SERAP Gives Buhari Pointers On How To Lift Nigeria From Recession

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to take actions to tackle the economic slump in Nigeria.

Some of these pointers such include “to put the country’s resources at the service of human rights, and to support the less well-off to enjoy an adequate standard of living through cutting the cost of governance and implementing bold transparency and accountability measures” in the government’s response to Nigeria’s second recession in five years.

In the letter dated 21 November, 2020 and signed by SERAP deputy director Kolawole Oluwadare, the organization said: “This economic crisis provides an opportunity to prioritise access of poor and vulnerable Nigerians to basic socio-economic rights, and to genuinely recommit to the fight against corruption. The country cannot afford getting back to business as usual.”
