SERAP wants President Buhari to be humble
SERAP has beged President Muhammadu Buhari to be humble enough to respect the Rule Of Law and Enforce four listed Court Judgements against his Government.
The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), on Friday, 23rd May, appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to adhere and respect the rule of law and constitutionalism of the country, by enforcing court judgements.
The SERAP also listed some of the judgements it accused President Buhari of not enforcing:
- “The judgement by Justice M. Idris, ordering his government to publish spending details of stolen funds recovered by governments since 1999.
- “The judgement by Justice Oguntoyinbo, ordering the Federal Government to recover pensions collected by former Governors now serving as Ministers and members of the National Assembly, and directing the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, to challenge the legality of States’ pension laws permitting former Governors, etc, to collect such pensions.
- “The judgment by Justice Mohammed Idris, ordering the prosecution of Senior Lawmakers suspected of padding and stealing N481 billion from the 2016 budget; and the publication of the report of investigations into the alleged padding of the 2016 budget. And
- “The judgment by Justice Obiozor, ordering the immediate release of names of companies that have received public funds to execute electricity projects, but have failed to carry out any projects, and payment details to electricity Contractors, since 1999.”
Recall, that SERAP had earlier this week, written to President Buhari, to copy the Namibia example, by banning the buying of cars for Politicians, Ministers, Governors, Lawmakers, and other top government Officials, in order to save funds to run the economy, amid the coronavirus pandemic.
