The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has sued the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, for failing to disclose specific names and details of contractors and companies that allegedly failed to execute electricity projects after collecting funds from 1999 to 2018.

In the suit filed last week at the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos, SERAP is seeking an order for leave to apply for judicial review and an order of mandamus compelling Fashola to provide specific details on the names and whereabouts of the defaulting contractors.

It gave Fashola 14 days to publish “the names of all contractors and companies engaged in the power sector since 1999, details of specific projects and the amounts paid to the contractors and companies, details on the level of implementation of electricity projects and their specific locations across the country.

“Publishing the names will make it hard for contractors and companies to get away with complicity in grand corruption.”
