Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has come out to urge the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari to publish the names of those indicted in the alleged misappropriation of over N6 trillion in the running of the Niger Delta Development Commission between 2000 and 2019.

SERAP recently revealed this in an open letter dated 25 September 2021 and signed by SERAP deputy director Kolawole Oluwadare, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, Buhari needs to direct the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice Mr Abubakar Malami to oversee the publishing of the culprits as documented in the recent Forensic Audit Report on NDDC asap.

He added that taking such a decisive step would aid the victims’ right to restitution, compensation and guarantee of non-repetition.

His words, “Taking these decisive steps would advance the victims’ right to restitution, compensation and guarantee of non-repetition, as well as improve public confidence in the fight against corruption.”

“Using the audit report to genuinely combat the corruption epidemic in the NDDC and rein in those indicted would alleviate poverty, improve access of Nigerians to basic public goods and services, and enhance the ability of your government to meet its human rights and anti-corruption obligations.”
