A Civil Society Group, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), has filed a suit against the Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, over an alleged missing 30 trillion naira.
The suit, filed at the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, followed a Freedom of Information request by SERAP to the Finance Minister.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister for the Economy, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has described the suit by SERAP as a politically motivated action.
She stated that the suit will fail because it lacked credibility.
She asserted that the action was the latest in the series of attacks against her by persons and groups who were getting increasingly frustrated because the economy, despite their propaganda, is still standing firm.
