting to the suspension of Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Babachir Lawal by the president and the Director-General of National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Amb. Ayo Oke.
Frank noted that the suspension of the SGF and the NIA boss was long overdue but that it would boost the confidence of Nigerians in the Federal Government`s fight against corruption in the country.
Reacting, the SGF said he was not aware of his suspension by the presidency.
But Frank expressed confidence that the three-member committee set up by the president to investigate the matters would come up with a result that would please Nigerians.
The president should take more bold steps like this to sack all the incompetent hands in his government.
Some of these actions are long overdue; Nigerians want to see a type of action President Zuma took in South Africa.
This government must do more to ensure that the act of corruption become a thing of the past in Nigeria by getting to the root of this controversial 49 million dollars,’’ he said.
Frank added that anybody found wanting at the end of the investigation should be prosecuted.
