SERAP Drag APC & PDP To Court For Non-Disclosure Of Campaign Funds

A civil society group, Socio Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, has dragged the PDP and the APC to court for failing to disclose sources of spending on their respective electoral campaigns and other operations linked to the twenty fifteen elections.

The suit which was filed at the Federal High Court in Lagos followed a Freedom of Information request to the national chairman of both parties last month.

SERAP argued that Nigerians have the right to know the sources of their campaign funding.

The group said transparency, accountability, integrity and independence of political parties are important to achieve greater transparency in public life.
