Buhari orders sale of seized assets


President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said that he had instructed relevant agencies that all forfeited assets be sold and the money put in the Treasury Single Account.

The president made the disclosure while hosting members of Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption at the State House, Abuja.

He recalled that in the past, seized assets from officials who could not explain how they got them were returned to them when government was changed.

“Let’s see who will now take back the money from the treasury, and give back to those people, as was done in the past,” he said.
