SIP Should Remain Under Yemi Osinbajo – Itse Sagay

itse sagayChairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay (SAN) has said the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) was very thorough and professional under the leadership of Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.

According to him, the SIP should not have been removed from the Office of the Vice President, as the decision could slow the progress of the programmes.

He added that Osinbajo handled the SIP in an amazing and brilliant manner.

His words, “The main responsibility that was taken away from the Vice President is the Social Investment Programme which has been taken to the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs”.

“I was given the impression that some people working on the SIP have been moved to that ministry. I think we should wait and see. My approach to things as shown in my support for Magu is that when things are going well, I don’t like disturbing them.

“The Vice President’s office handled the SIP in an impeccable and successful manner. So, I think removing it from his supervision is a risk because it may slow down things.

“Mrs. Mariam Uwais who was the adviser, did a magnificent job. They were thorough, professional and curbed corruption.

“The school feeding programme and other aspects of the programme went well. Those involved in corruption were brought to book and monies were recovered.

“I personally would have wanted things to continue as it was. But those who have the powers have decided that they want to transfer it to a new ministry. I just hope this new ministry does not fall below the stand.”
