Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the audit committee on recovery of assets probe the administrations of former presidents, Olusegun Obasanjo, Musa Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan.

SERAP, in a letter to Buhari, titled “welcoming the inauguration of the Audit Committee on the Recovery and Management of Stolen Assets as a partial fulfilment of the judgment by Justice Idris,” requested he uses his “leadership position to strengthen and extend the mandate of the committee to cover the periods starting from the return of democracy in in 1999, as ordered by the court.”

The letter was dated 9 December 2017 and signed by SERAP’s Executive Director, Adetokunbo Mumuni.

SREAP urged Buhari to, “strengthen the capacity of the committee, and to extend the four weeks deadline within which it is expected to submit its report to at least 6 months so that the committee can effectively document the details of information ordered by Justice M.B. Idris.”
