A former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, has revealed that he made close to a billion Naira last year from his farm.
“I was earning N930,000 monthly as the SGF, now that I have returned to my farm and reactivated it after my sack, I now have 4,000 hectares under cultivation, he said.
“Last year, I earned close to half a billion naira from my farm proceeds, I have a cattle ranch that I am developing gradually and I am back to IT consultancy, life is now good,” he stressed.
“I am a world renowned IT consultant and I have a very large farm, spanning over 1,000 hectares, which I abandoned to join governance.
“Let me shock you, before I came into government, I have been in business, I was a very successful businessman.
Babachir, who was sacked from the position over corruption allegations, said that in spite of the situation that surrounded his leaving office, he had no regret, adding that his sack was a blessing in disguise.
“everything that happened to a man is for his own good; my sack I would say, is rather a blessing in disguise.
“Let me tell you, nothing happened to me. Right from the beginning of the saga, I knew that the whole thing was fabricated and that was why I did not give any damn from the beginning.
“The reason some people don’t like me is because I am so confident of myself. Did you hear me defend myself that time, I didn’t do it and I will not do it because I know that they are fabricated,” he said.
He said that those opposed to Buhari’s re-election were probably blind to his numerous achievements.
“I know that President Buhari has done very well to be re-elected over and over again, I wonder whether those still in doubt have not seen infrastructure, construction and other things he has been doing.
