Buhari: All recovered assets will be sold off

President Muhammadu Buhari says all mismanaged and misappropriated national assets recovered will be sold off and proceeds paid to the treasury for the country’s benefit.

He vowed that he would not allow a repeat of what happened in the 1980s when buildings and other ill-gotten property seized by his military administration were returned to corrupt officials following his ouster as Head of State.

Buhari, according to his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Malam Garba Shehu, said this on Monday in his Daura country home in Katsina State while receiving representatives of social groups in Daura Emirate.

The president said his administration would continue to pursue a robust, effective and legitimate anti-corruption campaign that safeguards the treasury and commonwealth of all Nigerians.

He assured that the All Progressives Congress-led government would consolidate on the gains and monumental achievements in the development of infrastructure across the country.

 “For most ordinary Nigerians, if you give them good roads, railway and stable electric power they will be happy to carry on with their lives.

‘‘We are doing so much for our country and we will continue to do more out of the fear of God,” President Buhari said.

On agriculture development, he promised that the Federal Government would sustain the provision of funds, improved seedlings and fertilizer to farmers to ensure that the sector remains the largest employer of labour to Nigerians.

President Buhari said the records of achievements on security, war against corruption and the revival of the economy had remained very impressive.

He expressed delight that more young people were venturing into agribusiness; while security, especially in the northeast, had remarkably changed from what he met in 2015.

Alhaji Mohammed Saleh, the spokesman of the delegations, commended President Buhari for implementing policies and programmes that have created gainful employment to thousands of young Nigerians under the Social Investment Programme.

Saleh said improved electricity supply in their communities and growing foreign reserves are clear indications of good management of the economy under the present administration.

The delegations also congratulated the President on his appointment as the continental Champion against corruption by the African Union, noting that it underscored the global appreciation of the good work he is doing in fighting corruption.

They also commiserated with the President on the recent loss of his close family members. 

The groups represented at the meeting were the Daura Emirate Coalition of Associations; the Amalgamation of Daura Emirate Political Associations; the Buhari Group; the Daura Emirate Development Forum; Women in Politics in Daura Emirate and the Daura Emirate Consultative Forum.
