Boss Mustapha as the new Secretary to the Government of the Federation. Individually and collectively, in the social media we were stoned with everything.

Also on the top of the Senate's investigation is allegation of misappropriation of funds and non-remittances to the Federation Account against some revenue agencies and other ministries, departments and agencies of government.

"I am proud of this senate: We have other investigations that are pending, the committees in chrge of these investigations should finalise their investigations soon so that at the end of the day we shall be vindicated", he said.

We must continue to keep the flag flying".

While some hold the opinion that prosecuting the officials would have been a more suitable sanction for the offences they allegedly committed, the President's aid explained that if the need arose for them to be prosecuted then the president had no power to prevent that from happening.

While they cautiously commended the President for sacking the two men after an indication of involvement in corruption, the groups demanded their immediate prosecution and release of the report that indicted them.

"But the President by the virtue of the position he occupies is the only one who has all the information and he would do what is necessary at the right time, now we have been vindicated and it shows that the President has not in anyway waiver his commitment not to tolerate corruption at any level no matter who is involve", the APC spokesman stated.

But the committee found that all the contracts were "awarded under the principle of emergency procurement stipulated in section 43 (i) and (ii) but absolute disregard for sub-section (iii) of the same section 43 of the Public Procurement Act".
