SERAP Sues Buhari, Others Over Plan To Monitor WhatsApp Messages, Phone Calls

This is what our African leaders are good at, "detectorship" They want to detect on people what to do. This is very ridiculous one, I haven't seen such kind or level of detectorship before.

Buhari the president of Nigeria, now wants to monitor the phone calls of the people and their messages on WhatsApp. What a sick game is this? Is he afraid of what exactly? Does he think the people of Nigeria can shoot down his aeroplane. He thinks that they can nake plan to assassinate him, he just want to hear the conversations of the people against his party or conspiracy of bandits against Nigeria.

Whatever it is for, if they want him gone, he will be gone. If they want to kill him, they will kill him, believe me. People can make plans if they want to kill him. So this what he is trying to do can just frustrate the Nigerians citizens more and more. The more they feel that Nigeria is becoming unbearable for them to stay, the more they hate him.

This is so pathetic, African leaders, these old people, they must go. It is time for young people to enter politics and change things.

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has filed a lawsuit against President Muhammadu Buhari, urging the court to “declare illegal and unconstitutional the plan by the present administration to track, intercept and monitor WhatsApp messages, phone calls, and text messages of Nigerians and other people.”

According to SERAP, it severely threatens and violates the right to the preservation of privacy.

The suit followed the proposal in the Supplementary Appropriation Act signed in July 2021 to spend N4.87 billions to monitor private calls and messages.

The amount was part of the N895.8billion supplementary budget approved by the National Assembly.

In the suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/1240/2021 filed at the Federal High Court in Abuja last Friday, SERAP is seeking: “an order of perpetual injunction restraining President Buhari and any other authority, persons or group of persons from unlawfully monitoring the WhatsApp messages, phone calls and text messages of Nigerians and other people.”

The suit was filed by SERAP’s lawyers, Kehinde Oyewumi and Kolawole Oluwadare.
