Are we foreign media? SERAP tells Buhari to address Nigerians on the ownership of the $50m found in Ikoyi


“Democracy abhors secrecy, and for Nigerians to be able to hold elected leaders accountable, they must have access to information such as on the real identities of those behind the Ikoyi cash haul. This transparency is fundamental to the operation of the government’s whistle-blower policy, and inextricably rooted in the notions of good governance and the rule of law under the 1999 Nigerian constitution (as amended),”  - SERAP on the $50m found in Ikoyi


Background
  • SERAP is a Human rights advocacy group meaning Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project.
  • They want to President to address Nigerians and tell us who owns the property where the money was found.
Our take on the matter
  • We do not need Buhari to address us, just use your FOI right to request the Lagos State Government to give that information.
  • Besides, doesn't it appear that the President loves foreign media? So let us pray that CNN or Al-Jazeera will interview him soonest on the matter. 
Conclusion
  • If there is one thing Nigerian leaders need to learn, it is the art of effective communication.
