The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari and the 36 state governors to provide specific information regarding the spending of public funds appropriated as security votes between 2011 and 2019.

In separate Freedom of Information (FoI) requests sent to the president and the governors, SERAP is seeking to know if public funds meant to provide security and ensure the protection of the lives of Nigerians have been spent for that purpose.

SERAP cites the current security realities in the country as the reason for requesting the information in the FoI requests dated April the 12.

In a statement by its Deputy Director, Kolawole Oluwadare says, the group is concerned that rather than serving the citizens, the appropriation of public funds as security votes over the years would seem to serve high-ranking government officials at the federal and states levels.
