The United States and other countries have offered president Buhari assurances that they will render assistance in his quest to recover money stolen from past political officer holders.
According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President spoke while granting audience to members of the Northern Traditional Rulers Council, led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Buhari said it was now up to Nigeria to provide the international community with the facts and figures needed to drive the recovery effort.
He said he would be busy, in the next three months, getting the facts that would help in recovering the stolen funds.
“In the next three months, our administration will be busy getting those facts and the figures to help us recover our stolen funds in foreign countries,’’ the President said.
Citing the report submitted by the Ahmed Joda-led transition committee, Buhari said several revenue-generating institutions in the country had been compromised, leading to a weak economy.
