SERAP gives Buhari 7 days to investigate missing 149 million barrels of crude oil

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to constitute a presidential panel of enquiry to probe the allegations of missing 149 million barrels of crude oil.

In the 2019 audited reports by the Auditor General of the Federation and Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI), revealed that 146 million barrels of crude oil was missing.

A statement made available by SERAP’s Deputy Director, Kolawole Oluwadare urged the President to ensure those responsible were investigated and prosecuted.

The group said the Buhari government has seven days to commence the probe or face legal action.

“As the President and substantive Minister of Petroleum Resources, you and your government need to prioritise getting to the root of these allegations and use the remainder of your term of office to ensure justice and accountability for these serious crimes against the Nigerian people”, the statement partly read.
