CBN Sued Over Buhari Government Palliatives- Farouq, Emefiele,

Posted by on June 28, 2020 0

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has filed a lawsuit with the Federal Court in Abuja against the Bukhara government and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

He wants to publish the names of Nigerians who have so far benefited from cash payments, food distribution and other palliative and assistance services during the blockades in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun because of COVID-19.

In complaint number FHC / ABJ / CS / 657/2020, SERAP is trying to force Sadiya Umar Farouk, Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, and Godwin Emefiele, Governor of CBN, to reveal details of the cost of public and private sector donations to provide social and economic benefits for the poorest people and most vulnerable in this country.

The agency also requested that Farouq and Emefiele be given a current list of donations and the names of those who had made payments based on publicly announced contributions, details of the COVID-19 N 500 billion Intervention Fund and names of beneficiaries.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of SERAP by Kolawole Oluwadare and Joke Fekumo.

It was said that any perception that benefits, funds and donations did not reach the intended recipient would damage public trust and integrity of the entire process and opportunity to distribute benefits to Nigeria.

SERAP found that Farouq and Emefiele were legally required to ensure that information was available in the details of those who had previously benefited from COVID-19 funds and donations.

The group said Nigerians had a legitimate interest in investigating and investigating allegations about how COVID-19 funds and donations were spent.

He insisted that no matter how much discussion and debate were allowed, emotions would not develop without citizens’ access to information.

SERAP states that the principle of disclosure of information about key public interests has been reaffirmed internationally, including joint statements by the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression and Opinion, OSCE Representative for Media Freedom and OAS Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Speech.

No date has been set for hearing this case.
