Former governor of Akwa Ibom State, Obong Victor Attach has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint Minister of Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu as Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).
Buhari had suspended the incumbent SGF, Babachir Lawal last week over alleged contract fraud.
The President also set up a committee headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to investigate the allegations.
He said apart from the CPC, all the parties that came together to form the APC have not been adequately represented.
Attach said he had always expected Onu to be appointed SGF being the leader of ANPP .
He said, “The APC is made up of the defunct ACN, ANPP, CPC, and later the New PDP. The CPC produced the president, The APC Leader, Asiwaju Tinubu, nominated someone as the vice president, those from the PDP control the National Assembly and I had always thought that the ANPP should produce the SGF and that person is Ogbonnaya Onu, their leader who is a man of integrity and has a lot of experience as a former governor, party leader and a minister.
“So, I was quite surprised that he did not get it in the first place, unless he says he does not want it, then they can nominate another person from the ANPP bloc, but still from the South East.”
He also said the Senate decision to reject Magu as EFCC chairman indicated its resolve to frustrate the fight against corruption.
