Following media reports regarding a court judgment alleged to have been entered against the Federal Government of Nigeria and Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala in respect of an action by the Socio-Economic Rights Agenda, SERAP, pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, the former minister of finance has said that she had not been informed about any matter against her, but for news reports claiming delivery of judgment.
This was contained in a press statement made available to journalists.
According to the statement, the former minister has instructed her lawyers to take steps to set aside the judgment as it affects her, explaining that she was never served with any court processes in relation to the said matter.
The statement added that as at the time media reports claimed that the high court ordered the federal government and Dr. Okonjo-Iweala to provide information relating to N30 trillion allegedly unaccounted for, she was no longer a serving minister.
It further added that the decision of SERAP to anchor its case on a baseless and unsubstantiated allegation by former CBN governor, Professor Charles Soludo, that N30 trillion, about seven times the total annual budget during the Jonathan administration, is missing confirms SERAP’s dubious motives and its role as a tool for politically motivated acts.
It would be recalled that there were speculations that Dr. Okonjo-Iweala would be called by the present administration to account for N30 trillion which is missing from the federation account.
