In a suit filed before the Federal High Court, Abuja, SERAP argued that the huge spending by the presidency is neither necessary nor in the public interest, particularly with regards to the scant allocations to education and health.

A statement released by the group noted, “…According to reports, the proposed N26bn on travels, meals, refreshments and the presidential wing of the State House Clinic is more than the proposed allocations for ongoing and new projects in 14 teaching hospitals combined.

“N19.17 billion is allocated to the following teaching hospitals: UNILAG Teaching Hospital—N1.69bn; ABU Teaching Hospital—N2.38bn; University College Hospital, Ibadan—N1.49bn; and UNN Teaching Hospital—N1.38bn.
