JUST IN!!! SERAP tells Buhari’s administration to tell Niger Republic to refund the N1.4 billion given to them and use it to offset ASUU funding

Socio-Economic Rights And Accountability Project (SERAP) has told the Buhari administration to demand a refund of the N1.4billion it gave to Niger Republic authorities and use the refund to offset ASUU funding.

On Wednesday, August 3, the Nigerian government confirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari approved the purchase and donation of vehicles, worth N1.4 billion, to neighboring Niger Republic.

This sparked outrage and the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, said that the donation was to help Niger address its security concerns.

This didn’t go down well with the civil society group, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) tweeted: “The Buhari administration must immediately ask Niger Republic authorities to refund the N1.4 billion approved for them to buy vehicles, and use the money to offset the funding for ASUU, so that poor children can go back to school.”
