Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has leveraged on the report by BudgIT which points to loopholes in the 2021 budget.
SERAP, therefore, called on the executive arm of government to investigate Ministries, Departments as well as Members of the National Assembly who are suspected to have slot in N39.5bn for 316 duplicated projects in the 2021 budget.
While making the request on Sunday in a statement by its Deputy Director, Kolawole Oluwadare, the group indicated that anyone responsible after enough evidence should face prosecution and stolen funds should be recovered.
TOS News had earlier reported as published by BudgIT, that there are 316 duplicated capital projects worth N39.5billion in the 2021 budget.
SERAP explained that the misuse of public funds for mysterious projects have reduced the ability of some Ministries and departments.
The group encouraged the government to respect the rights of Nigerians by developing and implementing strategized policies, plans and transparent budgets.
