Tanko Al-Makura, Nasarawa governor, says he will need more than seven days to respond to a freedom of information request by the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP).
SERAP had asked President Muhammadu Buhari and all the 36 governors to provide details of what was appropriated for as security votes between 2011 and 2019.
Al-Makura’s response was contained via a letter, with reference number, NS/MOJ/ADM/108/VOL1/65, signed by Nasarawa state attorney-general.
According to Kolawole Oludare, SERAP’s deputy director, Al-Makura promised to revert to the organisation when the information is ready.
“I refer to your letter dated 12th April 2019 requesting information on the spending of security votes by Nasarawa State between 2011 to date,” Oludare quoted the governor as saying.
“I am directed to draw your attention to the fact that the information being requested covers a period of eight years and will require more than 7 days to process.
