Buhari fails to keep promise to release names of looters, recovered assets

29 May 2016, 15:44Lekan Oladeinde

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhar on Sunday in his commemorative first anniversary broadcast  failed  to reveal the list of Nigeria’s treasury looters as promised weeks before.

Buhari had on May 14 said in London that he would on May 29 personally provide specific details of all recovered stolen public funds because he believed that what Nigerians were being fed through the media were not detailed enough.

Buhari has, however shifted the responsibility of naming the looters of national assets and the details of the loot to the Ministry of Information.

Buhari in his speech only spoke about the difficulties being encountered in recovering loot from the looters.

He stated that despite the obstacles, a considerable portion of the looted assets are at different stages of recovery in different jurisdictions.

He said: We are also engaged in making recoveries of stolen assets some of which are in different jurisdictions. 

"The processes of recovery can be tedious and time consuming, but today I can confirm that thus far: significant amount of assets have been recovered. “A considerable portion of these are at different stages of recovery." 

"Full details of the status and categories of the assets will now be published by the Ministry of Information and updated periodically.”
