Femi falana accuses the government of not being accountable and transparent in management of COVID-19

Prominent Nigerian lawyer, Chief Femi Falana, SAN, has accused the federal government of not being accountable and transparent in its management of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Falana, the lackadaisical nature of the Nigerian government spans throughout all the levels of the government, notably the state governments.

Falana made the statement on Friday, May 15 during a virtual event hosted by the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP).

His words: “What happens at the federal government level, same goes for the states too. It is the same attitude of lackadaisical attitude. We spend money anyhow, we are not accountable to the people. It is the same picture you get all over the country.”

He also noted that citizens have the responsibility to demand accountability from their leaders and also fight against corruption.
