What Nigeria will do with $320 million Abacha loot – Buhari

The federal government on Monday in Abuja announced that $320 million stolen funds by late military dictator, Sani Abacha, would be spent on the Conditional Cash Transfer scheme of the administration to support the poor.

Declaring open the 8th Commonwealth Conference of Anti-Corruption Agencies in Africa, Mr Buhari, represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, said it was one condition given by the Switzerland authorities for the repatriation of the funds.

Mr Buhari said that The Global Forum on Asset Recovery (GFAR) after its inaugural meeting in Washington, DC, in December 2017, had facilitated efforts toward asset recovery and return.

“The GFAR saw the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Nigeria and the Government of Switzerland for the return of an additional $320 million of the Sani Abacha loot.

“Included in that agreement is the commitment that the funds would be invested in one of the Nigeria’s flagship social investment programmes, the Conditional Cash Transfer scheme targeted at the poorest and most vulnerable households in our country.’’

    I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your
    RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk
    about this blog with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  2. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Many thanks!

  3. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who has been doing a little homework on this.
    And he in fact ordered me lunch simply because I found it for
    him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this subject here on your blog.

  4. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
