SERAP Backs EFCC’s Intended Probe Of Past Govt Over $16bn Power Project




The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), has thrown its weight behind the decision of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to probe President Muhammadu Buhari’s predecessors over spending in the power sector.

EFCC was reported to have said that it would soon begin probe into $16 billion power project scam under Obasanjo, Yar’Adua and Jonathan.

Reacting to the claim of EFCC, SERAP has stated that the probe would end impunity for corruption and encourage youth civic engagement in the anti-graft fight in the country.

According to reports, the commission said the probe will avail an opportunity for the anti-graft agency to show that the former heads of state and other high-ranking public officials were not immune from investigation and prosecution for allegations of grand corruption in Nigeria.

SERAP said Nigerians had long been denied justice and the opportunity to get to the bottom of why they continue to pay the price for corruption in the power sector, adding that while staying in darkness, they were made to pay crazy electricity bills.
