SERAP wins the battle by forcing Laban, Gbajabiamila, to post details about the corruption.
At yesterday’s Federal High Court meeting in Abuja, SERAP won the first round of our effort to get the National Assembly to publish completed public hearings and corruption investigations since 1999.
Judge Ogunbanjo authorized SERAP to request judicial review and request a mandamus order obliging the National Assembly leadership to publish completed public hearings and investigations of corruption in the National Assembly since 1999.
Judge Ogunbandjo’s order has now paved the way for SERAP to continue our case against @nassnigeria @DrAhmadLawan @femigbaja
The lawsuit follows a recent public hearing in the National Assembly on allegations of corruption in ministries, departments and agencies, including the NDDC and NSITF. The reports of several public hearings and investigations into corruption remained secret and the allegations remained unresolved.
SERAP is seeking: “A Mandate Order to compel Dr. Laban and Mr. Gbajabiamila to submit all completed public hearings and corruption investigations to the appropriate anti-corruption agencies to assess whether there is sufficient admissible evidence to prosecute a ‘criminal case’.
Notice Motion FHC / ABJ / CS / 1065/2020 updated for hearing on Tuesday 2 March 2021.
