SERAP sues Fashola over power sector privatisation

A human rights advocacy group, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, has sued the Minister of Power, Works and Housing,  Babatunde Fashola, for an alleged failure to account for the spending on the privatisation of the electricity sector and the exact amount of post-privatisation spending on generation companies, distribution companies and the Transmission Company of Nigeria to date.

The agency asked Fashola to explain if such spending came from budgetary allocations or other sources.

In a suit filed last week at the Federal High Court, Lagos, SERAP is seeking an order for leave to apply for judicial review and an order of mandamus directing or compelling Fashola to provide specific details on the privatisation of the electricity sector, the names of all the companies and individuals involved; and to publish widely including on a dedicated website any such information.
