President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that his government will recover much of the monies looted from the treasuries of Nigeria with an initiative he will put in place.
Buhari said by the time his government’s anti-corruption programme is unveiled, those who stole blindly from the government coffers would cough out every money that have stolen.
He insisted that, ‘Stealing is now corruption and nobody will be allowed to go free with our money’.
Buhari made this known in Daura recently when responding to entreaties from supporters of the APC who urged him to keep to his promises to Nigerians and not take the war against corruption with levity.
He is set will put in place a committee to probe the monies generated by the Nigerian government in the past few years and determining how much had been misappropriated within the period.
One of the APC top members who was in attendance at the brief meeting in Daura said the President-elect was optimistic that those who stole from Nigeria in all tiers will return what they stole very soon.
He said Buhari was of the view that while he would not go all out to initiate a process to jail looters of the treasury, anyone who failed to co-operate with measures to be put in place for recovery of looted funds will have to face the consequences.tweet Follow @@metrolens1
