"Boss Mustapha has a very long history of political activities and my impression on him is that, apart from being a lawyer with a very good reputation in terms of integrity, he has always been a consistent person in whatever course he pursues".

Saraki recalled that the travails of Lawal emanated from the senate when it commenced probe into the involvement of the former SGF in the alleged grass cutting scandal in the North East.

"He probably needed to get a few things done and as I said looking at various options and various senerios as the leader of this country, you have all of the intellectual opinion available in this country at your own disposal and so therefore the president must be given the right to seek the best and act in the best interest of the country".

"Those who have tried to bring down the institution of the senate, God will vindicate us before their eyes".

He, however, called for expedited action on other investigations pending before committees of the Senate.

"Mr. President, you remember that when we resolved as a Senate to complement the efforts of the Federal Government in the fight against corruption, we said it here and we all took a vow here that we will do whatever that is humanly possible to live by the oath of office we have taken, defend the constitution".

The lawmaker also urged President Buhari to rejig his government machinery in order for the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government to achieve desired results and deliver dividends of democracy to Nigerians as promised them within the remaining time of its tenure.

PDP described the sack of Lawal and Oke without proper information on the panel report as totally unacceptable.

"In the cause of their continued investigation, if they have any matters they come across that are prosecutable, the president will not stop anybody from being prosecuted".

"I want to commend the president for doing what is right. We must keep the flag flying".

"When we started it was just blackmail, we will continue in our commitment to fight corruption, non-selective".

PINE, according to the report of the Senate committee, "awarded 39 contracts to various companies to carry out the removal of invasive plant species plants, rehabilitation/renovation works, food supplies, consultancy services and provision of shelter (supply of tarpaulin cabins) etc".
