Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, who was sacked for allegedly diverting funds meant for IDPs, has spoken for the first time after his sack from office.
Speaking on life outside government while addressing some newsmen in Abuja, Lawal said “before I came into government, I was a very successful businessman, a world renowned IT consultant.
I abandoned that and came into government and was earning N930, 000 every month. Now, I have been sacked. Before then, I had a farm, 1000 hectares of farm land which I could not pay attention to because I was doing government job.
Now, I have gone back to my farm and I now have 4000 hectare under cultivation. Last year, I earned close to half a billion Naira from my farm.
I have a cattle ranch that I am developing gradually and I am back to IT consultancy. I will say life is good. Was I like this before? Everybody that sees me now tells me, you are looking good.”
