The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has urged Nigeria’s 36 state governors and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, to account for the spending of Federal Account Allocation Committee allocations to states and the FCT since 2019.

SERAP also urged them “to invite Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to jointly track and monitor the spending of the Federation Account Allocation Committee allocations by your state and the FCT and to probe any allegations of corruption linked the allocations.”

SERAP’s requests followed reports that the Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) disbursed N1.123 trillion naira to the federal, state, and local governments for March 2024 alone. States collected N398.689 billion naira. SERAP’s request was contained in the Freedom of Information inquiry dated April 20, 2024, and signed by its Deputy Director, Kolawole Oluwadare.
