SERAP urges President Muhammadu Buhari to fire Senator Godswill Akpabio


Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to, within 14 days, set up a presidential panel to probe corruption allegations in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

The body also asked him to suspend, Godswill Akpabio, Niger Delta Minister and all those implicated.

The rights group warned that Buhari’s failure to act will cause it to institute legal proceedings to compel his government to act.

The Organisation demanded that witnesses and whistle-blowers be protected and the findings of the investigation should be made public.

SERAP in a letter by its deputy director, Kolawole Oluwadare, said Nigerians want to see development and prosperity in the Niger Delta and demand that Buhari takes the lead to get to the bottom of the allegations.
