The announcement is coming on the heels of President Muhammadu Buhari’s failure to disclose the recovered loots in his Democracy Day nationwide broadcast as promised.

Buhari had, in an interview with Channels Television in the United Kingdom where he took part in the London Anti-Corruption Summit recently, pledged to speak on May 29 on “what has come out, what has been recovered, in whatever currency, from which ministry, department and individuals, I intend on the 29th to speak on this…”.

But rather than disclose the recovered loots on Sunday morning, the president only confirmed that significant amount of assets had been recovered.

His failure to act as earlier promised, left millions of Nigerians apparently reeling in disappointment.

Records will be obtained from the CBN and the investigation agencies regarding recovery and seizures, and actual status with regard to frozen sums in banks and assets held wherever they are. Going forward,he has asked them to update the information periodically. The minister should be ready with this when work resumes, possibly Wednesday or Thursday.
