The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has asked the Federal Government to publish weekly details of exact funds and other resources allocated by the authorities and received from the private sector, as well as details of use and planned use of any such funds and resources to combat the spread of coronavirus (or COVID-19) in Nigeria.

In two Freedom of Information requests sent to Dr. Osagie Ehanire, Minister of Health and Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, Director General, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), SERAP said it is concerned about the lack of transparency in the use of the funds and resources being mobilized to combat coronavirus.

SERAP is also asking the Federal Government to disclose information on the exact number of tests that have been carried out for high-ranking public officials and politicians.
