Buhari goes after unreturned government assets

17 August 2015, 10:57

Abuja - A committee has been set up by the Federal Government saddled with the responsibility of recovering government property from former government officials.

Sources close to the Presidency have revealed that a number of former government officials are still in possession of vehicles, buildings, generator sets and other entitlements that came with their previous positions.

According to the sources, in spite vacating their various offices almost three months ago, many are yet to return these government properties.

To this effect, government has set up a committee made up of civil servants and security agents to recover the unreturned public assets from the political office holders, who had left office.

During a chat with some newsmen in Abuja on Sunday, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, confirmed the situation.

"That is precisely the case, even here at the Villa, there are cars and other property belonging to the government which are yet to be returned."

According to him, the Buhari’s administration will soon begin to demand for the return of these assets.

He stressed that the aim was not to embarrass anyone but to return the properties to government.
