SERAP Reacts To Report Of Nigerian Law School Paying Cleaner N32m, Clothing Allowance Of N36m

Earlier today, an audit by the office of the Audit-General uncovered a series of  anomalies in the financial records of the Nigerian Law School.
The Audit report presented to the Senate, indicted the apex legal academic institution for misappropriation and spending without approvals.

The report said the management of the Nigerian Law School illegally paid N32m to the account of an unnamed cleaner over a period of 12 months.

The Auditor-General report also queried the payment of N36m as dressing allowance of 52 workers to the account of a single member of staff in violation of Nigeria’s Financial Act.

It read in part, “The examination of payment records revealed that the Nigerian Law School several times paid N36m to staff as dressing allowance in 2013 alone.

This report has caused a lot of outrage online with many questioning how corruption is thriving in an organization meant to groom the future judiciary of the country.

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has taken to its official Twitter page to call for the prosecution of the perpetrators of this fraud to the fullest extent of the law.
