HURIWA faults indefinite lockdown
The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has asked the National Assembly to give the N37 billion renovation fund to states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to cushion the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the poor and vulnerable persons.
It made the appeal in letter to the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, while commending the steps and contributions already made by the legislature towards fighting the scourge in the country.
In a letter dated April 11, 2020 and signed by its Deputy Director, Kolawole Oluwadare, SERAP said: “Nigeria is at a crossroads and the leadership of the National Assembly must now decide whether to continue to look after themselves and do little for the country’s poorest or redirect the N37 billion to help ameliorate the sufferings caused by lockdown.
