The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project says the Federal Government must get approval from the National Assembly before taking money from the excess crude account.

Recall that the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) had on Thursday approved$1bn to fight terrorism in the country.

But SERAP warned the government not to be ”reckless” by throwing money at Boko Haram.

“Whatever is not properly appropriated for should not be considered. That is the only way we can maintain sanity in our public expenditure,” SERAP Director, Adetokunbo Mumuni told Punch.

“The Presidency may want to say that security matters are fundamental. But we cannot continue to have all manner of expenditures on Boko Haram. That will be reckless to me.”
