SERAP urges Buhari to probe ‘missing’ N106b in MDAs

The panel also called on Buhari to instruct Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Ms. Zainab Ahmed, to set up a public notice system to name and shame the 149 MDAs accused, including those who report reported not to have transferred more than N 55 billion

SERAP said: “Anyone suspected of being responsible should be prosecuted where appropriate, if there is enough admissible evidence and missing public funds should be reclaimed in full. “

In a letter dated April 17, 2021, signed by SERAP Deputy Director Kolawole Oluwadare, the organization said:” The reported lack of public funds reflects the failure of the accused MDAs to strictly adhere to Ensure transparency and transparency rules and regulations governing accountability and the failure of MDA leadership to promote institutions that uphold the rule of law and human rights. “

According to SERAP, reclaiming the alleged lack of public funds would reduce pressure on the federal government to borrow more money to finance the budget and enable the authorities to fulfill the country’s human rights obligations to the gradual realization of the rights of the Nigerians meet to quality health care and education as well as to reduce the growing national debt.
