Two reasons why Buhari was sued by the Socio-economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP).

The president of Nigeria Mohammad buhari was sued by the socio - economic right and accountability project (SERAP) for 2 reasons 

1. President Mohammad buhari signed in July 2021 to spend 4.87 bn to monitor private calls and WhatsApp messages The amount is part of the N895.8bn supplementary budget approved by the National Assembly.

So the socio-economic right and accountability (SERAP) project filled a case against president Mohammad buhari asking the court to declare illegal and unconstitutional the act to monitor privates calls and messages of Nigerians because it poses a threat and violate the rights human privacy.

2. The socio - economic right and accountability project also said that trying to monitor private calls and messages of Nigerians, that it threatens and violates the section 37 and 39 of Nigeria constitution 1999. So it should not be an option for buhari to do that cause it violating human right and as the president of Nigeria he supposed to guide the constitution and not violate it.

And also SERAP is arguing that “The plan to monitor WhatsApp messages, phone calls and text messages is an arbitrary interference by the administration into respect for family and private life, the home, and correspondence. It also fails to meet the requirements of legality, necessity, and proportionality.
