NHRC Receives Over Two Million Complaints in One Year — Tony Ojukwu

The Executive Secretary, National Human Rights Commission, NHRC, Tony Ojukwu (SAN), has said that the commission received more than two million complaints in a year.

Ojukwu also said if each of the complaints is investigated with a sum of N5,000, it will cost the commission nothing less than N10 million to investigate the complaints.

The human rights agency chief said the annual budget of the commission is N4.5 billion and it’s expected to carry out its activities such as rents for its state offices, salaries and investigations of complaints among other responsibilities from the budget.

He decried the low budgetary allocation to the commission, adding that the paltry annual budget allocation of N4.5 billion is grossly inadequate to meet the mandates of the commission.
