SERAP to Buhari: Explain withdrawal of $1bn to fight Boko Haram

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has sent an open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari “welcoming the inauguration of the Audit Committee on the Recovery and Management of Stolen Assets as a partial fulfilment of the judgment by Justice Idris,” and requesting him to use his “leadership position to strengthen and extend the mandate of the committee to cover the periods starting from the return of democracy in in 1999, as ordered by the court.”

The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos in a landmark judgment has held that successive governments since the return of democracy in 1999 “breached the fundamental principles of transparency and accountability for failing to disclose details about the spending of recovered stolen public funds, including on a dedicated website.”
