Government officials who served under former President Goodluck Jonathan have started returning some of the assets they took away when they left office.
“We have the names of most of them on ground already. What the committee is doing at the moment is to ascertain whether due process was followed before they took the property as their personal possessions.“Once discovered that they did not buy them in line with the monetization process initiated by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, they will still be prosecuted.”
President Muhammadu Buhari was said to have set up a committee consisting of security agents and civil servants to identify and recover public assets still with former political appointees. The Senior Special Assistant to the president on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu also confirmed the asset recovery process.
