Reporters: Have you been informed of the suspension?
Lawal: By who? About what. What about you? Have you been informed?
Reporters: Yes sir.
Lawal: By who?
Reporters: By the presidency sir.
Lawal: I have not seen it. I should have been given… I have not seen the press release so I cannot comment on it.
Reporters: It is currently trending online. Are you doubting the authenticity of the statement?
Lawal: I have not seen it.
Reporters: Tell us the outcome of your meeting with the vice-president.
