It was gathered in the morning that the report will be made available to Mr. President around 12pm today.

Recall that Buhari cancelled the federal executive meeting, FEC, in order to allow the Investigative Committee headed by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo on NIA and SGF’s allegations to present its report to him.

However, when newsmen interviewed Osinbajo, he said, “Well as you can imagine we are always fair minded and the whole approach is to ensure that justice is done in all cases,” he said. It is in the interest of the government and also the interest of the nation that things are done properly and that there is due process and that we are not unfair. You can be sure that we will do the right thing,”

“It is in the interest of the government and also the interest of the nation that things are done properly and that there is due process and that we are not unfair. You can be sure that we will do the right thing.

“It is s fact-finding committee as you know and what our terms of reference were was to find out based on the fact available to us and based on the interviews of witnesses of what transpired in those cases of the report one involving the SGF and the other the DG of NIA.

“We have now concluded that and we submitted a full report with recommendations to the president. We cannot, of course, give you any kind of details because the president has to look at the report, study it and then make his own decisions based on that report.

“This is a document which has just been submitted to the president. He is the one who will read the recommendations and the facts and then make a decision.

“If you want to know what is in the report you have to wait, you really have to wait.”

The outcome of the report will be communicated later.
