SERAP gives President Buhari 14 days ultimatum tó remove and probe NDDC minister, Godswill Akpabio.
An advocacy group with the name Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), has given President Mohammadu 14 days ultimatum to set up an investigative panel to probe the alleged curropt charges laid on the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
SERAP also called for the suspension of the incumbent Niger Delta Minister, Mr. Godswill Akpabio and those connected with the curropt Allegations.
The advocacy group, in a letter by its deputy director demanded for transparency in the investigation by making their findings available to the public and also called for immunity on the eyewitnesses and whistle-blowers.
SERAP stated that the nonchalant attitude of President Buhari on this issue will lead to legal actions to compel his government to act.
“Where there is relevant admissible evidence, suspected perpetrators should be handed over to appropriate anti-corruption agencies for prosecution”, it noted.
The rights group also called for a physical manifestation of development and prosperity in the Niger Dra region, calling on the president to take the lead.
“A special panel to probe allegations of corruption in the NDDC, and that is able to work closely with anti-corruption agencies, would protect the integrity of the forensic audit, remove the possibility of obstruction of justice, and interference in the process by those suspected to be involved in alleged corruption in the NDDC.”
Furthermore, President Buhari was compelled to build stronger public faith in his government’s anti-corruption fight by sensing messages of strong opposition to curropt practices in the country.
