Human rights group, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP has filed a lawsuit asking the Federal High Court in Abuja to stop the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), from spending “N26bn in the 2022 presidency budget on local and foreign travels, meals and refreshments, ‘sitting allowance’, ‘welfare package’, and office building.”

 

This was contained in a suit with number FHC/ABJ/CS/1361/2021 filed last Friday.

In the suit, SERAP is seeking “an order of mandamus to direct and compel President Buhari to cut the N26bn presidency budget on local and foreign travels, meals and refreshments, and to send a supplementary appropriation bill to the National Assembly to reflect the reduction.”

 

SERAP is also seeking “an order of mandamus to direct and compel President Buhari to publish spending details on the State House Medical Center since May 29, 2015, to date; and to redirect some of the money on travels and meals to improve public healthcare facilities across the country.”



The rights group is arguing that “the government would continue to borrow to fund the country’s budget until there is a substantial cut to the cost of governance. It is in the public interest to stop the government from spending so much money on these items. Persistent borrowing is neither sustainable nor fair to the Nigerian people.”
