$9.6bn Judgment: CSOs, NLC, others to picket British, Irish embassies

No fewer than 1000 Civil Society Organisations (CSO) are set to picket the British and Irish embassies, Monday September 2, 2019 over the United Kingdom court’s $9.6bn judgment against Nigeria.

The Secretary General of Coalition of Civil Society (CSO) groups, Mr Abubakar Ibrahim, gave the hint during a brief chat Friday in Abuja.

Mr Ibrahim said that apart from the CSOs, the Nigerian Labour Congress (), National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), and other pro-democracy groups are all ready to join the protest next week.

“The protest is going to be massive because we are all displeased with such a fraudulent judgment. Those who are behind this huge corruption must be brought to book,” Ibrahim said.

The President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government has also expressed its readiness to challenge the UK court’s $9.6bn judgment in a United States of America’s court in order to protect Nigeria’s interest and its assets.
