The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack persons he described as “wrong pegs” in government.
Melaye said this in his reaction to the sacking of former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, by the President on Monday.
While the senator described Lawal’s sacking as “belated,” he, however called for extension of the “sack drug” to the “wrong pegs” in Buhari’s administration.
Melaye said, “Excellent move by Mr. President, though coming late. Boss Mustapha is a decent man; intellectually mobile and administratively sagacious. This ‘sack drug’ must extend to other indicted public officials, including the wrong pegs in this government.
“There is urgent need for a rejig. We must use the less than two years remaining to fulfill our campaign promises because we are poles away from our promises.”
