Ask Niger Republic To Immediately Refund N1.4 Billion And Use It To Offset ASUU Funding-SERAP Tells Buhari Management

SERAP has asked 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 purchasing and donating N1.4 billion vehicles to the neighboring Niger Republic.

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

Reacting, 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 those poor children can go back to school.”
