From Femi Oyelola Kaduna
A group. the Reset Foundation has called on the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation Lawal Babachir to face his travails with the Economic and Finance Crimes Commission (EFCC) rather than making prediction that Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar cannot win election in his home state.
The chairman of the group, Samuel Kantiyok made the assertion in a statement made available to the media in Kaduna yesterday The group reacting to a recent interview granted by Babachir to a national daily, ( Not Peoples Daily) where he said the former Vice President, cannot win election even in his home state of Adamawa, talk more of the entire country.
The group added that it was unfortunate that Babachir, whom corruption cases cost him his job at the presidency could open his mouth to speak against a person who had served the nation as a vice president and willing to serve again as president.
Kantiyok further said, “Though it is not in the character of our group to respond to such comment coming from the calibre of Lawal Babachir who lacks national credibilty, but in order to save gullible Nigerians from swallowing line, hook and sinker such comment, we decided to react rather a bit late which is deliberate.
“We are therefore demanding that if President Muhammadu Buhari is actually fighting corruption, then his former SGF, Babachir should be tried in the law court for corruption.
“We also believe that if Atiku is given the privilege to serve, he will provide dividends of democracy to every Nigerian home.”
