 2021 Budget: SERAP Asks NASS To Stop Buhari From Selling Govt Properties
SERAP, Buhari

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged the National Assembly to stop President Muhammadu Buhari’s administratiok from selling public properties to fund the 2021 budget.

The group called on Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, and Speaker of House of Representatives Femi Gbajabiamila to urgently review the 2021 appropriation legislation to prevent the sales of public properties.

This was contained in a statement issued on Sunday by its deputy director, Kolawole Oluwadare.

SERAP also urged them to identify areas in the budget to cut, such as salaries and allowances for members and the Presidency.

The group stated that this should be done to save funds to address the growing level of deficit and borrowing.

Recall that the Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed had last week reportedly confirmed that the Federal Government would sell some-government-owned properties to fund the 2021 budget.
