EFCC, other anti-graft agencies can’t account for recovered loot – Senate President Saraki

Senate-President-Bukola-Saraki

Dr. Bukola Saraki, the President of the Senate, on Tuesday in Abuja, at a retreat tagged “Strategic Retreat on Tracking and Progress of Anti-Corruption Bills in the National Assembly,” alleges that anti graft agencies cannot account for some recovered stolen funds.

According to him, this was why some countries do not have confidence in Nigeria to properly manage asset recovered from looters.

“In related matters, Nigeria is finding it difficult to convince other nations to return funds looted from our treasury. This is because of the other nations’ exasperation over the management of returned assets.

“Only recently, Mr. President inaugurated a committee to audit all assets recovered by various government agencies.

“An ad hoc committee of the Senate, which is investigating some administrative infractions in the Executive, has discovered that many properties recovered from a fugitive from the law have not been accounted for by the investigating agency. This gives the global community great concern about the commitment of Nigeria to the anti-corruption drive,” he said.
