President Muhammadu Buhari is considering replacing suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal with ex Edo state governor Adams Oshiomhole or former Deputy Senate Majority Leader, Senator Olorunnimbe Mamora, Thisday reports.

Lawal was recently suspended after being indicted by the senate of inflating government contracts and awarding them to himself. The presidency has set up a committee to look into the matter and there are talks that his suspension may not be lifted.

“The general belief is that Babachir Lawal may not survive the findings of the probe panel, so a shortlist has been drawn up," a reliable presidency source said. “Two names featured prominently on the list. They are Adams Oshiomhole and Olorunnimbe Mamora.”

On the expiration of Oshiomhole's tenure in office, Buhari had said he deserved a federal appointment, having in his estimation done well as a two-term governor of Edo State.
