A civil society group, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, has told the Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, to explain to Nigerians the whereabouts of the N30tn allegedly stolen under her watch.

The group, in a letter to the Minister on Monday, asked her to within 14 days, account for the alleged missing sum or face a legal action.

SERAP’s demand followed the allegation by a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, that not less than N30tn “had been missing or stolen or unaccounted for, or simply mismanaged” under Okonjo-Iweala’s watch as the Minister of Finance.

In the letter signed by its Executive Director, Adetokunbo Mumuni, SERAP said Nigerians had the right to know the whereabouts of the said money as it “represented some accrueable income to the Federal Government in the past four years.”

It said in line with the Freedom of Information Act, “your ministry has a legal duty to render account on the missing N30tn to the beneficiaries (Nigerians) of the trust, if and when called upon to do so.”

This people should learn from president of Uruguay. What is African leaders doing with all these money they don't need? building mansions and buy exotic cars. You will not sleep in two rooms simultaneously and you can't drive two cars at the same time, upon all, is six feet below the ground. African is in deep sleep.

RIGHT FROM DAY ONE, OKONJO IWEALA HAS BEEN NOTHING SHORT OF AN INTELLECTUAL CRIMINAL WHO WORKS ONLY IN THE INTEREST OF THE WESTERN SOCIETY TO EXPLOIT NIGERIA WHILE HER OWN PEOPLE SUFFER. SHE IS A WESTERN PUPPET, CORRUPT, INHUMAN AND A CLEAR DECEIT, A WASTE ON THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY.
