Written by thereachfm on February 26, 2020
The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has condemned the passing of a bill seeking to give leaders of federal and state legislatures immunity from prosecution for corruption.
SERAP in a statement issued by its Deputy Director, Kolawole Oluwadare said the move is tantamount to ripping up the nation’s constitution.
The organization, therefore, called on the lower chamber to immediately withdraw the bill, vowing to challenge the decision.
The group warned that if the lawmakers have their way by passing the bill into law, they will succeed in denying Nigerians of their rights to make leaders accountable to the people.
